Tailing the Komets

Saturday in Florida

Let's start the conversation here.

Interesting to see if the Komets continue getting stronger throughout this series.

The Komets will finish 7th in the conference and make the playoffs.

I could explain it better, but I'd need charts, and graphs, and an easel.

Sat, 02/22/2014 - 4:55pm

I guess I don't understand the meaning of "getting stronger this series"?

But...I'm wondering what other people think they would do if they were the GM.  Would they stand pat.  If not, then what moves would you be looking to make?

Sat, 02/22/2014 - 5:32pm

Still wondering why Martine is not playing instead of Gates. I also still wish we would have resigned Rizk idk why he has not been playing with Greenville lately but still on their roster. Need the win tonight and many more.

Sat, 02/22/2014 - 5:34pm

It should mean, playing a full 60 minutes of hockey, stop the turn overs, stop giving up odd man rushes, get the power play working better, and shoot the puck right away instead of waiting and letting the defense and goalie get set up to block it or make a easy save. If they do all the above tonight, we can get another 2 points!!  Lets Go Komets!!!!!

Well, Alan, I'll try to explain it to you. Most people would consider losing the first game and winning the second in overtime an improvement. Maybe winning in reguulation might be considered even more of an improvement?

Maybe instead of saying what they need for the 2,547th time, which we already know by heart and all agree on, maybe you could come up with an idea where they could look for what you think they need? That would probably be much more productive.

Leon, what horse should I pick in the 3 rd race at santa anita tomorrow?

Blake Sebring
Sat, 02/22/2014 - 7:10pm

Meisner starts again, and the same referee as last night as well.

Wow, Floriday has played only 11 home games so far? Can you imagine trying to sell season tickets on that?

Gates is obviously sitting since he's helping Shane on the radio.

Sat, 02/22/2014 - 7:14pm

Blake- ECHL daily report shopws Florida has played 23 home games.  Normal so far.  They do have their last 10 games at home 

Blake Sebring

OK, it was something their announcer said.

Bad turnover by Peps early.

Almost another short-handed goal. Pretty sure that was part of the pregame discussion.

Great carry and pass by Szydlowski to set up Miller. 1-0 Komets.

Sat, 02/22/2014 - 7:43pm

In case anyone has been living under that proverbial rock... Canada 1   USA 0


Always have been the best at this game, always will be.


Yesterday, just more evidence.

Blake Sebring

Yeah, what happens if you lose tomorrow? Going to blame the US for taking it out of you?

I still say we should turn down any power play time. Florida taking all the penalties because  they know we play like crap with the man advantage.

Blake Sebring
Sat, 02/22/2014 - 7:48pm

Can't believe how undisciplined Florida is playing, especially with the same ref as last night.

Sat, 02/22/2014 - 7:49pm

Hey Blake, do you think Meisner plays alot like Jonathon Quick?

Blake Sebring
Sat, 02/22/2014 - 7:51pm

At least toinight they are trying some different things on the pp. Embach and Auger on the points. They keep trying to rush it into the zone 1-on-1 instead of working together to get the puck into the zone.  Don't feel comfortable with the short-handed chances Everblades are getting.

Sat, 02/22/2014 - 7:51pm

Power play is very frustrating to watch!! Don't have the answer and I guys at this point in the season Gary doesn't either.

The Komets need more movement  in the slot area on the power play. Players standing around flat footed out front waiting for a pass.

Blake Sebring
Sat, 02/22/2014 - 7:52pm

IDK. It's been so long since I've seen Quick play I can't really say. I didn't get to watch any of the Olympic games. I've got a couple on tape, but no time so far to watch them.

Sat, 02/22/2014 - 7:52pm

Should have said I guess...not guys. Sorry about that.

Blake Sebring
Sat, 02/22/2014 - 8:00pm

I think Jason Dale could make a difference at the point, but you're right, it doesn't matter what the point men do if the forwards all stand around looking at them. Too many guys playing like individuals. MOVE! They have to be incredibly easy to defense, and I know for a fact Gary is telling them to move.

Blake Sebring
Sat, 02/22/2014 - 8:11pm

Gary is really mixing up the forward lines, and the Komets are trapping the heck out of the Everblades, really exposing their weak defensemen.

Sat, 02/22/2014 - 8:14pm

Latvia took more out of the team than the US did.

Blake Sebring
Sat, 02/22/2014 - 8:17pm

Ks are dominating in the corners, especially in the Florida end. They just want the puck more.

Blake Sebring
Sat, 02/22/2014 - 8:22pm

I don't think either man landed any punches in that fight. Peps just kind of held him off and Della Revere's arms weren't long enough to reach him.

Sat, 02/22/2014 - 8:24pm

Not speaking for Alan ; but I think this is where I'd go for fix attempts for the roster:

1. AHL/NHL teams that have no affiliation in the ECHL... They have players available, especially if they get eliminated from playoff contention...

2. There are 20 other ECHL teams... maybe work out a trade?

3. Those pesky future considerations that are still out there...

4. Major Junior's... Try to find another Maggio, Gagnon, or Hodgeman for the stretch run...

I'm just an idiot fan though, so I'm assuming those options are preposterous...

Good period. They need to keep it clean in the 3rd because I think the ref is about to turn the other way on calls.

Blake Sebring
Sat, 02/22/2014 - 8:47pm

Nice power-play goal from Fleming. That was a sweet play.


Blake Sebring
Sat, 02/22/2014 - 8:53pm

I'm still waiting for those two players that other idiot fan predicted a month ago would be showing up.
