Here's a great question

OK, in the comments section, tell me the former Komets player you most want to see win a championship in the ECHL season.

And tell me why.

Your options are:

-- Stephon Thorne in Toledo

-- Bryant Molle in Reading

-- Tom Mele in Alaska

-- Dustin Molle in Alaska

-- Brent Henley in Florida

Personally, I'm going Mele. I feel like he never got a fair chance in Fort Wayne. Remember all those games last season he barely got on to the ice, and then he was great in the playoffs and they still didn't bring him back. He's been with Alaska all season long -- even when they had NHLers -- and it would be cool for him to win another Cup.
