Congrats to both! Shows how good the Komets will be on any given night.

Mark

Congrats to all the players..

Dusty

Off topic, but here is a good read about Jeff Zehr of the Icehawks.

This will be the only time I will root for a player of another team to score any PP Goals.

Greg

COngrats to Guy and Kevin.

Junior

RALPH!!!!! I can see him being another Duhart at some point.

Ex-STH

Transactions today:
Nick Boucher (G) Signed to 14-day PTO
Bobby Kukulka (RW) Activated from 7-day IR
*Travis Granbois (RW) Placed on waivers

Hit Somebody!!!

Wow...

Granbois was placed on waivers? That is surprising to me. He was a high draft pick for the K's this summer. I thought he had some promise. I hope this guy doesn't come back and haunt us. I am not trying to start some crap or anything, but I can think of at least 2 other guys I'd let go before him...

Wow!!!

IcyKometFan84

what does PTO mean?

i can't believe that he didn't even get to play a game. im with you hit i could think of some others as well.

Hit Somebody!!!

PTO=Player Try-out

Hit Somebody!!!

I am not exactly sure why you would do a 14-day PTO rather than just sign a guy. It must have to do with contracts and how much money a guy would make. The way players get waived when they have a contract...what is the difference? Anyone know for sure?

Ex-STH

Did Chase just say this is our first meeting with PH this season because the only time we met them, we beat them 4-0 in the pre-season?

ABEATENHORSE

someone better tell mr franky that the komets need to add some big tough guys because if we set the tone early with a fight no way that hurons score first.

Hit Somebody!!!

Lost in space. You still gotta love the guy. Even though I hate his commentary in the mornings. Stick to sports Chaser. He shouldn't comment on politics, economy, or jobs. He sounds bad when he does. Retired autoworkers have to hate his stance he takes on the UAW and such...

Go Komets.

Hit Somebody!!!

Mr. Franky? Who is that? Is he related to Mr. Coney?

ABEATENHORSE

mr franky is the guy who signs the players. i am very upset with him because the games first period is half over and we let in a goal and nobody dropped the gloves to stand up for us. this is not hockey. dont he know that us fans want tough rough hockey. i could care less what the score is as long as the komets win and i see blood before i leave the stadium

ABEATENHORSE

a wise man once said "you can lead a horse to water but if he cant fight you have to punch him in the schnozz and not let him drink"

Mark

Abeatenhorse..

So your mad that PH scored, and that there hasn't been a fight yet..im confused

Mark

Churubusco has a 10-6 halftime lead over Adams Central right now..great game..got the Komets on the internet and the busco game on the radio..

ABEATENHORSE

yes after the goal if henley was in there he would have sent a message to the huron team and cleaned one of there clocks. then they would have been afraid to get near our net and score again.

Mark

You obviously haven't been around long enough to understand the game. You don't go after a guy because he scored..

Hit Somebody!!!

"ABEATENKOMETWARRIOR?" MAN!

Go away MAN....errrr.....WOMAN?

ABEATENHORSE

i dont care i go to games to see tough play.

Hit Somebody!!!

Mark...I think we might have Komet Warrior or maybe his brother for all I know.

ABH...have you seen The Chief at any local diners lately? Was he eating cheeseburgers with Robin Big Snake?

ABEATENHORSE

i dont have to go anywhere and you talk like a child.
i have message for you bucko. a wise man once said "he who hesitates is not lost he is just constipated and if the constipation is from the neck up you put him in the looney bin"

Junior

I thought Granbois played well in the preseason and I'm surprised he didn't get a chance during the season.

Junior

Oh yeah, GO K'S!!!!!!!!!

0-1, we'll get it back in the 2nd!!

Hit Somebody!!!

OHIC.....Wanna Join? You get a free t-shirt and you have to report all of your hockey news to KW so he can approve it and report it 3 weeks late.

Outside Hockey Information Center...

SuperFan...is that you again?

ABEATENHORSE

i turned the game off this team dont have any tough guys. this aint komet hockey.

Hoss

Wanna bet the "Horse" is still in middle school?

Hit Somebody!!!

1069? They could have played this game at McMillen tonight. That is awful. Looks like the IceHawk fans are taking to their team nicely.

I like Kevin Hanson...can someone explain why he is on our Powerplay Unit? He is not a very good offensive defenseman.

ABEATENHORSE

bucko im 27! sorry you guys are happy with this no tough team. mr franky promised us lots of fights. if morency were here we would be tough. why dont they sign danny stewart or some great player like that.

Hit Somebody!!!

Bucko? LOL

Mr. Franky...I will have 2 Mr. Franky's with cheese...A Mr. Franky with no onion...And an order of tator tots...I like Tator Tots!!!

ABEATENHORSE

did someone treat you like a pinyata when you was growing up or something?

a wise man once said "once a king is always a king but twice a night is plenty"

Hit Somebody!!!

3-0 Port Urine. The unlucky #35 is in net tonight. I like the lucky one alot better.

ABEATENHORSE

they need to start a fight. a tough team would protect the net better.

Hit Somebody!!!

Did you say that with or without the slobber?

Mark

You gotta be kidding...

Mr FRANKE didn't promise us alot of fighting, its quite obvious you haven't been around long enough to understand the game.

Mark

HS-

Hansen has some offensive skill, but, if Shirokov was in the lineup, Hansen wouldn't be on PP unit..i wouldn't think...

Hit Somebody!!!

I guess so. I would almost put an extra forward out there with Guy on the point. We had PP chances early and now we are paying for those lost chances.

Mark

i agree..but who would you put out there..

Busco is 2 minutes from a sectional championship..

J-Rid

WAHOOO!!! Go Luers!!! 24-17 over 2A #1 Jimtown in Elkhart!

Mark

wow...Congrats to Luers...

Churubusco wins thier Sectional

JungleMonkey

Anyone think Scoops is undercover as "BeatenHorse" trying to teach us all a lesson?

Mark

doubt it JM..doubt it..

JungleMonkey

Wiseman once said "new blogger not come out of woodwork, he old blogger hiding behind new name"...

ABEATENHORSE

everyone hides on a blog and wish you peeps would stop calling me he when you are ignorant to what i am.

wise man once said "if at first you dont succeed its cuz you too dumb to figure it out the first time"

ABEATENHORSE

stead of worryin about me worry that our team got no toughness and dont fight enough. franky should know what us fans want in a hockey team and he sure dropped the fryin pan on this one.

scoops

Reading this was 3 minutes of my life wasted.

Gotta love that IHL website. Always reliable for a score.

JungleMonkey

Was I just called a "peep"? As in a baby chicken? Or a sugary easter treat?

chuckitt

we already know who you are abeatenhorse. absolutely no hockey knowledge at all. ill have relish on mNy mr franky, how about you hit? MAN
