I spoke with several Komets players over the last couple days and they are pleased with the moves to bring Brent Henley and Jamie Lovell in, though I don't anticipate either being in the lineup Saturday.
The players I spoke to -- who shall remain nameless -- warned that no one should think either Henley or Lovell will be "saviors," but that they solidify what is clearly the weakest part of the team -- the blue line.
The one concern I heard voiced several times: The bad penalties that Henley has sometimes been prone to giving up.
This clearly sets up some battles to stay on the roster, though. I don't think it's any secret that David Starenky and Tristin Llewellyn can't afford to play poorly right now.
