No one EVER responds to his blogs anyways, he waits for other sites to respond then tears others down.

You did nothing wrong and didn't warrant his response.


Justin, update the poll by adding Brent Henley and then remove all of the votes from the other Komets and finally put all the votes after Brent's name.

Justin Cohn

Lol, I will change that poll when I get a chance.


You should invite Savage to a live discussion/debate on the radio show someime. I'm kinda serious. Then you could totally pwn him in "Viva Pinata."

Jerad Shaw

Savage does have some nice hair though. Its kind of like a classy mullett kind of. Very respectable due coming out of Flint. In my opinion Savage 1 Cohn 0 :)


i seen that luke staufacher (sp) quit his echl team, think flint and macho man savage have a shot at him?

Jerad Shaw

I would love to see him and Woods match up for a game. Can you imagine those two skating all over the ice. That would be fun to watch.


If Flint signs Luke, they would be 6,000 over the cap and 14 players would be on IR.

For starters, Happy Birthday Justin. I have only been reading your blog for a couple weeks. I'm glad that I found it. Your input plus the readers comments have kept me hungry. What a great source of Komet info. It's great to have Brent back. He is a great overall defenceman. I was sad to hear that we could not get Erick Tremblay back in town. Prior to the start of training camp I was wishing for the Def. duo of Henley and Tremblay (Twin Towers).
Woods is a fire cracker! I felt a little buzz of anticipation when Woods stepted onto the ice after his first scrum. The only thing missing for me is the hard plays and checks along the boards. Kevin had a nice check along the boards during the first couple min. of the first home game. He was tagged with a Boarding call??? Just as your find yourself at the edge of your seat ready to cheer. BANG!!! The Ref pops your balloon. The officials are most of the problem. I have hope that this will be worked out.



all hail the return of the king. the komets will never lose a game again.


i agree with turner!! but for some reason i dont see him doin that. but if he did i would love to know when. i would deffinatly tune in. Go KOMETS! fury bashing time saturday



How do you know they will be 6 grand over the cap? I'm not saying it's not true but how do you know?

If anyone is curious...Rob Guinn is leading the CHL in a statistic.

(He has the worst +/- in the league. -10)


I will definitely be interested to see how Henley does when he is able to return to the ice. I think our fighting power is there, but I'm still wanting to see more goals scored. I'm still a little nervous with this team. I feel that they still have much to prove. I checked the IHL website today and out of the top 13 goal scorers, the Komets only have one of those spots...with the talent on this team, we should possess more slots on that statistic chart. If our goalie continues his fine job, our defense continues to defend, and our forwards start scoring, we should be good, however, we need to score more. Just my opinions.

Justin Cohn

Turner is the man to arrange such a thing. What exactly would we be debating?


Andrew, I was blowing the figure out of proportion a bit because it seems like they are paying plenty of vets money and would have trouble staying under the cap.


Andrea, we're outscoring the opponent 7-1 at home. I don't think scoring goals at home will be that big of a deal. I would agree with you on the road, however, with only one road game under our belt and 3 games total, I think it is a bit early to be worried about how many goals we are netting. As for only one scorer in the top 13, agian the season is two weeks old with less than a handful of games played. The scoring has been spread out among the players, which I like, it means early on we are not depending on one or two guys to carry the load. Give it some time, the season is still way too young.

Jungle Monkey

It's 3 games people. Even if we should have 10 of the top 12 scorers in the league, I think its awful early to start worrying.


Ever heard of scoring balance Andrea?


Its just her opinion guys....


I didn't mean to jump on her about her opinion. I was just stating that its early. 15 games in if her points still exist, they will be very valid.


I'm just saying that we've played 2 games at home and both outcomes have been good.


wise man once said "opinion is like used toilet paper. very important to person who needed it but not wanted by anyone else"


I can't wait till Henley is ready to go. He will make our defense much better and teams will think twice about running our goalies. I think he will have a positive effect on Legualt, Bertram and Woods by easing the burden a bit. I really like the Komets toughness and the overall makeup of the team!!!!

Can't wait to see Boucher play this weekend.

Henley will own souls in the IHL this year!


Justin, I'd read every day of the week and twice on Sunday over that hack in Flint.

Hit Somebody!!!

A beaten horse's arse graces us with his wisdom once again. Thanks buddy.


call me names? are you two years old? what makes you think im a guy?


ooof! if komets would have set tone early with a fight no way Port Huron scores first.


no toughness at all. someone needs to give the huron team a blast in the ying yang. if they play like this at home i am not going to buy anymore tickets. if they aint gonna win at least they can be tough and fight.

Hit Somebody!!!

Did you go to the game Justin?

Glad the K's won...

Where is the toughness for the K's? Bertram is tough. He cannot continue to fight every battle out there. Our star players took a beating tonight. Muskegon was head hunting Chaulk, Marchant, Acquino, Shafronov, etc. Why did coach leave Woods and Legault stuck on the bench all night long until 12 seconds left in the game? Woods can actually skate and plays good hockey. I just hate it when they get us excited about a guy like Woods and then pull the rug out from under us.

Good win tonight, the physical play from the K's and excitement was gone until the last minute of the game. No one body checks. The Fury out hit us all night long. What gives? Why have guys like Woods and Legault if you aren't going to use them?

It was a good win though. I know I will take a bashing for those feelings. But everyone I talked to after the game said the same thing. Sorry in advance.

Komet Fan

I agree with you Hit... Woods and Legault had 1 shift in the 1st period then didn't see the ice again until 12 seconds were left to make sure the Fury didn't goon it up. With as badly as Shafranov and Marchant are playing, it just does not make any sense to play them and sit Woods and Legault. I always enjoy a good win, but I am tired of watching our team get outhit night after night, especially in our barn.
