Tailing the Komets

Hey, JR

Tell me you didn't see those two dogging it in the second period tonight? On the Cyclones' goal and with about a minute left in the period on a great Cincinnati scoring chance, they both hadn't even crossed the Cincinnati blue line when the Cyclones were crossing the Fort Wayne blueline. Led to great Cincinnati scoring chances, and they cashed on one. Just bush.

wow! looks like the offensive studs had a hard time playing defense tonight. i think plus -minus is a bigger stat than most think because great defense only shows up in that statistical category. they better learn to play defense or their stay here may be longer than anticipated.

It's baltantly obvious.  They play hard one way.  They have exceptional offensive skill; no debating that.  And I'm sure they can play defense-but their hearts don't seem in it. Let's hope that changes.

These kids are here for a reason. If they didn't have anything to work on they would be in the AHL right now. If you're going to single these guys out you should also call out the familiar faces who are missing assignments, pinching too soon, missing wide open nets, not agitating, not hitting, and just plain sucking.

Yes, I did notice a few times when they were behind the play...and yes, a couple were right after they had put extended pressure on Cincy in the offensive zone.

Did you notice the 2 times Lasch made excellent defensive plays that thwarted great offensive chances for the Cyclones?  Did you notice the numerous bad pinches by Maggio that led directly to scoring chances for the Cyclones?  Did you notice the multiple times that Henley left guys untouched around the goal crease?  Did you notice all the times that the forwards had to be below the faceoff circles to help the defense?  Did you notice that the K's slipped back into that little contact, perimeter style of play? 

Did you notice the entire team pretty much stunk last night???

Right now, the Norfolk players (and the offense they are providing) are the ONLY reason we are winning any games.  Period.

This is developmental hockey folks and our first year in a new league....  Get used to it because if you dont, your going to be miserable. 

Blake, why are you so hell-bent on blaming all the Komets woes right now on the Norfolk players?  It is just ridiculous, IMO.
