    Yep, Guess your done for the year. lol.

    I like a Defensman of the Week type award. I am a fan of the dmen and third line forwards, so you’re talking right up my alley. I think that it wouldn’t be that difficult. With some of the dmen in this league it should be a no-brainer.

  2. eric_smiff Says:

    A pre-game show
    Have the orange collar card be your ticket so you would have only one card to get in and get your OCC points so you would not have to worry if the wife remembered the tickets.

  3. chuckitt Says:

    dont know what thats got to do with it but blake youre exactly correct! dmen need an award too and i t wouldnt take much of anything to set it up. do the weekly and monthly winners of the other awards get a trophy or cash or anything? if they do then all the commish has to do is strongarm someone, i mean ask someone to sponsor it and its a go!!

  4. Burgee Says:

    I fully support this and why wouldn’t the UHL. Something else for the players to put on their resume for the NHL / AHL to see.

    The shootout idea is good as well.

    Can’t wait for next season to see what else you can come up with.

    p.s. next time could you black out a couple of teeth or something, we want our hockey reporters to look really mean.

  5. Tony E Says:

    Why is the ORANGE collar card WHITE?
    As far as the award, maybe it comes down again to money? If a company was willing to pony up the money to sponsor a D-man of the week (or month) award I am sure the UHL would not hesitate to have one.
    As far as shootouts, yes home team should have a choice and I hope they keep it at 5 skaters instead of going the route of the NHL.

  6. hsiri Says:

    These are your big ideas? Keep working on it kid or just stick to your day job.

  7. Rick Says:

    I am with you, Blake, but you need to add a 5-minute 4-on-4 sudden death OT before the dreaded shootout.

  8. Greg Says:

    No 4 on 4, just go stright to the shoout out. Why keep people longer than necessary. If you go 4 on 4 then cut the shoot out down to three aside.

  9. Jungle Monkey Says:

    Go to 4on4 and open the beer stand back up! Works for me!

  10. Greg Says:

    Well in that case let’s play til someone scores or the beer runs out;-)

  11. Blake Says:

    Actully, hsiri, I said they were small ideas. I don’t write the headlines.

  12. hsiri Says:

    You don’t write the headlines huh? The title is called “I’ve” got big ideas. Did I a miss something? So you don’t have that much power at work? Is that why you try to run this blog, to have some control and power? It seems like you have stolen some of your ideas from the NHL. Please be more original.

  13. Greg Says:

    Someone got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. I thought the idea for the d-man is a good one Blake.

  14. hobo Says:

    so hsiritydhe where are you from…flint, quad city, missouri? why do u get on here to bash blake?

  15. JungleMonkey Says:

    Because hsiri must not have much power at work. His wife probably makes him dust his minature spoon collection against his will every week, and trying to “big time” Blake makes him feel better about himself… Just a guess.

  16. Blake Says:

    Guys, it’s not a big deal. He’s allowed his opinion as long as he doesn’t call me Cardboard Cutout or Pulcrapski.

  17. hob Says:

    ahhh you may be on to something JM. but i dont think the miniature spoon collection is his, i think its hers.

  18. Greg Says:

    Still doesn’t mean we can’t defend you Blake.

  19. eric_smiff Says:

    What about “Nothing at all”

  20. hobo Says:

    you’re my boy blake

  21. Hit Somebody!!! Says:

    Good ideas Cardboard Reporter and Blog King. LOL

    Only thing I disagree with in your article…is that a fine player once said:

    “Yes, BLAKE is a SUPER fan, just kidding I am sure he loves the the game of hockey just like the rest of us.”….Colin Chaulk

    Super Fan…stop denying you don’t pull for the Komets. It is ok Mr. Sebring…we won’t hold it against you. It is kind of like Mascots don’t talk…I have heard plenty of them say things. LOL

  22. Hit Somebody!!! Says:

    I hope that when the Komet’s market the Chicago Hounds game in November and for the New Years Eve Game…they refer to our former fearless leader as “Nothing At All.” Kind of catchy if you ask me…because even though we are led to believe that we should worship the ground he walks on because he is some sort of coaching legend here (even though he was always given the best talent)….you know the Komet’s are going to market the crap out of those games as the return of “The Former Coach.” Because no matter what spin you want to put on it…him coming back will sell more tickets than him coaching our team…Just a thought…go ahead, take a number and pile on me at will. LOL

  23. paulsy Says:

    Maybe it should be “GQ” night and we all go to Goodwill and buy a shirt and tie.

    OHIC update…..
    Komet Warrior still in mens room at Meijer looking for his next update MAN!

  25. Tony E Says:

    Wow Blake!
    Now you have a friend on the board just like I do! LOL with friends like these who needs enemas. (sorry Hit, just had to use it)

  26. Blake Says:

    Hit, I put that line in the story specifically for you, knowing you’d get the biggest kick out of it. It was my shout out to Hit!

  27. Hit Somebody!!! Says:

    So do we take that as a no comment or are you finally going to admit it? You could go to FA (Fanaholics Anonymous) meetings and get yourself on the right track you know. “HI, I’m Blake….I am a Super Fan of the Komets”…..LOL

  28. Hoss Says:

    I say the 4 on 4 is the best! Why take out peices of the game just to finish? Next your say college football is thinking about taking away kickoffs when they go into OT????

    Greg, if you don’t want the teams to play an overtime since it will keep you longer than you want to be there, maybe we can talk the UHL into having a “Coin Flip” night and the game will start with the Captins comming out to center ice and calling heads or tails. The winner of the flip wins the game! Then we all go home happy and early…

  29. Blake Says:

    Hoss, you realize they already have done away with OT kickoffs, right?

  30. Greg Says:

    Good one Blake,

    And the UHL hasn’t had four on four at least since the Komets have been in the league so there’s nothing to take out. That would be an “addition”.

  31. Hit Somebody!!! Says:

    Didn’t Brosal say that “addition is subtraction” in this Elite Professional AA Hockey League?

  32. Hoss Says:

    I guess people don’t pick up on jokes unless you put the dumb LOL after them?

    I was saying that just having a shootout is taking away the defence just as college football takes out the kickoff and field poss. If you get the ball in field goal range, how hard is it to score at least three? It would be like having a freethrow “shootout” to end a basketball game or the next baseball game we could bring out a dunk tank for each team to throw at for the win instead of going extra innings.

  33. chuckitt Says:

    give me overtime anyday. cheerleaders. yankee world championships. colonial cups. cold budweiser. colder budweiser. fun times. fun blogs. good night all, must get back to the mets game!

  34. Tony E Says:

    Personally I really don’t like the shootout. Sure it is fun and exciting but I still think it is like ending a tied baseball game by having a home run derby.

  35. Tony E Says:

    I know what you guys would like…instead of a shootout to decide the game each team picks 5 guys who fight one on one. Last man standing wins it for the team 😉

  36. blake Says:

    Nah, Tony, they’d rather see the coaches go at it! My money would be on Kris Waltze and Bruce Ramsay. I was thinking about this the other day that there are a bunch of coaches in this league would were not shy about dropping them. Martinson, Bingham, Curran, Kerr. I still get a kick out of the story that Bawa told me that Bingham was brought to Kamloops to protect HIM.

  37. ilovehockey Says:

    I would have to agree that there should be maybe a 15 minute OT played, then a shootout, if necessary. I’ve always thought the shootout was a crummy idea. Sure it’s exciting, but to come down to maybe that one guy scoring to win, when that team played like crap that night, and just gets lucky with a good shot? Give me OT!!!
