This mess were seeing outside now will be right in their path of travel on 69 tomorrow. Heck i'd say even leave today! lol!

Andrew

Flint wouldn't do that, that would be the logical thing to do...

mightbite

I'm still waiting for WINTER to start!!!!

Justin Cohn

Shhhh, haven't you heard, professional teams aren't supposed to worry about making it to games.

kometfan

Actually here in and around Manchester area we haven't got as much sleet as everyone else it has been pretty much all snow...and its suppose to be done later on tonight..hopefully road crews can get out and clean up the mess! and by the way..my hero finally retires today....what are the packers going to do?

Andrew

Motel 6 in Fort Wayne anyone? Is sleeping over night because of winter really that expensive? Minor league baseball teams have to do it all the time (although they do have money coming from a higher power).

FiveMinuteMajor

Hush, mightbite! My normally 12 minute commute took me almost an hour today... But when I finally did get home the tree in front of my house was full of robins getting sleeted on. I don't think I'm gonna make it to the game tomorrow, so hopefully someone will keep us updated!

morency fan

it will ruin my week and weekend if the game is cancelled tomorrow...since i cant go saturday... does anyone know how the weathers suppose to be saturday and sunday?...

Hit Somebody!!!

I saw somewhere else where Sims is changing the lines around. he is putting Drouin with Chaulk and Woods on the top line, and moving Aquino down with Marchant and Reynolds. I don't like this. It worries me a little bit. Aquino, Chaulk, and Woods should stay together. I always wondered what a line of Aquino, Curadeau, and Saidachev would look like. Speedy to say the least. Or Woods, Aquino, Curadeau.

I say don't mess with a good thing, Mr. Puhulski....errrr....Al.

Tomorrow is shaping up to be a great day, no school (I'm in high school, and I already have a two hour delay)then a Komet game in the evening, nice.

kometfan

well i hope the frankes get a clue...if they want some fans they might push this game back....the conditions are horrible outside...we have about 6 or 7 inches of snow where im at...maybe more....and im south of fort wayne so ....who knows....id like to come but if roads are as bad as they are now im not riskin it to see some minor league hockey!@

FWKRTJ

Push it back? And cause everyone to be out til midnight watching a game when people have work six hours later?

That's not smart. Regardless, this stuff is pretty much over so the road crews have about 20 hours to work with it before the game tomorrow. You guys got snow...we got ice in Muncie. The snow will come up pretty easily.

Though, since the game hasn't been pushed by anyone except at exisiting games, I'm saying we'll have about 2,500 in the building tomorrow.

kometfan

I meant to another date...and yea.......let me say this we got our ice and then snow on top of it...no crews out....and i think only 1000 will show

Jerad Shaw

I would like to make the trip tomorrow. Not sure though. Going to the Hawks game on Friday so have to watch the cash flow!

Jungle Monkey

JugleMonkey will be in the house! I'm hoping for the weather to dampen the crowd on Sat so I can pick up a camo jersey at a lower price.

Hoss

Amen to that!!! How much do you think the camo jerseys will go for?

Jungle Monkey

Most folks I've talked to think that they are ugly. I'm still assuming that Chaulk, Dupuis and the like will go for $600+. I've 4-5 players that I hope slide under the radar. Being a one of a kind, it would be nice to pick one up, but I don't have that Justin Cohn kind of coin, so we'll have to wait and see..

Greg

Are they wearing those jersey's tonight? I thought it wasn't until the Sat game?

BTW I wouldn't mind a different game date as I am out of town and can't make the game anyway.

Just so everyone knows, I'm in Phoenix, AZ where it's been sunny with 70 degrees tepms.

Jerad Shaw

Greg, you attending any spring training games?

New Komet Fan

Good Luck to the Komets tonight! Wish I could go but am going to Blackhawks game tonight and see them whoop on some Ducks! I'll make sure to tell Todd Marchant his brother Terry said the Komets could beat the Ducks this year.

Jungle Monkey

Camo sweaters on Sat.

tj

I would like to take this time to talk about how much we should appreciate Justin Cohn and his professionalism. Brendan Savage is on ITB nit-picking and making fun of a typo on a post from a Komet fan....I would expect it from others but come on...he is supposed to be a "professional" journalist. Report your news and do your job.
Sorry, just my 2 cents.

Bubb Rubb

The Ducks will easily handle the hawks tonight. You might as well not even bother going.

Junior

The Hawks will dominate tonight on their home ice!!!!!

They took care of the North Stars last night, and are on a tear to meet the Deadwings in the 1st round of the playoffs.

BOOK IT!!

There's going to be more then a thousand people tonight, the roads aren't that bad.

Greg

Jared, no. I've went by most of the sites in the area but not to a game. I do have tickets to tomorrows Phoenix-Montreal game.

Ryne Gurney

Greg, i would take my snow day over your sunny and 70 any day, (i'm a golfer, so not really. But the roads should be clear well before game time, and the sun is out so the roads will just be wet. I predict 3500, but they will announce 5100

Greg

Ryan, all I can then is go Komets. Going hiking today up in the hills adter a while. Tehn got to get ready for church tonight.

Big debate going here on whether Glendale wants to bid to host the Super Bowl again in 2012. Glendale City Council thinks a lot of other communitites profttied from thier expense and wants to make sure that doesn't happen again.

St.Christopher

Cohny...nice topshelf goal yesterday thought I heard the walls at McMillen whisper "OVECHKIN".How about Friday? The "D" will be a little stronger though.

lovelost

I like what your saying Hit Somebody.
I think Aquino Curadeau and Woods. Chaulk Hukalo and Shafronov/Saidachev. Drouin, Marchant, and Reynolds. With Legault thrown in when needed. He needs more ice time to fight or not.

St.Christopher

If our record was dismal and pathetic and the team had no gel, I'd definately second guess Coach Sims and his line selection. Now, considering he's played alongside Bobby Orr the greatest D-man of all time,already won a championship in the IHL, coached at all levels of hockey including AHL and the NHL and has the best team in the IHL to date. Can't say I'd be critical of his line/shift selections.If I'm wrong I'll gladly eat crow, but I'm not qualified to question his hockey intellect, he'd definately beat me with experience.Different perspective, thats all.

Dusty

Well, after my move from VA Beach back to Indiana, I finally got my internet back up. I made it to a couple of games since Mid-Jan and I am going tonght...Hoss, Lets grab that beer. But I read through a couple of topics and then switched to see what Savage had to say....and I am not surprised by the way he is so unprofessinal with his writing. Check out todays post. After reading that, I hope the Komets run up the score and just pound them until they want to get back on the bus. Thats just me though. GO Komets.

kyle hunt

St.Christopher sounds like a sharp guy and Savage is an idiot.

hobo

Savage IS a moron...jealousy is a terrible thing

St.Christopher

Brothers' Hunt and Hobo.....AMEN!

kyle hunt

L.O.L.

Justin Cohn

OK, St. Christopher, first of all, thank you. I thought both my goals were breathtaking, but also counting only 1/2 each because everyone was gassed. But more importantly, I'm a little alarmed that I don't know which one is my on-ice stalker. Kidding. I think. Maybe.

mightbite

Where can I find savages blog ?

Justin Cohn

The funny thing about this is he's not ripping the Komets or even me anymore, he's taking shots at the city. I've had fun with Flint before, but I thought this was a little, well, decide for yourself.

http://blog.mlive.com/flintjournal/savagethoughts/

Jerad Shaw

Savage is trying to get some traffic his way to the blog. It's a shame his writing can't do that for him. Justin, are you going to be blogging from the game tonight?!?!? Stuck in Warsaw!

joehockeyman

is the game on radio ???

mightbite

That savages blog has no traffic= its like taking the back road to that AC/DC song =Highway to ----.

Jerad Shaw

Yeah on ESPN 1380

Jerad Shaw

The traffic Savage gets is when he makes a comment about Ft. Wayne. He knows that sparks the interest. That is why he does it.

Andy

I hate when komets are on when i have a exam the next day... I need to study, But Bob's sweet voice keeps pulling me back....I am going to fail this midterm and its the komets fault!

go K's

Jerad Shaw

I'm sure the Franke's will cover your summer session!!! :) No worries!

Justin Cohn

K's look good so far. It's tied at 1-1 after 1. A lot of end-to-end, odd-man rushes. Boucher had a great early save on a 4-on-1 rush, but he got beat by a 15-foot backhand shot that I think surprised him a little bit.

Jerad Shaw

Chaser was extremly excited about that Boucher save. Had to have been a good one!!!

Andy

Frankes paying for schooling??? HMMM Would i have to go to IPFW for that?

Jerad Shaw

They would probably pay as long as you aren't going to Ball State. That school doesn't produce productivity after graduation :)

Andy

Well, I am glad to be a Hoosier then. However, the guys from Ball State can make more trips to the Jungle easily in comparison to me :(
