Kzoo just stole two points from us tonight! The K-Wings shouldn't of even gained a point against us. As I mentioned, they were playing with 5 d-men and two of them were forwards back there. Kattelus is one of there top forwards and there leading scorer was sent up to the AHL.
Below these guys were out of there line up. Forward: Yanni Gourde (AHL) 34 pts. Defense: Sam Ftorek (suspended) 17 pts. Defense:Mike Matzak (AHL) 10 pts. Defense: Jeremie Blain (AHL) 5 pts.
The K's didn't take advantage of a team a few points ahead of them in the standings that was depleted to the max. Does it come down to a lack of talent and depth?
How in the heck did no body go after the Kzoo player after he ran Makarov?!?!?!?! Has this team turned the corner?? No, they have turned their head to standing up for there own teammates. This crap is pathetic. Spin it Gary, Spin it David! Spin it Kaptain Kaleigh!

How do you not put the hammer down on the man who ran the goalie and put him out for ???
I don't get the modern hockey player!?
For all the talk about the team gelling and heart, there was a lot of "why I ought a" and NO actual sticking up for your teammate tonight.
Very disappointed tonight.

This team is pathetically soft. I can stand losing games. But where is the heart and having each other's backs? Our goalie was run almost every night and nothing happens. Tonight it finally caught up. Not one person stood up and took control. It's not always about fighting or even winning a fight. It's about sticking up for your team. We have no one on this team that will do anything. Just a little talk when the linesman are there. It is very sad watching our team get walked over every night. We have a talented offense and we lose every game by getting out played physically and it never stops. Even Smith stuck up for his teammates every night and he was the smallest guy in the league. I would rather lose every game and every player on the ice having each other's back and playing hard.

Sorry Justin, I'm gonna call out something you said here.
"Chaulk had wanted to be an assistant with the Komets but went to the Wings to work for head coach Nick Bootland, after Fort Wayne didn’t offer him the job."
You're saying the reason he left is because he wasn't offered the assistant coach's job? Weren't we told he was gunning for the HEAD coaching job? If all he wanted was the assistant job, I'm willing to bet the Frankes might have kept him. I'm guessing because Graham was always going to be the guy they were gonna hire, Chaulk wasn't ever going to be considered for the head coach job and I sincerely doubt he was going to take a backseat to Graham.
I know, I know. He took an assistant job to Bootland, but who's to say that Bootland isn't going to be hired as an AHL coach of some sort next season, leaving Chaulk to take over? Either way, he's in a much better position than he would be here. He has to be laughing at this "organization" this season.
This whole thing stinks to me, and judging by the fans now, it stinks to everyone else too.

Szydlowski was a fighter in juniors...he was on the ice when Taylor ran Makarov....why is Szydlowski not fighting and standing up for teammates like he did in juniors?
Is this Gary's systems? Is thus David's BS rules?
Someone please get to the bottom of what the problem is.....
If I gear Gary Graham tell us that the team played soft because it was a "tight-checking" game one more time....I will puke.
Gary Graham, who are you crappin?
