Nice job !!! If Aquino keeps it up he'll get a call up.

morency fan

whats a call up?
and congrates to both :)

mightbite

To AHL - maybe we'll get Morencey???

Andy

I do not think there is any type of deal with Aquino to be called up (at least i hope there isn't). Justin can we get this clarified if there is an actual deal that Luciano could get called up.

Oh and they should just get rid of the rookie of the week award and just call it the Aquino award because his face is going to be in that spot all year long! :)

Hit Somebody!!!

He is the property of the NY Islanders. He could and most likely will get a call up. If he doesn't, whoever is watching their talent in the Minors, is stupid, or hasn't a clue. This kid is heads and shoulders above the talent in this league. Who is better than him right now?

DROPTHEGLOVES!!!!

ROB GUINN

marco

lol....I was thinking the same thing.

chuckitt

eerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Hit Somebody!!!

I have forgotten who that girl is.

ABEATENHORSE

king kong henley is the bestest player and always will be the mvp of the komets

Hit Somebody!!!

Thank you Warrior for reminding us.

Jerad Shaw

Yes, He is by far the bestest. He still ain't no Fletcher. Wow, it pains me to type in Beatenhorse grammer!

Hit Somebody!!!

Roberta returns to the Jungle on Sunday. I would say the Hate will be 85% to the Love 5% with Nothing at 10%. Hope King Kong or Woody bumps into him.

Jerad Shaw

You guys are so harsh on poor Robbie. He is just trying to play the game he loves, and doing the best he can. I say that you guys give him a break, like I give Bouchard and Van Druden when they come to the Jungle!!! :)

Hit Somebody!!!

UHHHHH....HMMMMMM......UHHHHH....NO! How about we give him a laurel and hardy handshake and introduce him to King Kong.

Charlie I

hopefully he has finished that nursing degree cause looks like the hockey days are over.

JR

So is Sessa really hurt or are the K's doing some shopping?? Any word, Justin, on who may be the odd man out???

Komet Fan

Sessa is not hurt... He is as good as gone. Durdin is not hurt either, other than the normal bumps and bruises. He is in the doghouse for sure.

chuckitt

sessa is a guy we need to keep. maybe hes a slow starter like chaulk. but hes always put up decent numbers and hes got a wicked shot, hes just gotta get it on net!!

Bob

Why can't we just show some class and cut Guinn a break. After all, we're supposed to be the best fans in all of minor league hockey.

mightbite

HENLEY will give him a break!!!!

ABEATENHORSE

bob iz right. gwuinn may save someone here a life someday. guinn and king kong henley would make one of da best defence combos in the ihl.

Hit Somebody!!!

Looks like Bob will be in the 10% crowd. Super Fan Sebring will give him a break. I am sure a novel is coming about him soon in the other fish wrap.

derekm

No class.

Hit Somebody!!!

You guys are right. Rob is the greatest player ever. Sorry I don't like him as a player. Might be a great guy, on the ice, not my favorite. You guys are allowed to like him. I like Kelly Miller alot, and it was fine and dandy when everone rail-roaded him last year. Class?

JW

ABEATEN horse...Your obsession with Henley is slightly disturbing. You refer to him as "King Kong" like you know something about him the rest of us dont. hmmmm????

Hit Somebody!!!

King Kong is actually a pretty cool name for our big-guy. I can't wait to see King Kong Saturday night.

Henley67250

Brent has been added to the roster on the komets website. Can't wait to see wanna-be tough guy Segal go after him Saturday...What a panzie!

And on Sunday, it'll be Ewasko. 2 heavyweights. Someone please get Ewasko-Henley on video and put it on YouTube. It's going to be popular!!!

Hit Somebody!!!

Who will be the roster cut or cuts? Anyone have a guess? Will it be 1, 2, or 3 guys gone? I say stay young at all costs. Don't waive a young guy with talent, hustle, and quicks to keep an older, slower, lazy player. Kukulka must stay. Woods must stay. I even lean towards keeping Sessa. You let him go, he will come back to haunt you on Flint, Muskegon, or K-Zoo in a heart-beat.

I am afraid that Legault is in trouble. I like him alot, but can we keep him when coach plays him 1 shift a game? He will be another guy that turns up on another IHL roster that will haunt us.

Any thoughts?

scoops

I would not be surprised if William Wallace sits out another week. All the more to add to the legend.

Whether your name is Rob Guinn or Guy Dupuis, when you put up 224pts in the last 7 years as a defenseman, that is pretty good career. The hatred towards Guinn has been well documented by the rank and file (total population, 4) on this blog for 3 years now. It's stale. I guess moving on with your lives and showing just a little class is out of the question?

Hit Somebody!!!

We all can't be like you Scoops. Poo that doesn't stink and all...
RJOS....keep that swagger dog!

morency fan

can someone tell me what a call up is? please :) thanx

Hit Somebody!!!

Why are you so negative towards Henley? He is a sound d-man. He plays his position well. He can score within the right system. He is physical. He is huge. He sticks up for his teammates. He is a crowd favorite. Even K-Zoo fans were asking me when he was coming back because he is fun to watch. They agree he adds to the entertainment as you aren't sure what might happen next. He is a definite plus for our team no matter how you look at it. You seem to have hatred for him...Population of 1 or 2 depending on the true alias of ABEATENHORSE.

Hit Somebody!!!

Call-up...being recalled to a higher level team...moving from this level to the AHL would be a call-up.

scoops

Are you saying I am negative against Brent Henley Hit or referring to someone else?

marco

I'm lost...

scoops

I have absolutely no ill feelings towards Henley at all. I love the fact we got him back and cannot wait to see him again this season.
I agree with everything you said except for the fact he can score in the right system. Thats a stretch but its your opinion.

People are not coming to the MCC to see Henley play his position well or make a tape to tape pass. They want to see hits and fights out of him. He is already penciled in to fight Segal and Ewasko this weekend and as we move on down the schedule, the dance card will be filled. People are being unrealistic and that is unfortunate.

Outside of him playing some sound defense, the one thing I am hoping his presence does for this team right now is provide a spark and re-ignite the physical play that dominiated the early portion of the season.

ABEATENHORSE

hey hit bucko you better watch it cuz you talk like a maroon with no brains. king kong henley is the bestest player the komets need to win a cup cuz without him they go nowhere. dont be a maroon hater bucko.

JW

well said scoops. I also have no ill feelings towards Henley but, Im sick of hearing how King Kong Henley is going to save the Komets and be the MVP according to certain people who post on here.

poor Segal is going to need someone to save him if he and Henley tussle. Henley/Ewasko sounds like fun! But, from what I heard on the channel 57 replay of the Kzoo game, Henley wants Willis pretty bad. Cant wait for that one!!

Bob

Hit,

I know that a lot of folks bashed Kelly Miller....just to let you know I was always in Miller's corner as were several friends of mine.

If that places me in some minority crowd....then so be it.

Mark

Scoops nailed this one.

I totally agree. People gotta remember that he is coming off a major knee injury, i think alot of people are being unrealalistic Lets just hope he gets thru this weekend without re-injuring the knee.

mightbite

muskegon picked up morrison - looks like he may of fought every game.

Jerad Shaw

Ding Ding Scoops= Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

lovelost

Henley is not going to fight uch right now guys.

St.Christopher

Yep....more intrested in seeing KK Henley gel with one or more of the lines and special teams rather than police the ice right now. Besides, Bert's doing a fine job as an ice cop.

Junior

Fights last for 30 seconds, I want to see Henley come in and start hitting/checking. Get the teams off their game by knocking the crap out of them. This is more beneficial to the team then a fight or two. Plus, it's contagious throughout the whole team and the locker-room.

Get hitting K's!! They've went away w/ that the past week or so.

Tom

Henley=good player...not great...could maybe become great. hating Guinn is wrong...hating anyone is really wrong. Guinn was not any worse than Richardsons' buddy last year who played every once in awhile really well and other times was unnoticeable. Cut him some slack...he is doing something most all of us wish we could do. Also Henley is like Tyler Willis from K-zoo. I love watching Willis play because he starts a lot of stuff and can actually play hockey. When he is missing the games start to look more like Port Huron games. He is like Danny Steward used to be for us. I might be a Komets fan but when I go to K-zoo I cheer for Willis to because he adds color to the game.

Charlie in Rochester Hills, MI

And I get railroaded for ripping on the level of play in the IHL, yet you folks do these rude attacks on players and it's ok? Maybe you folks deserve crappy hockey to go with your crappy attitudes. Grow up! The Frankes are wrong for playing in this league. (Notice no personnal attacks, what a concept!) Port Huron is not likely to stay in operation only drawing 800 fans last Sunday. I know fans in K-zoo, Muskegon, Flint, and Port Huron who used to go to games when the hockey was decent, but they too are saying the league is crap. Like some of you said, it's because I inherited all my money, or lived in the arrogant suburbs of Detroit, or if the Blackhawks did not "own" the Red Wings. Tigers, Red Wings, Pistons rule. Lions not so good. Pity. Pity, Ha Ha!

Jungle Monkey

You people are all goofy. Half of these posts don't even make sense. Henley is good at his job, let him do it and enjoy watching him do it.

Andy

Now I know it has been looked down on about talking about but charlie brought it back up about the Komets not being in the AHL.

I want to take a poll. I do not want extra gab about the topic, I just want simple Yes or No's. If the Komets were to move to The AHL and say ticket prices went up $3.50 dollars for each level. Would you still go to all of the games/the same amount you already go to?
