Glad to hear that! Lets Kick some butt tomorrow night so we can end it on friday night.

FWKRTJ

I thought you couldn't replace players on suspension?

Or is that different for the playoffs?

Not to bring bad news, but please read.

They'll be back. Trust me. ... I think. ... But he even writes, last year it was more bleak than this year.

Andy

Justin i was thinking the same thing as FWKRTJ, are the playoffs different?

Conley

Sounds to me like they are wanting to draw a crowd for possibly the "last Fury game at LC Walker"Wednesday. Just offer a number 27 bobblelip and that would bring them to the arena. Don't scare those people into thinking no Fury next year. Come on.

RIck

I think the only players you can replace is if BOTH goalies are injured. you are allowed to bring in a rookie (or amateur) goaile.

The K's still have Saidachev and the amatuer "D" man Dufresne

Conley

I did see Saidachev scratching his head at the game Sunday. He has the itch to play. I personally think we have been lacking that spark from him. 89 is back!

ToeBlake

The USHL going into Muskegon is not a longshot by no means. That is one of the areas he is looking into to keep hockey in Muskegon. I think the K's will have to skate a man short because of the suspension.

Wendy

That is expected, I suppose. At least it wasn't more. We will miss him, in any case. I'm glad he'll be back for Friday's game. :)

And just to clarify from before, I was standing on the landing and wasn't blocking anyone's view. The only thing I can think of that I did differently from the previous game was try to move around a bit more. Perhaps I should have kept my back to wall. But I think I was against the wall when the red-coated gentleman gestured for me to join a crowd of people he had collected at the gate. He was keeping them bunched up on the corridor steps. Meanwhile, a woman in 216 was able to stand on the landing and take all the photos she wanted, just like I had on Friday night. I didn't ask about that though, as I didn't want to ruin her evening as well. :P

As for simply not taking pictures, I'm sorry, but it's something that means a great deal to me. I'd explain more, but I shouldn't have to.

And when I say I understand the danger, I do. I had a serious concussion a few years ago and still have the scars to prove it. The doctors told me I have an unusually hard head -- no pun intended. I knew hitting my head on things all these years would eventually prove useful. :D

The article mentioned a critical meeting in Kalamazoo today. What is the emergency?

Hoss

Wendy, if you were standing on the walkway deviding the lower bowl from the upper bowl, there is no reason for you to be sorry. When you said you were on the landing, I pictured you standing at the top of the stairs going to the upper bowl, hence you would be in the way of the fans seated around you. Also there are a few people that take photos all game long for many, many, many years, so they might get away with more from the redcoats.
