Komets General Manager David Franke said today the Komets are not interested in signing forward Luke Stauffacher who became an unrestricted free agent today.
``With Syro back and Woods coming back in aabout two weeks. we just don't have the room on the salary cap or the roster. Syro coming back really addressed our problem for an offensive foward. I think if Matt had not come back to Fort Wayne, then Stauffacher would have definitely have been somebody we would have gone after. We don't have room for Luke on the cap or on the roster without totaly retooling the whole team. I don't think we want to get into that deal this late in the season.''
Muskegon put Big Snake on its 45-day non-roster spot last weekend.
``In my opinion he's probably done playing professional hockey this year,'' Franke said. ``I wouldn't have any interest in him. I never really liked him as a player, and I don't think there's a role for him on our club. We have those roles taken care of.''
