Tailing the Komets

Single game tickets

Iceboi was wanting to know last week. They go on sale Sept. 29. Komets President Michael Franke said the team is currently at about 3,400 season ticket holders, which is a little bit ahead of where the team was last year. That's amazing considering the economy and the gas prices.

Have they said how many orders they got after they named Bingham coach, after proving they were after a different syle from the last regime ????

I gave up my season tickets last year after 15 years. When Puhalski left I reconsidered. When Bingham signed I renewed! Give me an entertaining team I'm be there. Hope Chicago knows what it's in for!

Speaking of Chicago...does anyone have a good reason to believe it will work there?

NHL, AHL, UHL..... I guess they are trying to tap into all the income levels....lol

Yes but the Komets almost outdrew the Hawks last year lol. I am not sure how their AHL team did and I know that it can take 2 hours to get from one end of town to the other so there is room for multiple teams but I am just not sure if a 3rd tier hockey team will do well in a city that size. traditionally AA hockey does not do well in major market cities.

Yet another brilliant decision by our fearless leader, Dickie Boy Brosal. I am sure that Puhulski will get everyone in Chicago so excited with his wonderful personality and character. He was the perfect choice to energize a new franchise in a market that has thousands of other options for entertainment. HMMMM....should I go to the Bulls game....or watch GQ Cardboard Cutouts team bore the other team to death?

Sweet i'll have to pick my tickets up on the 30th!

actually the economy is rather good right now despite the high gas prices. when it comes to sports i dont think alot of people worry about what they spend cause its a great way to get rid of stress and of course during the last few years it was agreat place to go to get a nap!

Bad economy?? What country are you living in Blake?

Wed, 09/20/2006 - 3:25am

So we can pick up our season tickets on the 30th? I hadn't heard that.

I would say Tony is look at Toronto and the area. You have the Leafs, the Marlies, then you have the Bulldogs in Hamilton, and I don't know how many junior teams in the area. If Chicago is even half as hockey crazed as Toronto I think they can do it. Unlike some of the other cites it would provide other attractions to make a weekend out of it if possible.

Wait for the letter from the K's...that will give you the date. IndyKomet was talking about regular season tickets I think.

Most fans had tired of the Chief regime. Most games were lackadaisical at best featuring non-physical play. While I can say that Chief's teams did their share of winning, they certainly did not peak interest in getting fans to keep coming back with their little intensity. This just goes to show you that fans will come if they are entertained with hard hitting hockey. Not too hard understand....

Greg, the bulldogs get decent support. Hamilton in many ways is the Anti Toronto. It is a city like Pittsburgh, an old hard working steel town that is cleaning up the coal stains and trying (and doing a good job of it) to come into the 21st century in terms of technological companies. The people of Hamilton support anything that is NOT Toronto lol.
The Marlies did not draw as well as they thought they would considering these were Leafs prospects playing. The Majors draw horribly most nights.
There are people that say that Toronto is NOT a good hockey town. It is a good Leafs town. While I don't think it is that extreme, there may be something to that.

FYI-Tommy Lawson cut from the Chicago Blackhawks training camp.

And Jeff Petruic signed with Quad City

I heard Icy made an appearance at the Bluffton Street Fair last night....

Wed, 09/20/2006 - 6:22pm

Did they have port-a-pit chicken?

Wed, 09/20/2006 - 7:48pm

Thanks for posting when they would be released Blake!

Wed, 09/20/2006 - 7:53pm

De nada

I wasn't at the parade, but my friend told me that Icy was in it. I'm going tomorrow finally to check everything out at Street Fair. Mhmm....I love fair food! :)
