The Muskegon Fury signed Jeff Nelson, who was a United Hockey League MVP with the team in 2005-06. He has played 52 NHL games with Nashville and Washington. So, a Fury team that already gives the Komets fits should be even better.
Meanwhile, according to The Flint Journal, the reeling Flint Generals will get back goaltender Chad Alban, who has missed most of the season with injuries. But they're losing Mike Kinnie, who reportedly will have knee surgery, and defenseman Shaun Fisher, one of their better playmakers. The additions and the losses look like a wash to me in Flint.
