Is that Kevin McClelland the same Kevin that played for the K's way back when?

Just wanted to take a moment to wish Andrea a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Fri, 10/15/2010 - 11:39am

Thanks for the reminder Alan. Happy Birthday to Andrea....a great Komet Hockey fan.
Also, I really appreciate all of the Great articles and info leading into opening night. I really enjoyed reading the info regarding all of the other CHL teams. Great job.

Hey Blake, I have a question for you.

I'm sure you remember John Mori, the fine young forward who played a large part in Flint's success last year. Two days ago he was released from the Reading Royals of the ECHL.

My question is this, have the Komets made any attempt to contact him?

Early season rosters are fluid and Mori would fit well into the Komets plans as a "developmental player", a forward who can put the puck in the net, and as a skilled player.

I know that the K's are expecting two players from Springfield but if I were GM I would always be trying to make my team better. Mori would acccomplish that. I understand there would be even more tough decisions if he were here but that is what David Franke gets paid to do.

Your thoughts, Blake?

A shout out to Jack. Looking forward to speaking with you tomorrow night. (Remember Jack, it doesn't matter if the K's win tomorrow because you can always count on them getting hot after Christmas, right?) LOL!

Thank you for the birthday wishes Alan and Jack. I will see you both tomorrow at the game! GO KOMETS!!!

They couldn't afford John Mori under the salary cap at this point.

Blake - What's wrong w/Cianfrini? Is he hurt or just some sort of roster move that they need to do keep him?

Cianfrini has a strained MCL.

About 1,200 tickets left.

Bertram, Shafranov and Hukalo will be there to get their rings.

Hey Blake since your the man with all the news, do you have any insight to what the third jersey looks like this year. It has been 4 years since I last bought a jersey and wondering if the new one is worth saving up for. Thanks in advance

No way I'd spoil that here. C'mon, there has to be some mystery to tomorrow night.

I want to thank the bloggers who also put alot of heart into this blog! Cant wait to tailgate!

They will probably charge you for 2 parking spots

It's alright Blake. I went to Komet Kuarters this morning and cheated. They look sharp but i'm not a big fan of the draw string.

Are they selling the new jersey at the game tonight? Anyone know?

Sat, 10/16/2010 - 1:44pm

I imagine they will have them at the souvenir stand. They had them at KK for $109.00. Authientic for $169.00

Was there any big difference between authentic and replica???

Sat, 10/16/2010 - 2:03pm


An authentic jersey is a game weight, or pro grade jersey. It has reinforced stitching, made with a heavier weight material, and has the tie down strap on the inside. It is essentially the same type as the players wear.

Thanks Bob....I know the general difference between the Authentic and Replica jerseys....I was wondering if there was any visual advantage of spending the extra money....in the past several years, they haven't even offered up the Authentic ones, that I have saw. It has been basically Replica ones.

I am headed to Komet kuarters now...LOL

Thanks Bob and Bauer.

The visual difference I could'nt really comment on....just the price difference which right now is sort of not in the budget. I've spent more on bills and my hot rod the last few years instead of hockey stuff.....:(
