Tailing the Komets

Asked Al Sims.... UPDATED

About Corey Elkins possibly going to play in Finland, and he said he hadn't heard anything about it and doubts the validity. 1. Corey is under contract to Anaheim and they'd have to release him from it for him to go, and the Ducks are a little busy right now; 2. Would he risk playing in two ECHL games if he was leaving? Anyway, that's what the coach said.

Komets General Manager David Franke said, ``That's something that could possibly happen for him, but at this point and time he is still proparty of Anaheim and he's assigned here.''

Don't be shocked if Elkins is recalled to Norfolk early next week. The Admirals have to be impressed with what he's done so far.

Just checked and still shows as a confirmed transfer.  Who knows... 

Have a question - if the NHL settles (still doubtful) and there is an influx of NHL players, that will desimate the Europeon League.  They will be looking for players to fill their roster.  Wll players from the USA/Canada head over to fill the void?  What affect will this have on our league?

I would guess so since the money will be significantly better than what they would be making here in the minors. They can make three or four times as much.

NHL settlement could drastically change the entire ECHL. Some teams, like Cincicnnati could lose 8-9 players potentially because the Cyclones are using two affiliations. Komets could lose from three-to-five players. It really depends on how many AHL players go to NHL training camps which would only last a week. Will the NHL teams want to mess around with many extra bodies?

I wouldn't expect to see him after Sunday's game. He will get called up for sure.
