Tailing the Komets

Practice report

Matheiu Curadeau missed skating today with a lower leg injury, but said he'll be fine to play on Friday... Komets trainer Shawn Dundon and equipment managers Mark Bradtmueller and Andy Desmond had to scramble all weekend to make their equipment make weight for the air travel. They spent a lot of time switching things around to even out bags, and such, but somehow made it all work... The last time the Komets flKomets GM David Franke said he's not sure when help is coming from Springfield... He's also not sure what roster moves the team will make this week. Keith Rodger and David Cianfrini are eligible to come off IR...

We're already seeing the greatness of affiliation...

"Jammed Finger".... sounds like a trip to the IR...

Sounds like a trip to a exotic finger specialist in Sweden? Have a nice long trip and take your time.

I think a call to the airline and a scale would have saved them a lot of hassle. IMO.

Ignorance is, aw, never mind..........................

Well, since this CHL doesn't seem to like fights, as the refs call an instigator for the stupidest of reasons....I say Legault is expendible.

I think with guys like Fletcher, Schrock, Cescon, and Rodger on the ice, we would be just fine in the Church Hockey League.....

I hope all the games this year aren't called the way they have been thus far that I have seen.

The games in Arizona were making me long for Jim Hawthorne and Co.

I am sure Mightbite has an announcement to make this week on our new "GOON"....seeing that it is all most Oct. 31st and he said that our new "GOON" would be here by then.

By the way, I have a Kevin Bertram card and a Grand Piano to prop-up my mortal remains......

Hit, I might be interested in the piano if Stephane Beauregard played it. Is it autographed? :-)

Tue, 10/26/2010 - 9:00pm

Where is Mightbite?

Tue, 10/26/2010 - 9:40pm

Didn't we attempt to fly to KC in recent history? Komets bussed to detroit to fly out but weather cancelled the flight, bags flew on to KC and KOmets didn't have equipment for a couple of days until NWA flew it back to detroit.

Schebig looks like wilford Brimley

If they can get the offense kick started and get used to the NHL rules called games they should be ok... Defense is there again so far (team GAA of 2.33)... Some tough roster decisions still have to be made though, IMO...

Wed, 10/27/2010 - 8:25am

I think Mightbite said "the goon" signed with Colorado instead.

Wed, 10/27/2010 - 10:33am

Let's kick start with offense with adding Varone to the roster!!!

If Legault could do anything well besides fight I wouldn't be so down on him. Actually, does he even do that well? The guy can't keep his balance when trying to backcheck which is why he and Dupuis will lead the league in hooking and holding penalties this year so how can he keep his balance while trying to dodge jabs and uppercuts?

Wed, 10/27/2010 - 11:18am

The "Goon" that Mightbite was referring to is Mike Sgroi. And as stated above he was signed by Colorado Golden Eagles.

Hit Somebody!!!
Wed, 10/27/2010 - 4:33pm

Well, I don't have a Mike Sgroi signed card or a Mike Sgroi jersey.....but I am wearing a pair of pants with holes in both front pockets......:)

And no, I did not play hockey, but I stayed in a Holiday Inn last weekend in Columbus OH.

Rick Varone needs the Komets more than the Komets need Rick Varone. Bloomington Fans on FYC said that he didn't like playing here anyway.

No Halloween Parade at the Komet Game=No Ninjas on Ice=No Goons signed by the Komets=No news from Mightbite=Jungle Monkey wears a cup to the MC.:(

Wed, 10/27/2010 - 5:19pm

Hit, it has to be a Holiday Inn Express to count, sorry. Agree with you on Varone, not sure why a few fans think he would help this team.

Wed, 10/27/2010 - 5:45pm

Fans here tend to like players who arent good enough to play for the Komets anymore...

Wed, 10/27/2010 - 7:04pm

Where's Jeff Worlton when you need him???...


Hit Somebody!!!
Wed, 10/27/2010 - 7:57pm

Worlton??? You are aiming too low....

Let's bring back Mitch Woods......

Oh, right, we all ready tryed that one.....LOL

And I don't care how many jerseys you own of his, JR... and I don't need one, nor do I need 225 autographed cards of his.

Sergei Durdin if you wanna get the ladies attention on here, JR. JM likes him too....LOL

Thu, 10/28/2010 - 6:14am

What's Logan/Bertram up to??

Thu, 10/28/2010 - 6:18am

Springfield benches at least 2 d-men a night, at most 3 for some reason. No clue why we aren't getting people from out new found "farm" system.

Thu, 10/28/2010 - 7:22am

Ahhhh yes, the flying knee assassin, Sergei Durdin....

Lets go to someone who couldnt skate at all...Tommy Buldoc!

Thu, 10/28/2010 - 7:23am

Gotta be a former D-man coaching Springfield then, Chaulker... Only former D-men carry 12 D-men on the roster... :)

Thu, 10/28/2010 - 8:50am

Rob Riley was a center but his playing career didn't go beyond college. His coaching career seems to have some impressive accomplishments and one not so impressive at Army but recruiting for the academies is always a tough situation and a great record in hockey at one of the military academies has to be an almost impossible accomplishment I would think.


Hit Somebody!!!
Thu, 10/28/2010 - 7:58pm

What we need is to find a 41 year old "semi" retired forward to play for us.......


Fri, 10/29/2010 - 4:30am

Honestly Hit, I think Shafranov would do very well in the CHL... Could you imagine someone who can handle and pass the puck like Shafranov in the mugging free NHL-called CHL game? He's not the fastest guy by a long shot; but he was always in the right position on the ice...smart hockey player...

Fri, 10/29/2010 - 9:03am

Hit ? .. bloomington fans said that Varone didn't like playing HERE? Fort Wayne or Bloomington ??? .. Rick liked being in Fort Wayne and playing for the Komets ! ...

Fri, 10/29/2010 - 9:55am

Varone talked alot of smack about the K's organization after his exit from the K's roster...

Might have said a few things he regrets now that he's looking for work???

Fri, 10/29/2010 - 11:20am

Varone is a pretty decent player when healthy, he'll find work.

As far as talking some smack, I guess a team convincing you to stay when you have a offer in Europe, then dumping you 25% into the season will make you do that. I'm not sure I blame him.
