I'm out at Memorial Coliseum watching Miami (Ohio) practice, in preparation for its Saturday game in the Midwest Regional against Alabama-Huntsville.
I happen to be watching with some members of the Komets, and I asked them whether they would defeat college hockey's top team in a game.
They said, as I believe, the Komets would win.
Why? Even though the college teams have a lot of speed and skill, they don't have the veteran savvy or the systems. As one of the Komets told me: "Could you imagine these guys trying to solve Konstantin Shafranov?"
It's a fun debate. I think it would be a close game.
