Tailing the Komets

Syro not coming back yet

I think he's going to stay with them through the weekend. They have a couple of games in Wilkes-Barre and one in Syracuse and they want him to go on the trip for those games. I talked to him yeterdsay and that's the latest. I think he'd like to play a little but more but he doesn't want to rock the boat.

SUBHEAD: Roster report

The Komets are now not expecting to have Matt Syroczynski back from Norfolk of the American Hockey League until next week. Syroczynski played two games last week with the Admirals, getting one shot on goal and two penalty minutes while going minus-2. The Admirals play at Wilkes Barre-Scranton on Friday and at Syracuse on Saturday.

Thanks for the update on Syroczynski. I was kind of hoping the first report was true about him getting back in time for Friday's game. The next 12 days or so is going to be interesting as it pertains to the roster and player movement. I'm not sure which "road" the K's will travel with their roster decisions. The mess with Muskegon and MacMillans suspension may have them thinking about bringing in another "tough guy." No matter what decision they make it will mean that a pretty good player (or players) will be gone. Just my opinion here....but it sure seems refreshing to be posting something different than the mess from Saturday night.

Good luck to Syro. I hope he does well for them.

We don't need another fighter. I think the Komets are tough enough. Besides if you know anything about Al he is not going just bring in a goon. The guy has to be able to skate as well. Henley is an example of that. The Lawmasters and Big Snakes could never skate in Fort Wayne because they are one dimensional players who can't skate. They don't add anything to the team. Mac can be an effective winger (i.e. last years Turner Cup) and does finish his checks.

Allowing for the fact that a minor league hockey roster is really never "settled," the path the Komets choose to take is going to be interesting. I guess that I, too, believe the K's will not go after another "tough guy". Over the past couple of weeks I have posted that the K's seem to be missing "something." I have noted that special teams sure seemed like they needed improvement ( especially the power play) and was real interested in the Journal/Gazette article this morning. The players on that 1st power play line are all real good, yet they have just not produced. I wish that they would shoot and "crash" the net a little more instead of looking for that "perfect" pass. You know, I think what would really help is if they would just play more games. The schedule is kind of rediculous with the amount of offdays in the beginning of the season. Once the roster is kind of stable and they can get into a "rhythm" I feel the team will take off.
