Tailing the Komets

Hey scoop guys

There are nine home games left in the season and I have yet to catch anything. C'mon, show me what you've got, though I thought the little guy tonight might have had the best arm. Definitely the most potential.

Pretty decent game tonight, in large part because of the officiating, I thought. Referee Ian Croft let them play and let the physical stuff go. Players were also allowed to use their sticks and hands more on defense like they would in the playoffs. Croft only seemed to make calls when there were potential scoring chances or the potential for someone to get hurt. It made for a fun game.

How focused is Frenchy right now?

If that is considered good referring, then you are right about the other guys in this league. IMO I thought some of his calls tonight were horrible and let some obvious calls go. The K's are an all effort type of team and tonight everyone gave great effort. QC was a little chippy towards the end with Trembly and Olkny (sp) trying to mix things up. It was a playoff type of game. I thought the Whyte, Miller, Carpentier line tonight was noticeable from start to finish.

So many times on this blog we talk about if the Komets are ``tough'' enough. Well, this was a tough game to play and they won it. It was physical on both sides, and I have the philosophy you ought to be able to take a hit to make a play, or put up with a little stickwork. C'mon this is the team directly behind the Komets, it should have been a little bit chippy and it was. I liked the way Croft called the game because it had flow and pace and the players had to endure a little bit. He didn't call the ticky-tacky stuff that we all hate. Did he let them get away with some stuff? Sure, but I'd much rather have it that way than the other way where the ref takes total control. Boring.

Blake, I agree....this was a much better game to watch. Croft did let them play for the most part. Granted, there were some times where I thought he might call something, but it was a lot better than what we normally get to see. Frenchy was awesome tonight....I loved the save he made when he stretched out and held the puck against the outside the net....but the team played better in front of him 2nite. They guys really need to turn it up another notch on Saturday. Let's get 6 pts this weekend!

I'll see what I can do. As the season goes, so does the chicken wing.

Scoops, call up Mr. Bonds and see if you can latch on to some of that "cream and clear" stuff that he denies using. If you can't reach him, try Eric Gagne of the Dodgers. For that matter, try any of the Major Leaguers. They all can help your weakened chicken wing with just the right juice. It seems to pass urine tests too.

I think Kelly Miller is playing as good as anybody on the team right now, If he had any luck at all in last 4-5 games he have about 6-7 goals.I like our team. We play as hard as anybody.

DL, you may want to look a little closer at him. He has lost 10 mph on his fast ball and has lost tons of upper-body mass. He had a mysterious injury last year that kept him out of the line-up for much of last year and sounds like he may or may not pitch this year as he left spring training early. Other mysterious injury players of last couple of years: Mr. Sosa, Mr. Bonds, Mr. Giambi, to name a few. They either had an injury/illness related to the foreign substances or were hiding from Mr. Pee-Pee doctor. Baseball has a mess on their hands. It's not just the big sluggers who are going to suffer, there are pitchers who are going to pay heavily too.

Also if you look at Gagne 4-5 years ago, he was not a natural hard thrower. They moved him to the bull-pen because he was throwing beachballs up there and then he over-night the next season started throwing upper 90's. Now he can't break a pane of glass. Curious? Back to hockey....

I don't think you will be seeing a repeat performance for a few years for the little man. Management just about stroked out when they saw him out there. Plus, even at 3 years old, he was pretty embarassed about taking a spill!! Alright Blake, you threw down the gauntlet. I usually let scoops focus on the upper deck, but if your gonna call us out I guess I will have to give it a whirl!! Go K's!!

Too bad, looked like he was having a ball.
