ALL, and I mean All, the changes announced today, do not affect the "skill" of the team.
The cap space(Tuzzolino) and the roster space (Firman and Lyon) only lesson the dead weight on this roster. Now, maybe, that space may be taken by legitimate players that may contribute to the success of the team.
It's a chance for Franke and Graham to do a do-over without gutting this team.

It should be "lessen" not "lesson".
That's what happens when you begin to drink again.

This should not shock anyone, when a player struggles this early, this bad it's time for a change.
I haven't been to a home game but watched several of the road games, they need some work in their own end and getting guys out in front of the net. I've read many comments on the blog about the defense not being physical and that's what I have noticed so far as well.
Hopefully for the team, there's one or two players they can bring in that can help "gel" this team. I also think Marino should be named as the new Captain.

I believe Lyon's suspension is for removing his elbow pads before his fight last nite.

I was wrong...i guess he doesn't want to be a tough guy...

Lyon's quit the team because he did not want to be the 10th forward. That is what I was told but who knows.

Maybe before they pay cash for a player they should find out if they role they have for him is a role he'll be willing to play...might have saved them some money

IMO, you don't just quit. period. request a trade, put your time in, prove yourself in practice, and at game time. you do not quit.

You don't look at a guy like Lyon and grab him for his goal scoring ability. Even his stats pointed to the fact that he was a tough guy. Because he suddenly decides he wants to be a legitimate all star is not the fault of the Komets.
