Tailing the Komets

Pre-camp workouts

The Komets who live in Fort Wayne are in their second week of skating at Canlan, and some of the veterans are in much better shape this September than they were last year. P.C. Drouin and Leo Thomas were keeping up with Sean O'Connor, who looks like he's in midseason form. He was amazing today. Bobby Phillips worked construction all summer and said he's as strong as he's ever been, and he looks it. Guy Dupuis, Olivier Legault, Keith Rodger and Brandon Warner have all been working out pretty hard. Nick Boucher just got back into town this afternoon.

``Last year was a lot different,'' Thomas said. ``This year I spent a little bit more time in the gym and worked on cardio a lot more than I did last year. I've been on the ice way more this summer than last summer. We've been skating the last couple of weeks here and that has helped out. Last year we didn't have this much ice.''

Drouin said he kept working out all summer, which he wasn't able to do as much last year because of the broken arm he suffeed at the end of the 2008-09 season. He's also been doing some boxing at the club in Garrett, a

I am reading elsewhere that there is to be an announcement tomorrow on a Big Player Signing.

Any guesses?

Does this mean Curdy is being kept in the AHL and they are filling his roster spot?

Did Chaulk go to Europe?

Is Arthur Kiyaga coming back? LOL Oh crap.

Tue, 09/28/2010 - 5:32pm

If Kiyaga does ever return i've got a Ugandan flag if anyone wants one!

Tue, 09/28/2010 - 5:44pm

P.C. fighting?? I hope he has a good insurance guy!

Tue, 09/28/2010 - 5:57pm

Chaulk from what i can make out on the teams website he's playing for in Italy he has played one game.

Tue, 09/28/2010 - 6:16pm

you will find out soon :)

It would not shock me if Chaulk is back. But I obviously have no clue.

Didn't power change hands out at Canlan? Wasn't there a little drama out there this summer? Could he come back to work there again, and also, there is a chance with the CHL roster rules he might well fit into one of those salary exceptions that were highlighted.

I am just thinking out loud.

Something is telling me Hodgman though. I just have a feeling. He has roots here.

Hey Mightbite.....

Cohn said the Komets said no upcoming signings.

What do you say?

Tue, 09/28/2010 - 6:58pm

Since mightbite is the one floating the teaser, then I would have to lean towards that former NHL tough guy some were talking about about a month ago or so...

Super Fan.......

Anything to add to this excitement or lack there of?

Ryan Potts is the guy MightBite? Really? You have been yanking our chains all summer on this?

You got me. Wow.

Good One. Wonka Wonka Wonka.

You are a regular George Burns.

No disrespect to Pottsy.....but really?

Potts has been labeled in Cohn's report as "a body for training camp" and "maybe a fill in on ocasion".

I mean it is cool for him, I hope he makes the best of it.

Tue, 09/28/2010 - 8:44pm

Whats this talk of Chaulk? Hes gone, right? Why would he uproot, leave, play a few games, then come back? Was that a joke? Did I miss something?

Hit Somebody!!!
Tue, 09/28/2010 - 9:02pm

I was just throwing names out there for fun....

Ask Might Bite......he seems to think he has some Big News.

Is Ryan Potts his news?

Tue, 09/28/2010 - 11:33pm

The big news is to make everyone think there is big news when really there isn't.

Wed, 09/29/2010 - 2:39am

I tell you Woods was coming back, I tell you Henley was coming back, I tell you Legault was coming back. You all say NO & SEE WHAT HAPPENED!!!!!!!!!! I will tell you NOW & all will not listen :(
I TELL NO MORE :( & you find out WHEN it happeneds

Wed, 09/29/2010 - 5:53am

Mightbite - please .. tell no more.. sounds like a good plan. No disrespect to your previous predictions but your teasing on the subject gets a bit much.. I do not doubt your sources at all. Just hate the way you deliver the message.

Wed, 09/29/2010 - 9:51am

Sounds like they're focused. Love it. Let's show the AA landscape how we play hockey in Fort Wayne. Go Ks!

Thu, 09/30/2010 - 4:49pm

Ok it was posted a big signing for the 29th. So where is it? Who is it? What is the website that was mentioned about Chaulk? I would like to see it. If he has only played one game, how many has that team played? Did it mention if he was hurt and thats why he wasn't playing? I know, too many questions.

Thu, 09/30/2010 - 8:20pm

KometKrazy, sorry I can't answer your questions because I haven't put in the time to look at the Italian teams but at the time that comment was posted they had only played one game so I'm guessing that's why Chaulker played one game at that time.
