The Komets are interested in two or three San Francisco players, but so are several teams. He declined to name the players.
As for Scott Fleming getting called up, Franke said he's happy for Fleming, but it puts the Komets in a bind.
``We're open to every team in the AHL just like everyone else is. To not have an affiliation with these people and they have other players in the league... It's great for the player but it stings for us. They have players in the ECHL they could call up, but we really have no recourse. We just have to persevere without him and see if we can hook up with some other people.''
The Komets do not even receive a development fee when an AHL team signs one of their players.
Once again, ECHL fans are not the priority of the ECHL. Serving the AHL is.
