Tailing the Komets

Boucher, Auger struggling through rehab, Komets season


Wed, 03/27/2013 - 10:08am

Looking forward to learn what the Komets do with Auger and Boucher. 

My quesion is , what would be the over/under  on how many fights Boucher would have with his own defense given that this years' defensemen played in front of him?  Maybe we'd have to ask Bertram, but my guess would be two.

Did I hear wrong or did the United States get only one shot on goal in their 0-0 tie with Mexico in soccer?  Mexico got nineteen.  Sounds oddly familiar, doesn't it?

I know that everyone is disappointed with the team.  All we have to do is wait until Christmas.  Oh shoot.  Christmas was three months ago.  Oh well, as they used to say on Saturday Night Live, "never mind".

Kind of an assine comment about Boucher and Bertram and personally I don't see the relevance or the need to even bring that up considering it was an article on the challenges and I'm sure the pain both Auger and Boucher have had to go through to try to work their way back.  I think Boucher has earned a ittle more respect than what you're giving him Alan.  All that comment serves to do is taint a good, positive article and bring more negativity to an already horrendous season on and off the ice.  Nice article Blake, and appreciate the update on these two guys.  I don't think Nick would have made a difference this season, but given the struggles this team has had scoring, I would guess Chris might have helped to some degree.  Difficult losing a first line player like that in the 4th game of the season

Ouch. That touched a nerve.

Good to hear that Nick has realistic expectations about returning next year. I think he'd be great in the role of backup/teacher. It's also nice that he stated it so we wouldn't have to spend the summer reading blog arguements about how he can still be the ECHL MVP.

Agree 100% with JM....

The word is 'asinine", Andy.  Just a little joke, that's all.  Didn't mean to turn your world upside down.

It was a good article and I'm glad both Auger and Boucher miss playing.  I still think and still believe that this defense would've frustrated the heck out of Boucher.

Fiar enough Alan, and please excuse me spelling error.  I agree our D would have frustrated him, as I'm sure it has frustrated most fans and I would imagine our goalies as well this season.  It's been a rough season to say the least
