Just got off the phone with David Franke and he's feeling very good about the meetings.
``I think the direction that this league is going to take in the future will totally be from a geographic standpoint,'' he said. ``For the first time since I've been involved in this business (back to the mid-1980s) georgraphy has been decided upon as the main factor in the league's make-up. I think we're going to be a lot stronger in the future.''
There's no change in the veteran rule or in the roster size. He said the schedule will be the best the Komets have ever had in the UHL, cutting down on travel and wear and tear on the players. He also said he believes the hard cap can and will be enforced.
Lance Galbraith has a player-option on his contract, and he can sign somewhere else, but first he has to clear UHL waivers. That has not happened, but probably will.
David Hukalo has signed and offer sheet, not a contract. They could not sign players to contracts until after the league meetings, and that will be taken care of next week. So far no other player has signed.
