Talked with David Franke today on his way to Kalamazoo to watch the ECHL Riley Cup Finals.
* The Komets are not talking with the Red Wings about an affiliation or anything else.
* They will be talking to Columbus again in the next few weeks.
* The Komets are using a scouting service to help them look at upcoming rookies.
* They have not talked to Todd Robinson, but expect to in the future. He expects Robinson to wait awhile before si
* They are probably looking at bringing one goaltender back, mostly because they need to find one for the future, not because they have any problems with Kevin Reiter or Nick Boucher.
* He said he believes Derek Patrosso and Tab Lardner are leaning 90 percent toward retirement.
* Colin Chaulk will start working for the club June 1 to get training in marketing, sales, player promotions and recruiting.
* The Komets are planning on using a sleeper bus more next season as they'll probably play a more diverse schedule.
* They plan on bringing 35 or so players to training camp.
* Likely won't start signing any new players until June, or at least announcing them.
That's about it. Nothing earth-shaking. Back to tennis results.
