I think Kerr got a raw deal- with all the injuries. I always liked him as a player- just to bad.

JW

how about yankee stadium hosting a hockey game for its last sporting event...what a way to go out. BOOO the yankees

next have red wings/bhawks play at wrigley before they tear that junk down. maybe it will erase those mediocre years of "baseball"

Jerad Shaw

Never ever refer to Wrigley Field as junk. It is the greatest stadium in all of sports. It's much better then US Cell-out Field!!

JW

win a title and get back at me in the next 100 years

How stupid..Why would any team fire the head coach a month before playoffs? Not fair to the players, fans, or the community of Flint. Atleast wait it out and see what the next couple of months bring.
Hope Currdy is okay.

Shutterbug

I was thinking the same thing; why now? Although currently 10 pts separate 2nd and 6th place.

I wish Curadeau, Komets' leading goal scorer with 30, a speedy recovery.

Jungle Monkey

Kerr stunk.

In related news, Flint Generals captain Kris Mallette was arrested for theft today when he went to pick up his pay check.

Lazy players+Lackluster coaching= Unemployement.

Hit Somebody!!!

Wow....

Kerr fired!

Wow.

That is very surprising. The timing is poor.

So much for Flint the Paper Champs, they will be lucky to make the playoffs now.

Anybody going to the Green Ice game next Monday in Kalamazoo?

morency fan

im going to the green ice game
ive never been to one i bet its cool...

Henley67250

I would like to go to it too...

JR

No brainer... Sit Curadeau and let him heal... 27 pt lead, no need to rush him back and risk further injury to the groin or a compensation type injury...

Always surprised that the Flint teams always played so "soft" under Kerr. That totally went against how he played...

chuckitt

maybe savage should be named coach, he knows all.

scoops

I thought that was my title?

Flint is a disaster every year. Other than the first year the Komets were in the UHL where they were the champs, Flint manages to have some major problem during the year every year it seems.

scoops

The swagger and big kid on the block attitude has been on a decline since the quarter poll of the season. Be intersting if they get that back in time to han on to a playoff spot. They still have a talented lineup when they want to play and everyone is healthy.

Ryne Gurney

You really want to sit Curadeau on the game that sets the home wins record, I would see if he feels up to it.

JR

What's more important??? The home win streak record or a healthy Curadeau going into the playoffs.... Lets look at the big picture...

Hoss

That's a fun question to debate. Without looking it up, and this is for the Komet fans that have started watching the Komets since 1970, did the 63-64 team with the cup? I know they had the winning streak, but I don't know if they won the cup. Every year there is one team that wins the cup, but not every team has a chance to break a IHL record. Would you rather see a the Komets win the cup or set the IHL record?


With that being said, I think they might do both...what do you think?

Ryne Gurney

I would a million times see them win the cup, and as of right now, who can stop them.

Ryne Gurney

and JR thats why I said to see how he's feeling, if this game didn't mean anything, i would sit him all the way. But this game is important to all those guys.

scoops

The Toledo Blades defeated the Komets 4-2 to win the cup that year Hoss.

The team is probably not thinking about the playoffs so this game is the most important game of the season right now. Even though the K's went 0-2 without Curdy, I still believe we have enough to beat K-zoo on Friday. There has been a few days to rest since the injury and my gut feeling is he will play.

St.Christopher

I wasn't a Komets fan until 1983 so I'm disqualified from this debate. Just when I thought things were good.... I get beat out by seniority.

St.Christopher

Scoops...I've got t-shirts older than you.Booyah!

Justin Cohn

Stalker. :)

Junior

K's sign a Junior OHL player

Nice to see El Sid thinking about an old club. Once again Komets spelled with a "C", but what are you going to do. I hope this kid works out for the rest of the season, sounds like his head might not be fully comitted to the Komets which could be a problem, but if he still wants to play hockey this yearm then that's something. Does this kid count toward the Amature 2 they can sign?

gman

Don't like his comment about the league either but he may need a couple of 'boards' to change his mind :)

Greg

Nothing says the Komets have to keep him.

scoops

The road to get where you want to go professionally doesn't always have to be through the ECHL or AHL.
I don't put much into what he said. He's a 19yr old kid who probably has the same view of the IHL as others do who don't know much about it. He might look at it differently once he plays here and helps win a title. :)

Greg

Might be, but if he reads what some of the vets, especially some on the Komets, have to say....just saying.

St.Christopher

Cohny are you still upset about the Clevland Browns sock comment? I've never seen CB's hockey socks before.

St.Christopher

You're right scoops,19 yr.old's are very impressional and will do anything to fit in with their peers.I see him having a change of heart once Sims enlightens him.

Shutterbug

Especially since Sims knows a couple of teenagers himself :)
Plus Shaf and the others can also help with his impression of the league.

St.Christopher

Sorry, meant impressionable.

Justin Cohn

They're not Browns sock intentionally. But they are ugggly. Don't ask me where I got them. No, not upset, but I think I'm going to start calling that the antisocial hockey league.

JW

the kid is being honest. of course, on here thats a bad thing

St.Christopher

We put the "fun" back in disfunctional. Yeah the socks are ugly but they're so coooool.

Henley67250

Larry Schmidt tell me you aren't going to play that St. Patty's Day song after a goal on Saturday?

Justin Cohn

Thanks for the tip, Junior, by the way. ... Ah, well, I soon will have a new jersey to put those socks to shame.

mightbite

The kid may need Woods-Bertram-Legualt-HENLEY to knock him around a little to show him the IHL. Or Chaulk.

St.Christopher

Don't tell me they make a Clevland Browns hockey jersey. Once you get to know all the Tuesday and Friday regulars it won't seem so unsocial.

Justin Cohn

Uh, I'm not a Browns fan. Go Lions. Fire Millen. Woo-hoo. ... Well, someday I'll crack the clique. Maybe.

Komets PA

Not as far as I know, but I do plan to have a green beer after the game.
