Tailing the Komets

Komets blow another big lead in growing trend


Sat, 01/03/2015 - 12:48am

Blake, I have an idea. Komets need to stop playing that "Goalie you suck song". It just gets the other team pumped up. They played it monday when we had a lead and lost, and it happened again tonight. Just a thought.  Also all the goalies we have had this year, Nagle seams to be the real deal. I just dont understand why a team would call him up and dont put him in a game to see how he does. What good does it do putting him in as back up and then send him back to us? I just dont get it.

Hmmmmmm, the "wait for Christmas" mantra takes on a whole new meaning this season...

With ECHLTV should any team ever be caught off guard by a quirky scheme? You can go back and watch archived games. This isn't something new, Wheeling has employed this scheme during this season...

If the trend continues, then they will get their butts kicked tonight.

At least if you still wanna play it settle the Karma and play it when the other team gets within 1 in the third just replace your goalie with our defense.. That should restore the balance of power

I'm with #1 Fan and who/suz.  Put the song to rest.  It just makes everyone look goofy when you lose the game.

Michael Franke not happy on the radio this morning.  Gary Graham not happy also.  The players don't seem to be happy, so why not a change with their style of play? 

Again they score way more than enough goals to win a game, Roman Will was outstanding in net, they score two short-handed goals, and they still lose.  So its got to be on the "team" defense. 

In all my years of watching Komet hockey I don't recall ever seeing this many three goal leads squandered (last season and this season).  Whatever the message is doesn't seem to be getting through. Somehow you need to sit someone, trade someone, or scare someone.  It may be numerous players.

Not trying to "pick" on someone intentionally, but hasn't Christian Ouellet disappeared??

On another note I find it interesting that the Rochester Americans sent back to Elmira (their affiliate) goaltender Travis Fullerton.  He didn't see any action.  Then they call up Pat Nagle (he was the backup last night and looks as if he will start a game this weekend).  Good for Nagle but interesting that they send back a goaltender to their own affiliate while taking someone else.

If the Komets do feel like they want to shake things up with a trade, make sure you get equal value (and remember to include a "no-report" clause).

If your going to Toledo, be careful.  Highways are slippery and I'm afraid after tonight's game the division lead will have slipped away too.
