Tailing the Komets

More info

From David Franke: ``I think what you are seeing in our league because of your hard
cap, we've actually got everybody slotted for X number of dollars. We have to
find guys who will play for the slotted area that we have in mind. That's one
reason why you're not seeing a rash of signings out of our league. We're
working with a hard cap and everybody is playing by the rules. It's just going
to take a while to get everything put together. We've got a lot offers out.''

``We still have a first line winger slot, and our second line will be a
line that can contribute scoring. We have some of these offers that also include
possible two ways with Bridgeport. It's all just going to take time to unfold and I think that's why you're seeing a slower pace. Everybody has to fit.''

``We're having discussions with some of the players that Domber has suggested, and with players that Richardson has discussed. It's a money situation and for some of these guys can they get
hocked up to a raining camp in the AHL in the fall.''

From Pat Bingham:

``We still have to do our due diligence. Usually guys want to play on a good team and usually they wouldn't recommend a friend just because he's a nice guy. They want somebody who will have their back.''

``You start to get a little bit antsy when guys aren't signing as quickly as you want but you just have to stay active on the telephone. Who can blame them they want to start in the AHL or the NHL? Those are the guys who are waiting for those opportunities first. We just have to be patient.''

``You want a team with depth. It's a challenge. It really is. We're all after the same guys and you're all trying to plug them into your template. You want excellence and a great team, but there should be a lot of parity in the league. The goal is to continue to get better throughout the year so by the end you have a team that can make a run at a cup. You're trying to create a masterpiece.''

David Welker announces he will be moving the Komets to Albany, NY. The team will be known as the Albany Choppers.

It will later be reported that Mr. Welker will sign himself to a contract as a defenseman.

Good late evening all. I turned 33 at midnight. I swore when my age hit my old hockey number my life was over LOL
Greg I did see that and good riddance to him! He and Bob Pulford ruined two of the most storied franchises in the NHL. I will always think fondly of Sinden for coaching Team Canada in the 72 Summit Series but that was the LAST good thing he did for the game!

Happy B-Day Tony!

Thu, 08/10/2006 - 3:13am

Happy Birthday Tony!

Thu, 08/10/2006 - 4:20am

I saw where Brad MacMillan signed with the Columbia Inferno

Thu, 08/10/2006 - 4:33am

Happy Birthday Tony. Yeah I thought you'd get a kick out of Sinden, now if something could be done about Pulford so the Hawks could get a real team. And so that Comcast could show some home games for once.

I just saw where Steve "Mini Me" Cygan Signed with the Chicago Hounds. Puhalski likes those small players doesn't he.

Jungle Monkey
Thu, 08/10/2006 - 5:32am

Helps him deal with his inferiority complex.

Thu, 08/10/2006 - 5:40am

I would think that he'd be upset that a pip squeak like Cygan shows more engery in one game than Puhalski does all year.

Thanks everyone. I don't know if I am happy or not LOL.

Not surprising Cygan signed there since he is from Illinois and probably still has connections from his days at Rockford. Honestly, he could play for me anytime. On the small size sure but quick. Not a front line center but a very good 2 or 3.

Thu, 08/10/2006 - 7:09am

TYPO ..."on the small SIDE"

Thu, 08/10/2006 - 7:15am

I wouldn't call that a typo, small size works just as well.

Thu, 08/10/2006 - 7:21am

Lol, I just figured I better correct myself before someone else does it for me ;-)

Thu, 08/10/2006 - 9:13am
