Tailing the Komets

Saturday's stuff

Let's all dial it back a notch, please.

That was an unfortunate choice of words, and that post has been removed. And, yes, Wendy does catch more than her share around here. She's also pretty good at defending herself so more power to her. At least she sticks to hockey and away from the personal jabs.

One of the things I respect about people on the blog is that they almost always try to maintain class while posting. Unfortunately, some think being ``anonymous'' gives them the ability to say stuff they'd never say in person because they think it's funny. About 99 percent of the time, it's not.

Maybe I'll just have to start eliminating anything that approaches personal swipes and I'll probably have to err on the side of wiping out too much. Not how I'd like to spend my days.

Mike, I was posting those plus-minuses because they were the predominant stat from last night's game, just as I would have posted the positive stats if they would have been the major stats that jumped out at me from a game. That said, that group has been struggling mightily of late. Not sure why. Could be they are feeling more pressure to produce offensively since a lot of others are not. There are others on the team who are not getting any stats pro or con, which stand out just as much. P.C. and Guy are struggling and they would be the first to admit it.

Check out the stats for the last five games.

I think  you could make the argument that Frankie DeAngelis is a legitimate MVP candidate for the team. He's been the most consistent player all year, and when he's not in the lineup, it really shows.

Off to cover gymnastics.

Kind of eye poping

Frankie has been great all season, and he's been doing it kind of quietly too.

My wife kindly asks everyone to stop posting game used jerseys for me to buy...thanks!

Thanks to GM putting up the PC Mt.Dew jersey, I found a Chaulk jersey from the first army night and got it for less than $200!!!

HaHa...Here to help, Hoss

Hoss LOL , I think the Mirasty jerseys may be the last for me.

Good to know that if someone takes someone else's post in a way other than it was intended that it will be yanked. Maybe it's time to enable an application that will allow us to post a picture so everyone can keep up.

Komets were bound to hit a rough patch after playing so well over the past couple months.... I would rather them hit it now than right before or going into the playoffs...

Some fans are worried to death after suffering thru the 2010 portion of the schedule that those losing ways could come back now... May be a lil over reaction going on... Understandable after what we endured the first part of the season...

I wonder if a good amount of the Komets confidence or bravado accompanied Mirasty to the IR. You cant say enough about what having a truly legitamite enforcer on the bench does for a teams psyche. Players who's games depend alot on playing with a little edge in their game to be successful are free to play that style knowing there is backup, if needed.

Mirasty going on IR couldnt have come at a more inopportune time... Schrock hurts his hand and Cescon suffers his second concussion (if rumors prove to be true). Open season the next few games for the Komets top players with all the muscle out of the lineup... K's could go thru ALOT of ice over the next week... Phillips may need to channel a lil of his dad into his game over the next few games...

With that being said, the last time people thought the K's had thier backs up against the wall (and gave them ready made excuses), they came out flying and thouroughly dominated thier opponent. Lets hope we see that again tonight... Go K's!

Hoss...I'm sure the OT will start back up before summer. When it starts back up,it will be the off season for hockey so the jerseys will be cheaper. Patients my man! lol

Blake, top notch. That is an excellent recap of what has been happening. I should have waited for you to put things in perspective.
You have identified a big problem. With some guys struggling to score, if a team can shut down the Tab trio then we are in trouble. Sorry Wendy.

Yeah, you're right. There is no way to defend someone posting, or allowing, inappropriate language or even an "unfortunate choice of words."

I think you will need to be vigilant about it, though. I remember a while back someone posting about an invitation ( or something like that ) to join them in their caboose. That sure got a lot of reaction ( even from you, Blake) although everybody knew what context it was meant in.

Neither one was "proper" and the kidding for both went on the risque side.

Having high standards is a feat to be proud of, having low standards is a weakness to be improved upon, but having double standards is the worst of all three.

Let's help Blake keep his standards high.

Hit Somebody!!!

Good to see everyone is riding in now on their High Horses......

Don't they always?

Hit Somebody!!!

Glad i missed all this crap. Take it that somone was being a moran.

Sun, 03/06/2011 - 11:04pm

Not really, someone replied to a message and others took it sexually despite that not being the way it was intended so because others had their minds in the gutter it got yanked...
