Tailing the Komets

Never-ending saga

Daniel Maggio has been released from his three-game tryout with Bridgeport. The Sound Tigers are either going to fly him out tonight or fly him into Evansville tomorrow so he can play. Luca Caputi is also going to play tomorrow, but now Dan Nycholat has the flu. Komets may play with nine forwards and six defensemen.


``We may know more about the players at Norfolk soon,'' General Manager David Franke said. ``They could be coming back in time for the weekend, but I don't know if it's going to be our guys or a combination of guys. I think it will get better by the weekend.''

Franke said the Komets have no interest in signing former Komets defenseman T.J. Miller or forward Matt Syroczynski.

I wouldn't be shocked if Maggio got a call up from another AHL team for the weekend. At this point, nothing should be surprising.

We attended the two games in Estero this weekend between Florida and Toledo. For what it is worth, Matt S. just glided around. Giving him the benefit of the doubt, we figured that he was way out of shape.

Thorne, on the other hand, played very well. He had an assist 23 seconds into Friday's game and a goal Saturday.

Toledo was a far better team but still lost all three last week to Florida.

I knew we would see a bunch of movment once the NHL lockout ended but... holy crap this is getting ridiculous. Good luck to all the guys on call-up and welcome back to anyone who is sent back. Get well soon Dan N and Colin C! Hopefully things will stabilize in a couple weeks once the NHL gets going and Europe shakes things out.

No interest at all in Miller or Syro? Right now we should have interest in anyone who is over 6 feet tall especially forwards, Syro easily could replace Brittain with his power forward type style plus he could replace Klotz on the power play and stand in front of the net, I'm really surprised.

I would not be surprised at all if Cousineau gets recalled. I just saw Fredrik Anderson was recalled to Anaheim today

Anderson got called up but Anaheim signed another goaltender and sent him to Norfolk so we should keep Marco
