Tailing the Komets

Injury report

Pascal is out 1-2 weeks with a separated shoulder. K.J. said he mostly got the wind knocked out of him, and the rest of the team left under its own power.

How bad is Flint? Except for the cheap shots, could you even tell they were on the ice after the first period? They looked incredibly disorganized. There were quite a few times when Generals were looking around at each other like they were trying to figure out who was supposed to do what.

I like and have a ton of respect for Kevin Kerr and Al Sims. I hope they can get this pulled together because both are quality men and hockey people. I just wonder what kind of resources they have to work with. I don't know, but when you look at the Generals' attendance numbers you have to wonder. Generals fans have always impressed me as some of the most passionate in the league but are there enough of them?

JM all Parsons could do was fight. How many guys like that can you name in any league anymore? Even the UHL the "enforcers" can play.

Parsons...gheesh never have I ever heard a guy who played 28 games with a team get so much love lol. What about Bruce Ramsey who was on that team all year??

grrrr...should read "even IN the UHL, the "enfocers" can play.

BTW I guess we can all look forward to Blake being in a good mood this week after tonights football game ;-)

I thought Sniper had an interesting point. Why would the Komets stoop to their level and try to play that game. That was Flint's only chance Saturday night, while they had no chance if the Komets just played the game. I think the Komets are more than capable of turning that type of game into a brawl, but that would have given Flint a better chance to win.

There have been some great points here on both sides, though. Who'da thunk it, a very intelligent discussion about pugilism. Good stuff, everybody.

And, yes, I'm in a good mood after the football game. Now if only the Dolts would lose! They must be the luckiest team on earth this season.

You mean its 2006????? Wow and all this time I thought is was 1986... Please inform me prior to the season what actual year it is so that I can correctly adjust my frame of thought.... Get off your high horse scoops, the teams who have either won the cup the last few years or came close have mostly all had some muscle on thier roster and they found a way for it to work. And before you all go crazy on me I do like this team just the way it is, I believe it is a nice refreshing change from the last few years...

I agree with you. So what is your point exactly?

Mon, 11/13/2006 - 7:30am

Have to agree with Komets 123. A fight every once in a while is OK, but I much prefer just a good overall team. Our guys are afraid to fight. They are probably 10 times smarter than lots of these guys on the other teams. Using their heads is getting them where they are right now. I love the team this year. Best one that I've seen in a long time. They do stand up for each other. Maybe they don't come out kickin butt all the time, but they show their agression thru their style of play. I just don't understand how people can complain about a tema that's got a fantastic starting record. Last year, I couldn't even find a Komet on the standings page for about the first 2-3 months. Take a look at that page now. There are FW's all over the place. Continue to do what you're doing K's.

Excuse me, that should have said that our guys are NOT afraid to fight. Typing too fast.

the whole problem is if you dont take care of cheap shot guys, just scoring a goal is not going to stop them, it will just make them get more chippy. there are times to fight and every team has guys who will drop gloves if challenged, if not then they as a team wont go far. look at the team that calls itself hockey city, muskegon always has rough and talented guys. look at the team with the most ahl callups last year, rockford, same with them. we have the toughness im just shocked we didnt stick up for the players more. if someone on my line took a vicious cross check and flopped head first into the boards, i would have been on that guy instantly, cause i sure wouldnt want him to do it to me the next trip down the ice. players know when to fight and that would have been the time but not much happened. i just wondered why not? hockey has evolved to the sissified euro style and the days of strictly a goon are gone so why do you non fight fans always bring up goon this and goon that? we all agree goons are dead so why is the word even on here anymore? fighting is just another form of message sending. dont do that to our teammates or you will get this, dont show us up in our own building or youll get this or its also a way to get the crowd and teammates fired up and back into the game. its hard to say exactly when the right time is but as tony says a player knows, and thats why i still wondered why we didnt do any retaliations on sat. maybe it was because the guys figured that fling wasnt worth the effort, i guess we need the guys to comeon here and give their opinions or maybe blake can get some comments for us.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Maybe Pat told them not to retaliate. With the officiating fiasco every game, they don't know what the heck they can and can't do anyway. Maybe some of the players would be willing to talk about, maybe not.

Mon, 11/13/2006 - 8:36am

Problem is chuckitt that the retaliater seems to always get the worst of it. If the league could grow a set it might, and I emphasize might, curb guys from committing those infractions, but when questionaalbe hits happen and there is no call, then you go after a guy and end up taking a penalty that could cause your team to lose, yeah you've sent a message to not do that again while at the same time losing the game. This is just my opinion but I think must guys would want to make sure the team wins instead of sending a message.

Mon, 11/13/2006 - 10:30am

right! but at the time i think we were ahead about four or five to one and i cant think of a better time to stand up when it looks like a team mate takes a hit that looked to me like an intent to injure. they didnt have to fight but i was looking for a little more comotion than what happened .

Mon, 11/13/2006 - 11:56am

I see your point. I'm not sure we'll ever know why they decided not to throw down. I think we just need to have a little faith that the Komets won't let that situation happen happen again.

Mon, 11/13/2006 - 12:47pm

you are right, my only point is that this is the same stuff we heard last year and we are all use to hearing the same things the last few years and then not being delivered. i just want to make sure all people remember and dont blindly listen to the company line again. i think this years team is special and i see us going all the way. ill be the ist to say it. but that wont stop me from asking questions!! thats what this blog is all about.

Mon, 11/13/2006 - 12:48pm

You got that right!!!
