Tailing the Komets

Will named to ECHL all-Rookie team

He's 15-8-4 in 27 appearances this season, and he has gone 11-3-2 in his last 16 decisions. Under contract to the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League, Will ranks seventh in the league, and is first among rookies, with a 2.45 goals-against average and his .919 save percentage is fourth in the league.

but Faille did not make it despite averaging better points per game than anyone who was named and a plus-minus that is plu-12 better than every other rookie.

The ECHL website photo of Will wearing the Komets knit cap( outside /Toledo) is one of the best Komet photos I have seen. Such a keepsake for both Will ( no matter what his future becomes) and the Komet organization.

Faille was deserving but I see no one not deserving listed.

Agreed, in part.

I just think it's interesting that the ECHL pushes the call-ups to the AHL, but those players who get called up get hurt on the voting because they don't have as many ECHL games played. Ironic.

At the risk of sounding really stupid could somebody please explain what all of this means? does this mean that these players will no longer be on our team?

It's essentially just naming an all-star team.
