Tailing the Komets

Weird goal

The Komets trail 2-1 after two periods on a long goal from just inside the red line by Gwinnett's Brenden Walker on Fort Wayne goaltender Ben Meisner. Komets have had some scoring chances, but have not been able to score.

I feel that we should of won 4 - 2 but the great goaltending on Gwinnets part denied that.

First time poster. 40 year Komet fan. I finally made to games this weekend. I have one thing to say. BORING. What a waste of money. $76 for 4 seats, drinks and parking. The games sucked- No hitting, crowd not into the game. Most people just sitting in their seats looing at their phones. When they hired Graham I thought Chaulk got screwed. We need Colin here. I think he could turn this mess around. Graham is in over his head. Players do not want to play for him. This once proud franchise is now a joke. The owners do not know how to compete in a real league. Unlike the IHL2 they do not control the other teams to keep their money machine going. I know I WILL NOT be going to another Komet games until changes are made.

Although obviously lacking talent, it has become painfully obvious that the team has given up. Hiring Graham and honestly expecting success was an error in judgement that needs to be recognized and acted upon. The longer management ignores this reality the greater the problem becomes.
This franchise, its fans and the community are seeing the demise of one the city's greatest assets.
I implore you Franke family to act before this jewel loses its luster.

Well said, Hit the Post!!! I was very unhappy when he was hired but have kept quiet since. It is, however, time to change coaches. We basically have moved half the team or more with the results being the same hockey. I have grown weary of everytime we have traded a player or they have quit or wanted treaded we hear the same thing.  Ït just wasn't a good fit."  Half the team? Who hired these guys? Were they vetted properly? If so, by whom?  There is just one common denominator here and we all know it is Coach Graham. I hate to see anyone lose their job for goodness sake. It would be very difficult on a family for sure. However, there are several thousand ticket holders that are suffering now too. I doubt a coaching change will bring instant success . But the old Chinese proverb applies here. Ëven a journey of a thousand miles must begin with the first step."I think it is time to move forward now or it may be irreversable, not just this year but in years to come.

Well, it was a slow, lackluster game.....only Marino, Auger and the new goalie were giving a continuous effort.  Wow, really showed them playing down to their opponents level.  Have to agree that there needs to be some changes made....not sure about where you start...more than 1/4 of the way in.

Still do not know if changing mgmt of team will suffice.

I agree we need a choaching change now and I was a Grham supporter. But without a real GM with ties to the NHL things will stay the same. He is the guy who hired the coach and signed the players. With this GM who would want to play here next year?

After watching Sunday's game I have come to the realization that 99% of this team does not have any confidence. They are slow and sloppy in about every catagory. The big defensman do not hit, only the little guys hit once in awhile. They won't even fight to try and get any emotion flowing.  As far as I can tell this team is dead on the ice. Diffinatly not worth the high prices they charge.
