Tailing the Komets

Komets hope to acquire Nasty Mirasty

The Fort Wayne Komets are negotiating to add Jon "Nasty" Mirasty to their lineup. Mirasty, 28, is 5-foot-10, 220 pounds of mean. The seven-year pro has annually averaged more than 300 penalty minutes, though he's scored only 11 goals. Mirasty is under contract to Syracuse of the American Hockey League, but has been playing with Elmira in the ECHL. In 24 games this season he has one goal and 119 penalty minutes.
``We are talking with Syracuse and there is a good chance that he could come to Fort Wayne,'' Komets general manager David Franke said. ``It's a possibility. We are talking to Syracuse and they want to find a place for him the rest of the year, and we're trying to get that done with them. Hopefully something will happen. There's nothing official right now. That could change.''
Mirasty has played most of the last four years with Syracuse in the AHL. Franke said there's a real good chance Mirasty could come to Fort Wayne, but the team has to make sure everything is finalized before making an announcement.
``I think it's an element we could use,'' Franke said. ``As a 10th forward for us, he's legitimately, big-time tough, and I think it will help our players. They'll have somebody that they know can protect them. That's this guy's job. He knows his job and does it well. Hopefully I can get it worked out that we can get this done, but nothing is official now."
In other roster news, Danko Mironovic, Neil Musselwhite, Leo Thomas and Brandon Warner all said they are ready to come off IR when needed.

Now we need to have management concentrate on getting some d-men in here that can make plays and better gaps. All night tonight they were backing in letting Wichita walk right into the zone......

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 12:52am

I hope to hear a chant of "Nasty! Nasty! Nasty!" blasting thru the coliseum...That would be an amazing signing

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 12:53am

I would probably take vacation days the rest of the season during my night shifts on game nights...lol

Talk about boosting attendance! This guy could be worth another 1000 butts in the seats here in the Fort...

Hit Somebody!!!

I can think of one Komet fan who has a man-crush on Mirasty, he even wears a Mirasty jersey to the the games....alot....he might seriously meltdown when he learns of this news.....


Sat, 02/05/2011 - 1:01am

So we need to add another fan to the cardiac watch list tonight??? LOL

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 1:02am

Thanks Blake!

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 1:28am

Ok, lets set the over/under number at 10 of how many of Mirasty's fights that Mightbite will link from youtube or hockeyfights.com........

Hit Somebody!!!
Sat, 02/05/2011 - 1:34am

Let's set the over/under at 2 for the number of Signed Mirasty jerseys he has....and 7 for number of Cards he has of him signed.

Mightbite + Mirasty = Nasty Nation.

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 1:43am

Hit, get "Nasty Nation" copyrighted NOW!!!!


Hit Somebody!!!
Sat, 02/05/2011 - 1:47am

No kidding JR.....

I just wrote the next Komet T-Shirt Heading.

How does it feel to be robbed from JM?


Sat, 02/05/2011 - 4:13am

This is unbelievable news! This would be an incredible signing!

Mirasty is the real deal and he will inject so much life into the team and the fans at the games. Teams are gonna think twice now running some of our better players. A top of the line tough guy will have an effect throughout the lineup...man I hope this happens!!!!

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 4:39am

Dare I say that Mirasty could bring back......The Jungle???

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 6:21am

WOW-WEE what a nice anniversary present :)
0 jerseys + 0 signed cards yet

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 6:38am

I have 2 Mirasty cards :)

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 7:54am

wow-wee 1 1/2 hr of watching fight videos :)

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 9:31am

Get it done Franke's.. Just get it done. The last two games of the season with Colorado should be sellouts if Nasty is on board.

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 10:30am

This could be bigger then bringing Chalk back!!!

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 10:39am

Mirasty will be in the line up TONIGHT :)

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 11:27am

Tonight's game with Wichita should have an entirely different atmosphere with Nasty in our line up!

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 11:42am

Nasty vs. Goulet
Schrock vs. Galbraith
Cescon vs. Richards

JungleMonkey vs. Bennefield

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 11:48am

The only issue is Nasty getting to Fort Wayne in time with the snowstorm...Who has a plow?

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 11:48am

But I wanted Bennefield :(

Who do I get?

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 11:50am


He is coming to Fort Wayne.

Sat, 02/05/2011 - 11:55am

I wouldn't go as far as man crush hit, but I've up since like 430 am since the news came out that 'nasty' could be here. I am extremely stoked about it. I felt bad for him getting sent down to Elmira but hey if this is the result and I can watch him break faces right in front of me then, it's worth it. I've been a fan of his since he played with Danbury and he will not disappoint. He's not a goon fighter and can skate a regular shift as you've seen with his years of AHL experience. I,for one am in shock right now and won't believe it till he's in a Komet jersey on the ice but wow oh wow this could be awesome.

GM, How bout Stumping the Schwab.. That pest was pretty annoying.
