Tailing the Komets

How about something a little more fun

We need some nicknames for the players.
I heard Bob call the line of J.F. Labarre, Pascal Morency and Martin Gascon the Scooters today. I like it!

I also like calling Bruce Richardson, Jonathan Goodwin, Daniel Goneau, Guy Dupuis and Mario Larocque the Triple Threat Group because they can score short-handed, even-strength and on the power play.

There's also got to be a name for J.C. Ruid, K.J. Voorees and Bogdan Rudenko.

Got any ideas?

Huge weekend for the Komets....what a steal of a game tonight. McWhinney made all 4 saves in the shootout!

Sun, 11/05/2006 - 3:37pm

I second that, Hit. 'KJB line' is a real good one.

Sun, 11/05/2006 - 3:37pm

I thought about that one Hit. What do you think?

You even have a kind of Russian on that line.

Scoops all ready named the #1 line the BG's....that is good. I called them the French Fry line. But BG's is great. Larry could play Bee Gee's when they score.

JG has "Bee Gees" copywrighted. lol

Bogdan needs a nickname because no one can pronounce it correctly!

I miss Guinn so much this year, I hardly have anyone to yell at. He was great paired with Domber. You know, the Dumb and Domber line.

Now it is all about the Captain Caveman. He even looks like the Caveman from the Geico commercials. I crack-up everytime I see that commercial when he is going through the airport. I think...hey...that is Domber...Captain Caveman.

No offense here...but Daniel Goneau looks just like Beetle Juice. Dead Ringer. I even said it three times during the game last night....Beetle Juice....Beetle Juice.....Beetle Juice, and there he was. Wow that was scary!

Sun, 11/05/2006 - 4:18pm

KJB- I like that! And I have to admit I was a little bit disappointed that Larry didn't play the Captain Caveman clip when Domber scored his goal last night... May I humbly suggest a nickname for Matt #27- I'm not even gonna try to spell his last name. I just read a book where there was a character who had an even longer and harder to pronounce Polish last name, and the other characters called him "Eyechart". I immediately thought of Matt when I read that!

Sun, 11/05/2006 - 4:33pm

The guys call him Rudy.

I like KJB.

Super Fan likes me....he really likes me...OMG!!!!!!

I mean he likes my idea....oh well, you can't have everything. He still hates me guys, cancel the party.

Sun, 11/05/2006 - 6:46pm

Yes, he's always called Rudy on the ice...but he's not fond of that nickname. :)

Sun, 11/05/2006 - 7:47pm

I've already nicknamed Morrency "Tee Em" or "Testiclees Maximus" because of his ballsy showing at the november 4th game against the Flags.

That man has no fear.

I don't know what was better about the Port Huron game, Pascal doing his show after the fight, which was funnier than crap, by the way, or the way that Bruce just pummeled that guy. Everybody used to talk about Danny Stewart all the time, well Bruce has extremely fast hands also. The guy never let up. The other guy was just so surprised that all he could do was try to turn his head. At least those 2 things were entertaining when everybody was sick to death of the penalties.

Mon, 11/06/2006 - 6:59am

We just call number 27 Matt. LOL I'm not even going to try to pronounce that name. I'd just massacre it. KJB's is a great name for the line.

Mon, 11/06/2006 - 7:56am

Ruid and Larocque both had an amazing week, but my personal player of the week vote goes to Morency for entertainment value alone--that guy has a 10,000 watt personality. I am still laughing over his victory skate around the rink. This team is just so much fun to watch that it's a shame they're getting overshadowed by all the officiating crap.

Mon, 11/06/2006 - 8:03am

I totally agree Sparky. That was the most entertaining thing to happen for a long time. I talked to Pascal after the game and told him that he made our night. He just gave me that big, beautiful smile and said Thanks. What a guy!!! An asset all around.

Mon, 11/06/2006 - 9:17am

Well, he told me to call him Rudy the first time I met him. He's a lot of fun to talk to.

Mon, 11/06/2006 - 9:39am

we can come up with line nicknames but doing so for the players is not smart because theyve all ready got nicknames, we just need to find out what they are!!

Mon, 11/06/2006 - 5:36pm


Rudy is a ton of fun to talk to & a very sweet guy ( opposite on the ice) that's very passionate about hockey & glad to be reunited with Bingham. You guys are lucky to have him. I am enjoying being a Fort Wayne fan...you are all are terrific fans.
Cheers from Charlotte!

I have to admit we haven't had the best stuff to talk about yet with his suspension and all, but he's been first-class to me. I really enjoyed talking to him about Pat at the beginning of the season. It's amazing and refreshing to me to see the bond between Pat and the guys who have played for him previously. The loyalty goes both ways.

So give me some good story ideas I can talk to him about. LOL. I'm always looking for ideas.

I am always interesting in learning about the hometowns of the overseas guys as well as how they were coached as youths. Also what goes into their choice to play here instead of in Europe especially when the money probably is better there. In Rudenkos case, does he know Shaf?

Blake when I say how he was coached as a youth, take Rudenko, one of the French Canadians and any U.S. born player. I bet the leagues, playing style and coaching priorities are different. There is a reason why the Russians who played here could skate circles around much of the competition.

Mon, 11/06/2006 - 6:28pm

Rudenko came over from Russia when he was 18 and he has skated since he was four. Blake ask him about his childhood skating days...his grandfather took him to practice everyday. His stories and memories are very interesting and he smiles when he tells them.

Mon, 11/06/2006 - 6:35pm

Will do
