By the way, Mario Larcoque tied for third in voting with Dale Lupul, Dave Van Drunen and Chris Busby. Philippe Plante was second.


Thanks for the link to Brendan's article. That is a great story.

Some how I can't get the visual of "The Chief" dukeing it out with anybody. I guess deep down there was a button of some sort to push. Go Komets

A lot of people don't like Savage's writing, but that was a great story.


Hey JC how bout a story on the flag waivers?


Anybody see where Puhalski got named UHL coach of the Year?


Goalie girl, Puhalski showed a lot of emotion in the last series. In the last game in Chicago he even through a water bottle at an official and got kicked out of the game. He also was yelling a lot at an official late in the game when his team was about to receive a 5-3 powerplay. He was alive in the last series.

Did the Flags waive somebody I missed?


I think they mean the people who waive the flags during the games.


There's too many of 'us...

I kind of started it with the home made flags and then all of the sudden the Frankes came out with their own "yard flags"...now everyone has one...

Justin Cohn

I know. It was a joke.

I think Puhalski is just upset that he got himself into a job where they have a nice place to play, but no one comes out to watch. But seriously, he left a solid job with Fort Wayne to coach Chicago. Personally, I'm glad he did--our team wouldn't be who they are without Bingham so Coach B, THANK YOU!

As to Puhalski, he gave him his job here to help his wife in her line of work so like the coach or not, you have to like and respect the man.

I agree with you Brad . If Puhalski hadn't gone to Chicago we wouldn't have got In my opinion, the "True Coach of the Year" here in Fort Wayne. I am glad for Puhalski on his award. I hope that things work out for him with all the scramble with Rockford and the Hounds. It couldn't have been an easy year for him. I wish him well. He just dosen't strike me as a fighter. I always thought he was more cerebral,hence his demeanor at some of the K's games his last season here. You guys are the experts, I'm just a casual observer. I wish him the best. Go K's
