Tailing the Komets

Tough talk

The Komets are still very upset about Saturday's altercations. No one seems to be upset with the suspensions the league handed down, but they are mad that Jason Lawmaster didn't receive any suspension.

“There's a lot of stuff I want to stay to you that you obviously can't put in the paper,” Komets center Leo Thomas said. “I wanted to jump off the bench and go after Lawmaster. I think everybody did. I don't know Lawmaster personally, but I've played against him and he's usually not like that. If I had done what I wanted to, I'd have probably been suspended for 15 games.”

Konstantin Shafranov is fine and has not missed any practice time since the incident. He skated like normal in practice today, spending a lot of time joking with teammates.

“It's embarrassing,” Komets center Colin Chaulk said. “I think it makes our league look bush league. I think they gave the right suspensions to Mac and Big Snake, but I think Lawmaster should have gotten something.

“I don't know if it's over. I understand the old policing of the game, you don't want to hit their scorers and tough guys are supposed to fight tough guys, but I don't know if it's warranted to send your whole bench out.”

“As for going back after them, yeah, we can do that, but it's just going to be a continuous thing, so is that what we're supposed to do?” Komets veteran Blair Stayzer said. “Am I supposed to jump (Todd) Robinson, and then the next game Lawmaster jumps Chaulk, and the next game I jump Bouchard? We can keep doing this all

It's not just Komet players that are mad at Lawmaster for his stunt...He WILL get whats coming to him from across the league

I absolutely LOVE Stayzer's comments!

I have to admit that I'm surprised Lawmaster did what he did, even assuming he was told to do it. It's times like that in which character is the bottom line, and clearly he has none.

Stayzer sure is classier than i gave him credit for when the ks picked him up. I am definitely liking the guy. (He might be my sec fav pick up next to Schrocky Balboa!)

All right! SEC215 is a fun section to sit in....I was there on Halloween in between Gene Simmons and Nemo. Talk about a star-studded row....

Now this is what I was waiting to hear....this is the kind of response that I was looking for. Lawmaster is going to have to pay the pieper.....several of them. Anyone want to bet that he is either on the IR or a healthy scratch when we play him the rest of the season. If he is, then lets take down Bouchard. Prison Rules are in full affect!!!

I am loving this. Thomas' remarks were classic.

The league will phone both team offices before the next couple games these two teams play and tell them that league officials will be there and added scrutiny will be placed on these games..... They will hint like crazy that stiff fines/suspensions will be handed out if things go overboard....

Puhleese with the Bush League talk. This stuff happens every now and then in ALL leagues. Save the "We're better than this" talk. Go to you tube and search NHL brawl. You don't even have to go back to the 70's and 80's to find line brawls of all kinds. Anyone remember Philly and Ottawa not so long ago? It happens no matter what level you play at. If it happened every week then we'd have a problem. Every now and then, so what. It's what makes the game interesting in that it COULD happen at any time.
