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? 

Lake Erie cuts

Komets just got back Ian Barteaux, Paul Crowder, Angelo Esposito, Eric Faille, Thomas Frazee, Matt Krug and Pat Nagle. Also rookie goaltender Francois Tremblay who was a fifth rond pick by St. Louis in 2012.

18 Komets games on MyTV

From a Komets press release:

So there's talk...

...online about a potential ECHL-CHL merger being announced Wednesday. There's a report that team owners from both leagues were meeting in St. Louis. Some reports say it's going to happen, and others say talks are dead.

I think it could happen for several reasons:

1. It's been way too quiet among all the owners. If this wasn't serious, someone would have denied it by now. No one has. It's also interesting that several people in both leagues who almost always call back did not on Tuesday. Guess they would prefer not to lie or even get asked the question.
