Ya, nice article prohockey.


Khampionship? Oh brother... Was he up all night thinking of that one?
Anyways, I do like the "Fury Corner" articles on the players in Rop's blog. Probably too late to do this here this year but maybe next season Justin? :)


prohockeynews couldnt of said it any better

what a playoff preview from Rop...he seems to know whats coming the Fury's and his way

Flint in six, not seven.


I am going to go against the grain here. I believe the Icehawks have come to far to let flint under them.

PH in five games
Komets in four

Komets over PH in seven

Hit Somebody!!!

Komets would steam-roll the Ice-Hawks. The only team that could give the Komets trouble if and when we are in the finals is the Generals. They have more overall talent than Port Huron and more scoring power. To beat the Komets, the other teams have to score lots of goals against the 2 best net-minders in the league. Flint is the only team capable of that in my opinion. Muskegon 2 or 3 years ago could have done it, but those guys have been somewhat quiet and uninspired most of the year. If they can somehow turn on the scoring switch, it might be an interesting series.

I will predict a 5 game first round win over the Fury.

Flint will beat Port Huron in 6.

Komets will beat Flint in 4. The Paper Champs will come up short this year and their doubting of Al Sims will hurt so bad that they will begin crying almost as loud as the Kalamazoo Krybabies led by their MVP Kory Krylander.

Let's Go Komets!!!


flint would give the K'S = if they GOON-IT-UP = trouble. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN { King-Kong HENLEY]


This says it all...

"If you want to be the champion, you have to go through Fort Wayne," said Ramsay. "We're definitely the underdog and we don't like it, but we'll make the best of it."

Who's to say Boucher doesn't start game one? I'd rather see a guy who comes out and holds it down on a regular basis in the playoffs vs. a guy who pitches numurous shutouts then follows it with a 4 or 5 Goals allowed the next night.

Either way we have two great goalies.

Well, if they keep with the every other game rotation ... Reiter starts Game 1.


Nothing against Dave Gagnon and Cory Campbell (those two were the back-ups to Reddick and Lawson), but neither got the playing time that Boucher did. Face it Justin we have two legit starting goaltenders and if the rotation works then so be it. I think it would be like a mini competiton between the two to see who could have a better playoff record. That would be a win-win for the Komets and the fans.


I don't really care who starts. All I know is that Reiter is one heck of a playoff goaltender! Anyone remember how he practically stood on his head during his first round against us a couple of years ago while he was playing for Missouri? That's when I knew I'd love to see that guy in orange and black.

I'm looking forward to a full hockey weekend. We're going to Muskegon on Saturday too. Let's get it started on the right foot tonight. Go K's!!!


Does anyone have the home-road record breakdown for each goalie, against the whole league and/or just against Muskegon?
That may play into Al's decision of who starts Game 1.


That is less-than-funny. I like my joke better -- about the Komets playing the Kalamazoo Wings for the exclusive legal rights to the initial "K". :D
