I miss Legault. We could have really used him this year. Oh wait, that might be negative. Sorry to offend everybody!

great job super fan!

Hi Blake. I know you are frustrated with jonndfi's posts, but maybe you might have gone over the "edge" a little by re-posting his December entries to make your point. I re-read them and was surprised that I was included in some of his comments. On some, he agreed with me, and on others, he challenged me. I don't have a problem when someone disagrees with me. The fact is he didn't make any "personal" or "lewd" comments, he just had a different opinion.....there are different ways to discuss subjects. Some people will use a soft tone (non-challenging), and others are more blunt (direct). It usually depends on their personality. So saying all of that...jonndfi, as long as you use respect when posting, then I would encourage you to continue. Don't let anyone intimidate you because you have a different opinion or style of stating it. There are an awful lot of stuff that you and I do not agree on but I still read your posts and consider them.

Funny stuff Blake!

Fri, 01/01/2010 - 11:15am

I miss Legault too... Too bad he never saw ice time here.. He'd end all the bellyaching about a heavyweight.

Fri, 01/01/2010 - 11:29am

I need a Legault jersey & a Komet zoo jersey.

Fri, 01/01/2010 - 11:47am

Yeah, going to have to agree with Alan on this one. Alan, why am I agreeing with you so much? Remember our epic battles over the summer? Dang I'm getting soft. In another note, you'd better watch it. Mr. Snuff had a monster post on here that put your "books" to shame. Step it up, Alan! ;)

What is jonndfi hurting by posting his opinions? Do you have to be all roses when talking about the team on here? You have written articles in the paper talking about the negative aspects of the Komets right now and that was ok, but this person continues to stick to his/her (sorry jonndfi, don't know your gender) guns and you do a personal attack. I'm kind of lost on this one. Plus, right in the "Leave a Reply" section it says "Mail (will not be published) (required)" and you have clearly broken that written guarantee for not only jonndfi, but also Alan, Dan, and Blueline Baby just because you snapped for some reason. I really don't get that or what was done wrong here. Isn't the point of a blog to speak your opinions? Why hasn't anyone been singled out for saying "TIME HAS COME" over and over? This is a big part of the reason why a lot of people don't talk on here and only a few people repeatedly comment. Maybe that is the desired end result you are shooting for here but I still do not think this little electronic tantrum against one person for having different views was the way to go. Almost seems like a cheap shot taken by Thomas the other night after the goal that was called "bush". Hopefully no one who had their e-mails made public on here decides to make it into a bigger issue outside of the blog against the site or the paper.

On a brighter note, the Komets looked very good last night in my opinion. Granted, I don't know as much about hockey and all the intangibles as many of you on here, but I thought the guys were playing with a lot of emotion, heart, and effort. I really hope this keeps up for the remainder of the season. I was glad to see Roger getting some more ice time. Maybe seeing Klempa go lit a fire under him because he seemed to be out for blood tonight and skating a lot faster than he had in several previous games. All-in-all a great effort by the Komets. I'm going to have to agree with what Frozen wrote on the other post about how they'll do when the Jungle isn't full on a holiday game though.

A lot has been written about heart and the lack of it on this team, but I also haven't seemed to notice many of the guys looking like they're having fun at all. When they made that huge run a couple years ago at home with the streak, the team was laughing and smiling on the ice. I haven't seen that with this team other than when Haun wiped out on the ice coming out of the 1st intermission when Mac said something to him, laughed, and hit him on the leg with his stick. Not to sound too fluffy here, but a lot of success comes from having fun and enjoying being out there, on top of intensity and desire.

See Alan, THAT is how you write a book!! Hahhaahha! Burgee, please dish out my blog foul for too long of a post. I'm not drinking some sissy foo foo drink though. Give me some old No. 7 and I won't feel anything else, especially shame :)

Happy New Years everyone!

Thank you for deleting my email address, Blake. I appreciate the speedy response, as does my husband!! You, just like everyone else on here, are welcome to your opinion. That was the only part of that post I disagreed with, just so you know!!

Wendy, I'm so waiting for your response to this one....

Fri, 01/01/2010 - 5:57pm

TIME HAS COME, I think the time has come for most of the Komets to pick up there game Or make changes.Unless we are happy with a non-physical - no scoring team-4th place. Last night they looked like a team.Maybe Sims told them in the closed door meeting TIME HAS COME!!! GREAT JOB KOMETS & KEEP IT GOING.

Looks like I missed a good one, blackberry was down!

I missed a great game, too, Burgee. Thanks, FiveMinuteMajor, for texting me the updates, as always!!

Thought the first two periods were bad for both teams. Knowing that the Komets have played a lot of games in a short period of time may have made for the poor passing and shot selection. The huge crowd was sooooooooooooo silent even with those horns. As Randy and I said on the air we will see what this team is all about by their effort in the third period.....well we all know how they did and we were quick to say "Good effort guys"! The clean hit by Rodger in the third was huge then the fight right after that was good by him. He did well in both fights. Big O Legault is missed my me too. He is so soft spoken and a real gentleman off the ice. But his two years here he never got to see action in the playoffs was to bad as players live for the playoff action. All in all way to go Komets as you showed us what you are made of in the third period!!!! Keep it up guys.

You're welcome BLB, anytime! So are the K's gonna be wearing those jungle jerseys again? Love them... want one...

Hey Five!!! It would look good on you as it would go well with the red hair!!

Sat, 01/02/2010 - 12:49am

Blogfoul RunningKomet, you must post only positive things everyday for the next 7 days, 500 word minimum.

Blogfoul to all the red haired hockey chicks, excessive mitch woods postings, blogging by osmosis, whatever else anyone can pile on!

Sat, 01/02/2010 - 1:14am

I'm so glad to see that RK has decided that personal attacks are wrong. Or maybe it's just when they come from someone else.

There you go. I know you were waiting on that, BLB.

LOL.....I knew that was coming, Wendy.....it was pretty tame, but you are a nice person. That Bruin win made you very nice, and I'm proud of you! :)

And Burgee, what??!! A penalty for me? Dude....oh well, I suppose I've sat in the penalty box before, I can do it again....however I'll change your name to Langdon from now on, calling bad penalties....LOL....

Wait a minute, blogfoul for me? I didn't say anything about Mitch Woods... oh wait, I just did. Scoot over BLB and Wendy, joining you in the penalty box. Getting crowded in here. :)
And I'm very disappointed that Big Buf didn't make the Olympic team.

Sat, 01/02/2010 - 10:59am

apparently I missed something....probably because I was "trying" to sing for my supper....AGAIN!!!!!!! That should be a 5 minute major for singing and a blog misconduct for hurting everyones ears...with a clause that says I will never do that again....

Sat, 01/02/2010 - 11:37am

Believe me Wendy, I don't say the vast majority of things I think because I don't want you to know how mean I can be. You've never got anything but the tamest of versions from me ;) Besides, I always went after Alan far more than I ever went after you. He always came back after me with a "book" and we had a good laugh about it. You'd come back with something from a B movie or sci fi reference I'd never heard of, which wasn't any fun. So, I apologize for the personal attacks I guess I committed against you. I will try to focus them totally on Alan from this point forward when I come on here since he actually puts relevant statistics and real-world reasons why he believes as he does in his posts. Plus, you're a big tv star now and I don't want to compete with that status level.

All kidding aside, I really was glad to see the Komets play well the other night. That was pretty good play considering Chaulk wasn't even playing. Is there any timetable for when he is expected back? Has anyone heard anything about how Woods is doing with his training? I think we all needed a win like that at home, team and fans alike.

Sat, 01/02/2010 - 11:45am

Chaulk back tonight / Woods is doing fine / people in sec.210 was talking about Jon Booras coming to K's???????????

mightbite and Running Komet, you just wanted to sit with the girls in the box, didn't you? You ladies' men, you....

Sat, 01/02/2010 - 1:31pm

Hahaha, Blueline, you caught me. Keep it quiet though, my lady doesn't like to share. If she's reading this, JUST KIDDING! I may need to sit in the box for safety reasons rather than for a penalty...

Sat, 01/02/2010 - 3:01pm

Better in the box than the "cage"

Blueline Baby
Sat, 01/02/2010 - 3:07pm

You"ll never let that go, will you? I emailed with Durdin a while back, and he's doing well. He's liking Italy. Looks funny to see all those sponsors on the jerseys, and the team name a teeny tiny spot, very different from our jerseys!

Sat, 01/02/2010 - 3:59pm

Wait just one min. There can not be two females in the box at the same time. There really shouldn't be any. My wife is not a red head until she gets mad. You people just can not be putting people in the penalty box. Burgee aka Langdon that don't cut it either. aka Hawthorne would be better. He is the official penalty assignee. That is only because with all of his foo foo's he never get any of them right. Go away for a day and see what all I missed. Sorry!

Sat, 01/02/2010 - 4:02pm

Hi RunningKomet! Thank you for the lesson on how to write a book! Just kidding..... I think everyone should be pardoned from the penalty box.....Hey Tim, I read your post regarding the fans being "quiet" during the first two periods. As I thought about it I realized how correct you were. It was a good observation. So many times this year the K's fans have seen them blow leads that I think we are just sitting "on our hands" waiting for something bad to happen. How refreshing it was to have a couple of breaks go our way that resulted in goals. I think Fort Wayne fans are starved for some positive things to take place. Anyway, nice observation....doesn't make much sense that Bloomington would let Booras go. I hadn't seen anything on this until I read this blog. Did Bloomington waive him or is a trade brewing? I think Booras is a vet (I don't know for sure). If he was waived I would have thought that Quad City, Dayton, or even Flint would have claimed him. I'm shooting "blind" on this one so if anyone knows more, please post the information.....again, nice to hear from you again, RunningKomet.
