I asked coach Al Sims why they've been playing one man short lately.
``We can't get guys in. We've called for players. It has to be an American player, and not many teams have American players still on their roster. We have five vets, so Henley had to sit. It's been a lot of reasons.''
Why an American player?
``Because of immigration. If a guys has a P1 he has to go back into Candada, and it's a lot of paperwork (and it takes a while). Most of the guys we've called up in the past are up already. It's one of those things. The guys are coming back next week with Hoban and Dunbar, and then it's just a matter of getting a defenseman.''
The Komets are talking with Norfolk about getting Nick Schaus back. He's just been a healthy scratch of late.
