Tailing the Komets

Two stories today

The first is about Colin Chaulk and the work he's doing teaching at McMillen Park Ice Arena. The second, most of which you already know about, is about Brad MacMillan's feelings on his current situation.

It always seems strange when someone says the referee "had to make the call". There is no such thing as "had to make the call". The referee can do whatever in his judgement he wants at any time. If he felt there was no intent, then he does not "have to make" that call. We all know that every official wants to show everyone that he knows the rules and wants to make these silly calls. The truth is that no one is impressed. There was no intent, there was no adverse result, there should have been no call. End of story.

It's also on the K's WEB site. Will join the team in January.

At only 5'10" and 175lbs I wonder how he will do against all the over 6' over 200 lb tough guys around the league? ;-)

Whoooooo freaking hoooooo !!!!! I still think we need to get someone Bert's size who does more than hug's people. He is a waisted spot if you ask me.

Another 5 foot fighter! OMG! THANK YOU SO SO MUCH Mr. Franke! Really "Santa Arrives Early" is the title of the press release? Isn't that a lot of hype for a forward that was 9th out of 12 forwards in goal scoring in 07-08? For a guy that hasn't played pro hockey in a year? For a guy who pouted when he wasn't allowed to fight in the playoffs?

I suppose I'm out of line but Woods isn't going to be the differnce as an enforcer, and while he plays chippy (just like Schrock and Mac) he doesn't light the lamp enough to make a major contribution on offense..

At least this will quiet the Woods fans for a bit. If he's as great as they all seem to think he is, our problems are solved. However, I'm going to have to agree with JM on this one. I really wasn't ever overly impressed with him during his first stint here. Maybe he'll be better this time around? I guess it's cool he is coming back but I was hoping for a bit more in the size department. I'm one of those spoiled Komets fans who are never happy apparently ;)

This could get interesting. Now the guessing and second guessing starts. The way things are going maybe he and Mac can alternate on suspensions.

I truly hope this works out and even though I would have waited a bit to see what happens with our scoring (although where would they find a sniper now?) Mitch is someone they've wanted all along.

Gotta start thinking of a real tough line combination and a name for them ala the Ice Patrol. Mighty Mites?
