Just got Worried.

Was hoping that the City of Rapid and the CHL didn't detain you guys and take your computers and writing materials.....

I think there is a good argument to get out of this league. I'm not saying the Ks would have won but to disallow goals and to have off ice officials doing it really smelled badly. There was also at least one RC goal that should not of counted. Just think what a different game it would have been. It's really sad that the game was decided by these people and not the players. It's a sad day for hockey when cheats, bullies and whiners rule the Cheaters Hockey League.

Why does the jersey auction have to be on a wed? Why not a fri or sat when alot of komet fans do not have to work and would like to go, it really strikes me funny how that date was set already!!! What a way to to put a hex on the team!!

Rick, it most likely because it is easier to get the expo center on a week night rather than a weekend, with weddings and parties going on. They always have in on a week night. It will be interesting how much smaller the crowd is this year, not winning the cup...

I would go if i did not have to work just to show my appreciation for the hard work the players put out this season.

kometswin, maybe you can take a second to stop whining to see the hypocrisy of your post.... Komets dont win and you throw a tantrum...go figure...

The only good arguement for leaving the CHL is that AA hockey may implode.... Not winning a championship in this league is not a good reason....

The Komets wiffed on shots, were passing it into thier team mates skates, defenseman were unable to cover players around the net, took multiple bad penalties, and they started off slow. That equalled a loss in game 5.....

The Komets put up a hell of a good fight in the playoffs. They went out on a positive note...

Also, most of the players will be heading home ASAP.

The Rapid City fan is still here and I would like to make some comments. First of all this series was probably one of the most exciting series that a fan could witness. 5 games of excellent hockey and this fan would have been very happy to watch a 7 game series between these 2 teams. I atteneded both games in Ft Wayne and to be honest I'm glad we don't have to play there again this season. The Komets played well at home and the way I look at it is your barn is tough to win in. As for switching leagues my question is why would you wan to do that ? The puck dropped and the games were played and it is over now so look forward to the future and next year will be a different year for the Komets. Who know's maybe next year I can get some of the Indiana Wild Bunch to visit South Dakota for some excellent playoff hockey. Thanks again for the excellent hockey

Congrats to the team Frodawg. Tough series. The fact of the matter is 17 to 20 hours on a bus is not going to work. I agree with most on here that a more regionalized approach is needed in AA hockey.
With that being said, it would appear that there are a lot of balls in the air for quite a few teams. Will they be around next year? I think we will have some answers very quickly from some markets.
Going forward it will be difficult to form the type of leagues that will have reduced travel and the opportunity to develop competitively.
However, there is no harm in having the vision.
