Tailing the Komets

Tuesday's stories

A feature on David Hukalo is here, and a notebook talking about how the Memorial Coliseum crew takes care of the ice at this time of the year is here.

We'll also have a special four-page section on the finals coming Wednesday. Sleep? I don't need no stinking sleep!

Thanks for the great articles Blake, although I just finished David's scrapbook pages last night! haha. And sleep- that's an afterthought these days. Can't wait to see Wednesdays paper!

That was a cool story about the ice. I've asked the veterans around me countless times how thick the ice is and none of them knew. Now I'LL be the cool one with the coliseum knowledge! Don't tell anyone where I found it. I still think it's cool driving past the Coliseum sometimes on an 80-degree day and seeing ice piles in the parking lot.

Don't be sorry Blake! It was a great article, as all of yours are. Thanks for all your hard work! If you have anything special for the scrapbook, please email me. Thanks!

Quick question what are the plans for Legualt? Comes off IR tomorrow, but I figure they will put him on the 45 day IR. Now what would be the rule if he is on IR and the K's would win the Championship again, would be get his name on the cup or do you have to at least skate in one play-off game

Gets his name on the cup. It's on there from last year as is Maksim Shirokov. He also got a ring. I believe, he does not have to come off IR until someone else goes on. I also think, and I've told him this to his face, that he WILL play sometime in the finals. And he'll make a difference.

That is good to know thanks Blake. I believe in the NHL you have to skate in one play-off game. I know he has had the shoulder issue all season, but I guess he is on IR because of cap issues. Franke had talked about teams not being able to carry the limit because of money??

For anyone interested, two web sites might be fun:
http://entertainment.howstuffworks.com/ice-rink4.htm and http://www.exploratorium.edu/hockey/. The first explains a lot of what goes into making a sheet of ice, and the second is a whole set of pages on the science of hockey.
