Tailing the Komets

Talked to Bobby Phillips

He's still talking to the Komets, but mostly he's rehabbing his shoulder and would not be ready to play until November at the earliest. He's starting Nursing School on Monday.

Thanks for the update, Blake.

Good luck in school, Bobby! Hope the shoulder heals because we'd love to see you back in a Komets uniform!

Would love to see Bobby back in Orange and Black!

Bobby needs to go slow on this shoulder.Mightbite had surgury 15 months ago & is still not 100 % = more like 71%.

Relax about a "goal scorer" he will be here.

Glad to hear that Bobby is still in the mix. I'd love to see him back in orange and black. Get well, Bobby!

Mightbite, thanks for giving us a "heads up" that a "goal scorer" will be here. At the risk of sounding like a person who can never be satisfied ( especially before this player is even announced), the Komets need TWO goal scorers.

Whoever the Komets sign to address the "goal scorer" need, it looks as if this player will have to come from the "tweener" category and not be a veteran. By my count the Komets have already filled all their available "veteran" spots.

I know that it is possible for them to cut a veteran, but really, when did that ever happen? Additionally, why would a goal scoring veteran sign with a team knowing that a veteran spot would be cut during camp?

All things are possible, of course. I appreciate Mightbite's information on the goal scorer already being signed, yet I think that is only half of the task for the Komets. They need two. They don't apprear as if they will be veterans, and with that information you can eliminate a lot of unsigned and/or unannounced scorers.

When I did my "homework", that was the conclusion I came to.

Alan, I think there will probably be a veteran opening. I still feel in my gut that PC doesn't make team. IMO

Mango is a veteran
Smith is a Veteran

Veterans by my count:

Chaulk, Drouin, Thomas, Mangos, Smith, & Milam ( if you count his games played in Europe, which I believe do count when calculating totals).

You are allowed six and goaltenders are exempt.

The only leagues in europe that count are the elite leagues. Those do not include the english, italian, french dutch or any of the second leagues in germany, finland, sweden, czech, slokavia, russia and swiss.
