Komets forward Chris Auger has been quite a find for the Komets this season. Click here to read today's story on him.
- I love this: The Bloomington Distractions. I just wish we had a little more insight as to why players seem to be jumping ship. The Blaze got a late start and the league had to hold its hands in operations. But is this this just a front-office problem? Or, is it a coaching issue? I've written this countless times: This market should have worked, but it's been so mismanaged that I don't know if it's been ruined for AA hockey.
- Remember, I'm on Twitter: @jgkomets.
- Speaking of Twitter, I was told last night that CHL commissioner Duane Lewis was saying the league was looking into a return to Colorado, after the Eagles moved to the ECHL last summer. Not knowing where this expansion would take place, I am fearful they would be thinking Denver. If so, does no one remember the Columbus Stars of the UHL? A first-place team under Malcolm Cameron, it folded mid-season. AA hockey cannot work in an NHL town. The ECHL team in Chicago will find this out. The CHL should, in my opinion, be most concerned right now about keeping its current lineup. But if it is looking to expand, I can think of better markets. Ahem, Traverse City, Mich.
