Tailing the Komets

AHL exhibition game

It's 3-1 Lake Erie after one. I would guess less than 1,000 people here. Not a lot of continuity in the game, but you can obviously tell the talent of the individuals on the ice. 

What did you guys think?

I enjoyed the game, as an exhibition. I'm sure once they played more together with systems in place it would be a totally different game. Sol is big, but didn't seem to use his length or size against smaller players, Szyd was used sparingly and didn't stand out one way or the other. I do like Martin, seems like good stay at home dman, nice passes and jumped into the play nicely for his goal.

Not that I was stalking you, Blake, but saw you talking to some suits during the last intermission. Lake Erie staff?

I enjoyed it.  Hitting was good, speed was good and over all talent was noticably better then in the ECHL. To bad the game wasn't advertised. I think the crowd would have been better if it was. JEERS to the people in charge of that.

CHEERS to watching AAA talent again...

JEERS to whoever started the harassment policy every time you left your seats... This, unfortunately, was the lasting impression of the night. Komets fans, expect long delays getting to your seats and God forbid you lose your ticket because you'll be threatened to be escorted out by the sheriffs deputies... BIG, BIG JEERS for this...

Ditto on the "pre-screening policy.  Perhaps some enterprising reporter could get a statement from the Coliseum staff about this.  I would be fascinated to know what problem they're trying to solve via this policy.  I suspect they will find that it's not worth it.

I would imagine they are trying to protect the value of the tickets people bought for the lower sections. It's difficult to justify paying full price for those if anyone else can just come on down from wherever if they paid for lower-priced tickets. That's kind of what did in indoor football here. Why buy tickets when more than half the crowd was getting in for free? In some extreme ways, it could be considered a form of theft.

I'll ask and report back.
