I wish I had $1 for every person -- including several former Komets players and even a former front-office person from the IHL -- who have sent me text messages today asking, "What the heck is going on there?"
I hope to have better answers tonight. I know Mike Vaskivuo and Mickey Lang are waiting to see what the Komets say to decide if they want to say anything.
But we do know this: Sy Nutkevitch has been added to the roster and Jeremy Gates is back from his foot injury.
They will both play tonight against Toledo.
I will add this: Lots of people are calling for Gary Graham to lose his job, which reminds me of the old adage, "You can't let the inmates run the asylum."
I find it hard to believe that Graham is any more hated than Al Sims or Greg Puhalski were, and they won the last five championships here as coaches. Whatever is going on -- and I don't totally know -- seems to me to be a lack of leadership in the locker room.
Maybe new captain Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock can fix that, but can you imagine a tougher first day on the job than this?
At the end of the day, you're not playing for the coach or even the fans; you're playing for each other and, yes, a paycheck.
Anyway, we'll know more soon. I hope.
