I had the pleasure to go on the In The Crease podcast with the esteemed Greg Rajan. I hope you will listen, as we covered a variety of topics, ranging from the Komets' turnaround to "Youngblood" to the Winter Classic.
A couple of thoughts about the trade for Gerry Festa:
- Clearly, he made an impression with his 37 saves in a 4-2 loss at Fort Wayne last Thursday. I know Festa made an impression on me.
- I expect plenty of Festivus references when he plays.
- I guess this means Alex Kangas' injury is pretty bad.
- Tristin Llewellyn looked OK with the Komets but he was never going to find a spot in the lineup, not ahead of Jamie Lovell or David Starenky. I would expect the Komets to go find a rookie defenseman late in the season, just to have an extra rookie around.
