Last chance for some

Tonight is the season finale between the Komets and Kalamazoo Wings.

The list is long of players I don't think we'll see again here again as members of the Komets after this game. Most notably: Matt Syroczynski, Jamie Milam, Thomas Beauregard, Tyler Butler, Charlie Effinger and Jeff Deslauriers. I didn't add Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock just because I could see the Komets parting ways and him being a fill-in player because he lives in town.

Thoughts?

By the way, Eric Giosa separated his shoulder in the 3-2 loss to Kalamazoo on Friday -- yes, in that gruesome third-period hit -- and won't play tonight.
