Olli has miraculously managed to avoid serious injury so far this season which we should probably consider a small victory in itself. He is still making his customary eye popping outlet passes but has added a steady defensive game to his arsenal including becoming something of a shot blocking machine. He is used on both specialty teams and is usually paired with Chatfield or Blujus this year. Still, his glacier-like mobility will hold him back from an NHL career if he doesn't recover a couple of steps from all of his injury woes.

Rafferty appears somehow to get by just fine with one eye. Going forward that is, that guy is always on the break out, even when the opposition is on the attack sometimes. He is nearly as bad defensively as he is brilliant on offense. A highly entertaining player, more fun to watch than a barrel of monkeys really. He really needs to iron out his problems in his own end to be a serious candidate for promotion though imvho. Guys like Sautner, Breezy and Chatty would be ahead of him in the pecking order in that regard right now although, it is just possible that playing in the NHL might actually help mask some of those defensive shortcoming in the superior structure of the Canucks vs the run and gun game of the Comets.
Nice! Thanks Mega.

Even his detractors want to see Olli play in the 'Chel soon.

The fans here only hear about and see Rafferty's offensive highlights, so it's nice that there are Utica fans who are more honest in their assessment of our prospects. We probably should temper our expectations when Pouliot and Clendening are right up atop the scoring leaders.
Try to focus on THIS year...

One guy who is flying under the radar this year is Jonah Gadjovich. If you check the Utica scoring stats you'll find that he has ten goals in thirtyish games and this while playing mostly fourth line minutes with very little pp time. No longer the frightened bambi who was thrown around by the scruff of the neck by little Bobby Farnham last season; big Jonah has been quick to get in on the forecheck and throw his weight around with his improved (albeit still awful) skating and to drop his gloves to protect his teammates (around half of his modest pm total is fighting majors). He sort of reminds me of one of those video game characters that keeps adding weapons as it goes along ie better skating, aggression, big shot/goal scoring....

Shame he can't seem to shake the injury bug though. Dude is always getting banged up.

Hey everyone. Just signed up. I've kinda been following the Comets the past two seasons on AHLtv and thought I might jump in here once get an avatar uploaded. However it seems like that is going to take some time.

We'll see you in a few weeks or months, hopefully. Cheers. ;)

Haha thanks Doyle. I do try to keep it light and breezy.

I see you guys knew about Eddy Punch Clock passing well before we did over there. Awful thing that, Eddy was the best.

RIP

2-2 score mid second vs the Rocket in Laval. Comets goals by Francis Perron on a nice backhand goalmouth setup from Jonah Gadjovich, returning to the lineup from injury tonight,and Guillaume Brisebois on a wrister from the point.
