Tailing the Komets

Joseph, to me, has a point. The Komets really have not had a back up that I think they could honestly compete with St. Pierre for the starting position. Reiter I think would have been that person. Now the Komets will have to settle on a goalie to play the odd game.

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 9:27am

Read Ft Wayne.com. Bingham says that Frenchy is the number 1 goalie

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 9:33am

ok I guess i am wrong and you are right. just remember come season opener what i have said.

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 9:38am

Hobo-unless St. Pierre gets during during camp, I doubt that anyone will beat him out of the number one job. St. Pierre would have to completly tank camp and I doubt that's going to happen. I can see where he might think he has no competion and therefore not push himself, but he's the number one goalie. The K's also won;t waste another vet spot on a goaltender either so the back up will either have to be a tweener or a rookie and I bet it's a rookie.

Sorry that should say ...unless St. Pierre gets hurt during Camp.

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 10:11am

ok st. pierre is the #1 goalie...

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 10:12am

...for now

Who really has a good goalie combo in the UHL? Off the top of my head I can't think of anyone. Almost always a UHL team has a good goalie and a backup rookie just to fill in the mandatory rookie quo. Just something to think about.

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 10:29am

When Missiouri had Tapp and Reiter they were pretty good. The cup champions had a good rookie in Martin and Reyneart. I'm not saying the Komets can't find a good goaltender, I'm saying I think it will be tough to sign one know who they have to sit behind.

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 10:47am

I gotta stop arguing so much. It's not even September and my blood pressure is up.

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 11:02am

didnt you argue with me before about a certain ex-captain, greg?

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 11:06am

probably, he hasn't been on the top of my favorite list for awhile.

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 11:09am

Masters won't be back and it has nothing to do with Frenchy. That's all I'm going to say about it so don't ask.

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 11:12am

oh blake tell us why please please please....i'm joking...what does anybody know about this morency guy i heard about on the other blog??? anything blake?

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 11:16am

Morency, as I recall,is a pretty tough character that has played in the UHL. Unlike the "goon" he can actually skate a regular shift, but isn't afraid to throw down when needed.

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 11:19am

any idea where these people are gettin the ideas about him signing here?

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 11:20am

He played for Bingham I think in the ECHL.

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 11:41am

Better find a quality backup goalie. Better yet....find 4 or 5. With the Komet goalies being ran like pilons on a freeway....we might need a few this season.

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 11:59am

Morency and Bingham were in Wheeling together at one time. I only remember him playing against us (when in Flint) once and he was going after everyone that night. He can certainly scrap.

Let me tell you what I DO remember about Masters....I remember him making gestures at his defence when he let goals in. I could be wrong at what those gestures were but they looked like a guy who was blaming everyone but himself. If this is the case......

Joseph was not being negative. He was being realistic. The BEST backup the last few years was Cory Campbell who would have had a much more succesful career had he stayed healthy.

So who has HOCKEY NEWS to give to ME?

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 12:57pm

Greg, you're right about the Tapp/Reiter combo. If I remember correctly Reiter was a rookie at the time and turned out to be a good goalie. And even though I defend St. Pierre alot, don't get me wrong. I would have rather brought in someone who I think is still growing (Reiter) and not at a potential peak in a career. I do think that St. Pierre can win a cup for Ft Wayne however.
Tony-of all the back ups named thus far, Cory Campbell is my favorite choice. I would however like to see the Komets take a chance on a rookie potential especially if this would be Frenchy's last year here.

DNL I think sadly Cory may be at the end of his competitive career. He just can't stay healthy. Sad because even back in his days with the Spitfires, nobody worked harder. He will make a good goaltending instructor one day if he is interested.

Hockey News....er....OHIC Warrior update.

Komet's announce today that they have traded KOMET WARRIOR to the city of Chicago for Steve Bartman.

Good Riddens....

Please...no ex-Komet backup goalie retreads. Lets bring in some fresh blood and take our chances. Heck, maybe they will get lucky and find a rookie that works out to be an All-Star and we can make Frenchy the back-up that plays every 20th game or so. Works for me.

Dang Hit!! I wanted to yell BRING BACK PAT MAZZOLI!!! You ruined my fun!

Please...no more Pokey sightings...I can't live through another season of that kind of crap.

Tue, 08/22/2006 - 3:01pm

Hit, wasn't that very painful for you to mention Pokey Reddick? I think that chapter in Komet Lore and Legend is safely tucked away in the past.....Tony, I don't want to appear totally ignorant, but who is Pat Mazzol?

Pat Mazolli was a backup goalie on that awful mid 90's team.
