Gary Graham went off on his team following a 5-4 overtime loss to Wheeling.
One name keeps showing up in connection with most every goal that the oppositiion scores. The fans are constantly screaming the it. Tuzzolino!!!! I hope that Graham does what is necessary and gets rid of this obvious problem.
I realize the +/- statistic is one that can be skewed. It depends on a lot of things. Still, on a team where the minuses are far more prevalent than the plusses, it surprises me that the Coach called out Lang and Vaskivuo.
Lang is only -2, Vaskivuo is +2. Compare those figures to Tuzzolino (-17) and Coyle, (even Marino at -9) and there has to be much more to the story.
Maybe David Franke will weigh in after tonight's game. The time is coming that he'll have to break his silence.
By the way, (only my opinion) I think Coyle is hampered by playing alongside Tuzzolino.
David, do what all your Komet fans have known for quite some time. It's time to part ways with Tuzzolino. No disgrace, it was a nice try. Your defense will instantly improve, your salary cap will instantly improve, and your fans' attitudes will instantly improve.
Komet fans have seen a lot of hockey over the years. They know what they like to see. Most aren't happy with what they've seen this year.
