Nice to see more people giving Chaulk his due! I know many around here thought he wouldn't make a difference on this team, just another washed up vet, but with Chaulk helping on the PK (along with the other standout TAB!), it was nice to hear Boucher say in his "star of the game" interview last week that the turn around was when Chaulk joined the team. "For how good he is on the ice, he's twice as good in the locker room."

They were actually 5-1-2 just before Chaulk arrived.

I bet the komets are glad Chaulk couldn't hack it in Europe.

Come on Super Fan....

The players knew he was on the way back to FW and I gotta beleive that was good for half of those wins....

Tab Lardner has been a hockey stud.

We get all these guys on a run toward the playoffs.....I can't see anyone beating us....

Curadeau, Lapointe, and Schrock......3rd Line???

That is unreal when you think about it.....and Curdy is making strides of late.....making he is healthy? Maybe not having to be the "man" helps too.

Chaulk deserves alot of credit for his leadership and the direction this team is going right now.

You can't deny that.

I'm not denying it. I'm also not giving him ALL the credit, either. A lot of guys have stepped up. Heck, without the goalies, they'd still be in last place.

Guys like Dan Lapointe and Dustin Molle have been tremendous additions, though they don't always score all the points. Lapointe has been amazing on faceoffs. I'll tell you somebody else who I think is playing tremendously is Bobby Phillips. He's become a stud on the blueline, and Frankie has been very consistent.

Sounds like we really have a team now where everyone contributes to the end result--nice advantage to have going into playoffs--an all star team! Go Komets!

This will likely be one of those years where they don't have any postseason all-star mention, either. They usually have great playoff runs when that happens like in 1973.

Excellent point on LaPointe. He's been an unsung part of the team that I've noticed too.

Phillips seems to be the guy who's been playing with a different partner from week to week. He's made adjustments and has played awesome. Bobby brings 100% effort everynight.

What is going on with the Russian?

He's basically on IR, waiting for a chance to come off if somebody gets hurt.
