This restriction to the playoff roster has got to go. I realize that you don't want to have teams load up for the playoffs, but if a team gets serious injury problems, it could lead to disater, and does anyone really think that an amature goaltender is going to win a playoff series? I know it can be done, but come on. The IHL brass need to get real here.

ToeBlake

Well that is understandable with Muskegon, there have been rumors that they will bolt for the junior league USHL next year. I do not see how this schedule benefits the K's until they get to the last 3 games in the series. Why win the division to have this type of set-up...

Will Legault & Shirokov names appear on the cup if won? Hopr to see #82 back here next year.

Justin Cohn

Muskegon is not going to the USHL.

When it comes down to it i'm still a hockey novice, but lets say one goalie breaks an arm game 1, does that mean we only dress 1 goalie game 2? Then say goalie 2 breaks his arm during game 2 and we don't have a back up dressed, does henley then throw on the pads?

I can't imagine any hockey league having a rule like that, thats bad business.

Maybe i just misread the above statement.

Greg

Burgee, if one goalie gets injured they can dress a third, but he has to be an amature and can only play if the second is injured as well.

Justin Cohn

Correct.

Burgee

that makes sense, i don't like it, but i understand why the rule is in place.

Hoss

Burgee, you have been around enough to know about hockey, such as:

DON'T WISH TWO BROKEN ARMS TO OUR TWO GOALIES!!!

LOL...

The Komets gave up 7 weekend home games this season by playing during the week. The Fury sacrificed 3 home games. I would of fought for the 2-3-2 format.

Junior

I understand that it's nice to set up Musky w/ some weekend games, but this format is crap.

Look at Justin putting the USHL rumor to bed. You sure about that?

Pat

Why would the Komets want a 2-3-2 format??? If the series goes 5 games, 3 would have been in Muskegon (only 2 in FW), meaning the Komets lost out on the revenue from a home game.

Justin, are you sure about the 7:30 start time for game 1? A friend bought tickets during intermission Sunday and the Friday one states 8:00. I just checked the Komets' web site and it also shows 8:00.

Our friends live in Warsaw so if it is 7:30 I need to get in touch with them.

Shoot, I'll correct that, thanks. It's 8 p.m.

Tom

Also I believe the PA guy announced that Sundays game is at 6 instead of 5 is that correct? Again if anyone wants to go to Muskegon Sat. or has room for one email me at pacers46725@yahoo.com I am willing to drive and can have 2-3 passengers but if not takers I would like to hitch a ride with someone...email me either way..I want to go to every game of the playoffs this year. GO KOMETS!

Chase said Sunday's game is @ 6:00pm.

chuckitt

during this ist round there were many building conflicts both here and in musk so in order to keep the series on track time wise with the other series then the here there format was all that fit. but what does it matter to all you who think we are invincible? we should win four in a row no matter where we play, right?
