In the wake of the collective bargaining agreement being ratified by the Central Hockey League and the players' association, did you notice the shots doled out toward the Komets?
Here's the problem with the ideas that the ability to have as many as eight veterans is either the fault of the Komets, or going to be an advantage for the Komets: They have only three veterans right now.
Those veterans are P.C. Drouin, Guy Dupuis and Leo Thomas.
I'm not saying the Komets aren't pleased with the ability to sign that many veterans, but I honestly don't see them going out and signing more than one more this season, and that would be Konstantin Shafranov. And he would just play a smattering of games.
In the end, I just think it's funny sometimes how people look for reasons to lambaste the Komets, even when they haven't done anything to deserve it ... yet.
