Tailing the Komets

Ks trade for Tab Lardner

The Komets announced Friday that veteran winger Tab Lardner has been acquired from the Missouri Mavericks of the Central Hockey League (CHL) in exchange for considerations.

 Lardner, 30, is in his seventh season of play in the CHL and his 10th pro season.  He has appeared in 15 games during 2010-11 with Missouri and leads the Mavericks with seven assists and ranks fourth on the team with 10 points.  Lardner spent the last three seasons with Port Huron in the IHL and scored 95 goals and 186 points in 199 games.

The Edmonton, Alberta native is expected to arrive in Fort Wayne Monday and begin practicing with the Komets on Tuesday of next week.

Everyone will be fighting for there jobs this weekend!

Interesting, another IHL retread... I wonder who's on the bubble?? One of our many D-men or Legault???

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 8:18pm

If we can trade for Larrrry somehow, then change Icy from an eagle to an ice hawk, the transformation will be complete. Heck, there's already tons of people walking around the jungle in black and red jerseys...

Lardner was always pretty good though, so hopefully this helps.

If you read on the other blog it says lardner is a high paid guy and a vet so to make room a high profile guy will be moved next week......we will see who goes i have christmas list of who i want to see go......

I like Tab Lardner. Nice pick-up....and he is definitely familiar with Patrosso and Narauto.....I think it is a great move because it is a major upgrade in talent.....and he might also get 2 of your bigger offseason signings going as well.

Even though we looked better last night, we still needed something.

Let's hope this is the something that gets them going.

Here is the list of players that I think might be the "considered" player.....

Reiter, Leo, Curadeau.....maybe they throw in a defenseman and/or a Legault?

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 8:55pm

They can have Warner....

Why in the HE(double hockey sticks) is Cescon the scratch tonight?

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 9:02pm

1-1. A lil over half way thru the first. 2 PP goals (Shrock)

Hit Somebody!!!
Fri, 11/26/2010 - 9:12pm

He took a puck to the shin last night, not once, but twice. I hope that is all it is.

I am nervous now....did they trade Cescon?

For that, I would be extremely, ultimately, and unequivocally PO'd.....

Sorry for the extra flare.....I am listening to Fic during the CHLTV telecast......LOL

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 9:14pm

Curdy scores....2-1 K's @ 1st intermission.

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 9:14pm

Curadeau makes it 2-1 late in the first

Hit Somebody!!!

My #1 guess is Reiter is traded. Could be wrong.....but I think he has the most value, and might be at the same $$$ amount or close.

People will hate that.....but they can surely find a back-up for Nick without too much trouble.

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 9:22pm

well i certainly hope not......i would trade leo or pc in a heartbeat....wont mention dupuis because it wont happen or warner....but problem with pc or leo is that they probably would refuse trade and retire.....ugh.........guess we just wait and see...

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 9:33pm

Tab Lardner? The same guy who Mitch Woods decked in our shellacking of Port Huron last season? Holy crap.

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 9:34pm

According to Bob Chase, Phillips is given credit for Curdy's goal...Curdy gets the assist...

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 9:35pm

is there another bobby phillips on the komets? because i read on here last night that he was on the 10 day ir. because he just scored a goal

Hit Somebody!!!
Fri, 11/26/2010 - 9:49pm

I wondered the samething guys.....Phillips was 10-day IRed, I read it here.

Cohn said he was a healthy scratch.....

Not sure....

Let's flip a coin. LOL

PC isn't going anywhere.....he sells insurance here.

Hit Somebody!!!
Fri, 11/26/2010 - 9:52pm

Schrock just beat the crap out of Cody.....

Fic said that Cody won that fight.....Whatever.

Fic=Homer Simpson.

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 9:52pm

i know pc isnt going anywhere.....everybody knows he sells insurance here.....but you can have a wish list......he is on it for sure.....

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 10:06pm

im sure he could sell insurance in a different city if he wanted to...

Hit Somebody!!!
Fri, 11/26/2010 - 10:15pm

PC will not be traded.....you can wish and hope all you want....not gonna happen. He would retire first.

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 10:32pm

Franke scores at 1:28 of 3rd....K's up 3-1...

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 10:33pm

Err....I meant to say Frankie DeAngelis....oops!

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 10:36pm

Hope they don't trade Reiter with the way he's playing tonight--what a game--hang in there Komets!

So if PC retires his contract comes off the books and they have more flexibility to do something else.
Woods incident aside I like this pickup. This is a good hockey player.

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 10:55pm

oh man, i hated lardner when he played for PH. let's hope that hate turns into some love as a komet.

Blake, we need another story like you did on patrosso when he became a komet, but this time on lardner.

AND if reiter is a gone man, i will throw the biggest two year old tantrum that you have ever seen.

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 10:57pm

wow, another one of my favs is logging a lot of PM tonight. up to 9...come on schrocky!!

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 11:04pm

K's win, 4-2....

Fri, 11/26/2010 - 11:06pm

way to go komets!!!! Finish off the weekend sweep tomorrow....btw when are those games that evansvilles plays its home games in fortwayne????

Hit Somebody!!!
Fri, 11/26/2010 - 11:07pm

I hope it is not Reiter....I really like him.

It would have to be a higher paid player, and most likely a higher profile guy, right?

Not unless someone is retiring.....and I can't see that happening, as that would be shocking.

It doesn't seem that Missouri is hurting for Goalies.

Hit Somebody!!!
Fri, 11/26/2010 - 11:09pm

Nice win tonight....

It looks like the Komets are coming to life.

Tab will make them that much more dangerous.
