Tailing the Komets

On the way home

Sorry, didn't have internet access in Muskegon. I've got some pictures of the Stayzer-Lawmaster fight I'll post when I get home. It was a draw, and both gave a good account of themselves. Pretty good game, too. Komets held Lumberjacks to 16 shots on goal in Muskegon and lost. They must have had 10 shots that missed a foot wide or a foot high and then David Hukalo's last-second chance hit the crossbar.

Too many set-up guys and not enough finishers right now. Give Whitehead credit for playing despite a bad knee. The kid showed some guts. You couldn't even tell Huk had missed any time at all.

They need to mix up the lines, but I'm not sure how. Give it a shot, Hit.

Can you believe the Komets are playing this well defensively with four rookie defensemen? They could be one person away from being dominating. Syroczynski could be that guy, so you don't want to panic and try to make a bunch of moves to get more scoring right this second. He could be the final piece.

Chaulk, O'Connor, Syroczynski
Thomas, Hukalo, Drouin
Klempa, Varone, Schrock
MacMillan (SUSP) Warner

Guy & Phillips
Rodger & Bertram
Woodard & DeAngelis

But you still have Stayzer, Mironovic, and Whitehead

Chaulk has to center a line with 2 younger talented players. He can get them both the puck....I almost put either Hukalo or Thomas on the 3rd line, not becuase they are 3rd liners, but just to spread the talent evenly between the lines and add a veteran to that 3rd line.

I could see this working:
Chaulk, O'Conner, Syroczynski
Hukalo, Klempa, Drouin
Thomas, Varone, Schrock or Mac.

That would make for 3 awesome lines that would cause lots of trouble for our opponents.

Oh I forgot Shaf.....holy crap this is tough. 20 guys can be kept on the active roster. MacMillan is still on that active roster being suspended. 3 guys will have to go when it is all said and done. Tough decisions.

David Franke said so far he doesn't have a broken jaw or anything like that, but he's had a bum wrist for a while and this will give him extra time to rest that. Plus, they need a roster spot.

I thought both teams played pretty well tonight. It was a very defensive game from both sides, and there was some hitting. The goalies made saves when they had to, and Haun had no chance on the two Muskegon goals.
