The news on Galbraith

March 14, 2006

It’s pretty good actually. He’s going to be out 3-4 weeks and will need surgery. He has a torn meniscus in his knee which is the same injury Kevin St. Pierre suffered in December last season. Lance will be able to go in the playoffs, and there’s a pretty good chance he will play few enough regular-season games that he won’t qualify for veteran status next season.

“He’ll feel a lot better,” Komets trainer Shawn Dundon said. “That will be a little bit of a relief. He’d have a lot of problems if he tried to play through it right now. He’s not going to be as beat up going into the playoffs.”

    Geez….I think I’ll wait for a couple of dudes to post something before I take my turn. I feel like I am interupting something……

  9. Tony E Says:

    Actually Blake I think most of us on the male side of the room would say that we have spent our entire lives trying to figure out female demographics!

    So far it seems like everybody was dealing today but us. No suprise really we never do; but I thought this year they might make one or two moves to fill some holes. I know they were’nt gonna be blockbusters but still…. and did anyone else notice that roanoke traded one of the guys they got for DAB right back to danbury…..???????

  11. Hit Somebody!!! Says:

    The State of the UHL is definitely fishy. The guys traded to Roanoke from Danbury were also guys on the IR list.

    Why can’t this team justify making an impact trade or acquisition to improve our chances. Should we read into this that making no move means that they have quit and figure whats the point this year? Surely they could of done something more to help this team over the past couple of weeks. I know what everyone is going to say. That we don’t want to mess with Chemistry, and that things really aren’t that bad. We really haven’t had to compete too much with the studs in this league of late. Those teams are better than us, and what did they do, add more talent. Someone try and explain to me why as Komet fans we shouldn’t expect more from this organization? Or we hurting for money? Do we want to give the team the best chance to win?

    Who out there is satisfied with the current team compared to Rockford, Muskegon, Danbury, and K-Zoo? Be honest.

    I am not Hit, I am with you, not trying to get Littlejohn when everyone thought would be a longshot prove not to be and a team who is 1 point behind us comes up with a deal and gets him. They just got a little tougher, more grit, and a guy who can put the puck in the net. But I am sure we will be active in the Junior or College market….

  13. Hit Somebody!!! Says:

    Yes, College/Junior player, here’s an idea:
    Let’s bring in a guy named Mike Wiggins from a small college who has awesome numbers, then rave about how he is such a fine prospect. Then bring him in next year, start the season out losing and falling behind the rest of the league by 20 points, blame Mike (rookie) for not being tough enough or tall enough, trade him to Roanoke for what was billed as the answer for our defensive problems, Matt Kenny. And then release Matt Kenny after 2 games without hardly even giving him a chance. Then when Mike Wiggins scores 30 goals, we will all say, “well it is because he plays on a bad team and he couldn’t play on our team because we are so good and yada yada yada…”

    Oh, we all ready did that one didn’t we. Is that the kind of wait and see we will do for a Junior or College guy that is going to take us to the next level this year or next year. We find them, groom them, and trade them for nothing. Great plan.

    Amen!
