Alan, you just gave the perfect Andy griffith show analogy with Patrusso and Bennefield. You know that feeling you get when you turn it on and expect to see Barney in black and white and its in color with Howard Sprague?

That was a great sitcom.  Lots of good stories.  I think my favorite was when Opie accidentally killed the bird in the tree with his slingshot. Remorse and guilt overcame him so he took over feeding the babies and had to have a "grow up" moment by releasing them from their cage. 

If my memory is correct, when the birds flew away (winkin', blinkin' and nod), he turned to his Pa and said "the cage sure seems empty, Pa".  To which Andy replied, "yes, but don't the trees seem to be full."

My favorite character was Otis (which probably says something about my character).

I think this blog officially just jumped the shark.

RG2, Colorado has not announced many of their AHL contracts and none of the previous year Lake Erie contracted players have signed anywhere else. The expectation is many will follow to San Antonio. Considering how much the SA coach loves Petryk, it's not a bad assumption.

Would love to see if Heard made the move to SA. Had a ton of energy and physical game up front. Having a Guy like that can turn around the momentum of the game 1 shot or hit. Go Ks!!

Mitchell Heard signed with Stockton of the AHL.  He doesn't have anything to do with the Avalanche/Rampage organizations anymore.

‎Patrosso led the Ks in pts... yeah it was less then his previous season in PH but the entire Ks roster had a down yr in their 1st CHL season -- seems odd that Patrosso stood out as a disappointment 

I do agree that Bennefield was a head-scratcher  but just shows that regardless if it's an established vet or a young wippersnaper it's waisted time trying to predict ‎

Okay back to vacation ‎

Jamie Schaffsma!!!     wow did not see that. way under the radar. Great two way player. excellent addition. winner

Okay so now comes the question whose going to be the captain. I automatically think Schaafsma. The guy basically has won a championship every year he has played. Also I feel we have three good lines now with help from San Antonio. Way to go Komets.

being a winner for three years has got nothing to do with being named captain.   the signing of jamie looks like a good steal!  as far as marin goes, i thought he signed an ahl contract somewhere but could be wrong.  my biggest question right now is what is up with the invite of leo thomas to camp???? in my opinion he stopped playing hard the last year he was here, just mailing it in plus he had a hard time keeping up with the rest of the speedsteres!  must have owed him a favor and maybe hes here so other teams can get a look!
