Tailing the Komets

Roster moves

P.C. has been placed on the 10-day injured reserve with tendonitis in his knee.

``It's been botheirng him and we're erring on the side of cautoin,'' Komets general manager David Franke said. ``We're trying to rest him before the playoffs.''

That also allows Sean O'Connor to be activated from IR.

The Komets also released defenseman Danko Mironovic. He'll be on CHL waivers for 24 hours.

``It's always tough when you have to say goodbye to somebody who has been part of a couple of championshps with you,'' Franke said. ``We just have a too many defensemen right now. Hopeuflly he'll end up somewhere in the league I think there are a are a couple of teams that are interested.''

Matt Krug will arrive in town late tonight and will practice and play tomorrow.

What was the problem with Danko? Why make him do the IR Shuffle. Don't tell us "We have too many defenseman right now" then turn around and sign another defensman (Matt Krug) who brings 0 championships and six freaking points!

I will miss Danko. He never took a shift off much less a night.

1st..Take the emotion out of it, it's a business.

2nd..With the addition of Krug we have too many dmen and management feels that Krug's defensive skills are better so the move is made. The goal is to win and you want the best lineup possible out there..

3rd..Best of luck Danks

Y didnt we get rid of warner?

Tue, 03/22/2011 - 1:06pm

Probably because Warner can also play forward if they get in a pinch

Tue, 03/22/2011 - 1:12pm

Very diplomatic response, GM...lol

Tue, 03/22/2011 - 1:13pm

I will say that I am stunned that Drouin is going on the IR.... I wouldnt mind seeing Dupuis getting a rest as well...

It's about time Danko got let go, he never belonged in this league, sad to see him sent so late in the season, but it was much needed

kometswin, its about rest for the playoff's nothing more. Does it make you feel better jumping the gun on here and calling people names? I hope it does because it really only makes you look foolish.

Just a "what if" Krug & Ratchuk gets called up to the AHL??????

Tue, 03/22/2011 - 3:17pm

It would be a HUGE if because they can only get called up to the AHL in an emergency situation

Tendonitis? At his age I thought he might have Fred Sanford "arthur itis"

Uh oh....wait a minute.. he is a year younger than me!

Grip it and rip it

Great move for the Ks. Ratchuk is off the AHL active roster it you check. Keep Warner off the ice and we just might do ok now.

Tue, 03/22/2011 - 5:21pm

You know what "that guy says" you do not know a good player when you see one. Danko always gave 100% or more. There are other players that should have gone say warner. I hope he goes to another team in the CHL and gives us a headache. Like all the other ones that we let go.

Nicely said, Marie!!!!

Good luck Danko! Thanks for helping us to the championships!
