Tailing the Komets

Couple notes

From a Komets press release:

The Komets will hold the annual End of Season Party and Jersey Auction Tuesday, April 2, in the Appleseed Room of the Memorial Coliseum.  Doors open at 6:30pm and the jersey auction begins at 7pm.  Game worn player jerseys will be auctioned to the highest bidders.

Komets add Sparks to lineup—Forward Lindsay Sparks has been added to the Komet lineup.  Sparks, 21, completed four years of NCAA play with the University of Michigan this year.  The Oakville, Ontario native was a member of the Michigan Wolverines 2010 NCAA Champions during his rookie college season and followed with the 2010-11 NCAA regular season championship with the Wolverines.  Sparks has appeared in 83 regular season games during his four-year stint with Michigan scoring 17 goals and 35 points.  Sparks is expected to be in the lineup tonight when the Komets face Toledo at 7:30pm at the Memorial Coliseum.

Nothing asgainst this kid; but why cant the Komets give an ATO to a forward at least 6 feet tall???

How many do you think are out there that have not been drafted or plan to be drafted? Or are slower than me skating?

Enough to grab at the end of the season....

If they havent been drafted and are coming out of the OHL or NCAA, then they are not preparing to be drafted...  I could probably put a list together; but it may take me a day or two....that point it would be useless; but the point is, I could do it in a day or two.... 

David Toews was released a couple days ago...he was 5'10" or 6'0" tall....couldve claimed him....

Then how do the other 20+ teams get players that are bigger then 5 ft 9 in, Blake?  I am not trying to be a smart ### here. I am serious.

I totally understand, accept and agree with the frustration, but do you really think they aren't looking for it? I will definitely be asking about it tonight.

I can't remember, do season ticket holders get into the jersey auction for free?

They have in the past. Haven't heard that would be changing this year.

They also released Labardo. Maybe they needed a little room to squeeze the new guy in.

I was wondering when Martin St Louis shrunk wasnt he 6'2" I see that Corey Conicer of the Lightning is in the running for NHL rookie of the year, I think he was 6'0 and now that he is in the NHL he is 5'7: I know that no one and I mean NO ONE gets to go play for the Michigan team regardless of their size that cand do at least these two things, which I dont see everyone on the team as being great at SKATE AND STICK HANDLE>

I hope that when the GM scouts kids he keeps looking for these two qualitite first not the size of their sticks.
