Oh my. Condolences to the Chin family. I had the honor of working with her for a short period of time at the Dana Plant in Churubusco. I ate lunch with her everyday. She was a very nice lady. We talked alot about raising small children since my kids were smaller at that time.

On to the numbers, 2-11 against Rockford, Muskegon, and Danbury...

to add to that...The Komets only beat Rockford in that group 2 times..The Komets have never beaten Danbury. They are 0-6 against them lifetime. Muskegon has blown the Komets out just about everytime they have faced each other. Although the next time these 2 teams meet, it wont be a blowout. The Komets are much improved.

See my comment posted a couple of weeks ago. Komets are "Best of the Rest" but not able to compete with the top clubs. My prediction, Komets end up 5th overall (Muskegon, Rockford, K-Zoo, Danbury, Komets) and lose in the first round.

not at all komets related. but check out the stats for this goalie his last year in Juniors. The scary thing is, he got not one but THREE chances at the pro level afterwards!!!
http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php3?pid=00025865 and no folks, when you see his won-lost record, it was not a typo. That team was the worst excuse for a hockey team in the history of junior (or maybe any) level of hockey.
