Guy signs

The Komets are releasing this morning that defenseman Guy Dupuis has signed a one-year deal for his 10th season with the team.

"I think it's great,'' Dupuis. ``It's pretty exciting for our family to be able to stay another year here. I know that there are a lot of changes from last year to this year. There's some excitement but also some big holes to fill. It's going to be tough to replace some guys like Colin Chaulk, P.C. Drouin and Troy Neumeier. All we can hope for is we have more depth on our team than last year. If we can get guys overall that are a bit better we can have three good lines. I'm very hopeful.''

YIPEE!!!! Welcome back GUY. What a great person and player. Now if they will only put that C on his jersey.

Great to have Guy back for another year. A good defenseman and a familiar face.

2 quality d-men signed....4 to go...

awesome...welcome back GUY

It's good to have one of our awesome defenseman back again. Now just sign Lindsay too.

Welcome back, Guy. Nice job, Frankes. Now if they can only forget about Lindsay.

I wouldn't mind seeing Lindsay back JM. He did progress very well during the season. If given the chance I think he'd be a fine defenseman.

Good signing. Now if they can finish signing Domber the defense will be forming very nicely. Sign Laroque (or a different player like him) With Frenchy in crease our defense right there should be better than last years. The other two defense spots....need at least one rookie and one more hard hitter. Oh and I agree with JM, I don't know what you guys see in Lindsay. Hopefully something that I'm missing!

To me, Lindsay seemed to pick his play up a little bit, he was more aggressive and willin to stick his nose in and get tough. Got into a few scraps as well.

Wed, 07/26/2006 - 8:58am

Any word on if we will be able to sign any of the players taken in the dispersal draft?

Wed, 07/26/2006 - 8:58am

I agree with that much of Lindsay, Greg. However, he will be a tweener now and there are dozens and dozens of better defenseman out there to fill in the tweener spots. So unless by the end of all these signings, the Komets are really tight on keeping the spending under the cap, need one more defensemen, and Lindsay comes cheap, I say let him try his luck elsewhere.

I'm really happy to see they signed Guy. Welcome back, Guy! I'd also like to see that "C" on his jersey. Looks like the ball is finally starting to roll around here. Bring on a few other tough D-men and we should be set. As far as Lindsay goes, I'd say take a hike. What do you guys see in this guy?

Wed, 07/26/2006 - 11:05am

Welcome back!

Lindsay signs with Youngstown Steelhounds of the CHL.

The bunnies will be devestated!

Good pick up IK. The CHL seems to be the place to go, that's at least the third of last years team we've lost and I think I can count 5-10 more UHL'ers that have decided to go to that league.

They have a lesser salary cap, the UHL just raised their's, I know the UHL has lost 6 teams, but what's the deal with all the defections, are guys really that afraid they won't have a job?

Great signing today...That Guy can play for an old-man. You have to hand it to that Guy, he plays hard. He is a great Guy to have around. I couldn't think of a nicer Guy. Someone should definitely pass that Guy the puck next year. Can't wait to watch that Guy skate for us again next season.

Lord, I apologize.....but I can't resist:

"There's some excitement but also some big holes to fill."

I have just the "Guy" for the job....Enema Man!!!

Ok, you "Guys" can go back to your serious conversations and debates. I apologize personally to Rich as I know I just offended him once again. Sorry MAN!

Wed, 07/26/2006 - 12:56pm

Hit! Take a deep breath buddy and relax. Too much red Kool Aid today? Or Mountain Dew? Chill out.

New rule for everyone: No more MAN jokes, no more Enema jokes or Guy jokes. Can you Guys understand what I'm saying, Man, or do I have shove it someplace without Enema Man?

Let's come up with something new PLEASE!!!!

To getting Dupuis is a GREAT! He was the best defceman the team had last year MAN! Now WE need to get domby and WE can move to front of the division!

Wed, 07/26/2006 - 4:06pm
