I've had a lot of people asking when the Komets will make a decision -- either way -- on the future of coach Al Sims.
While the Komets have said they are in no rush, and that it could be weeks before we hear, I have to wonder why that is.
I find it surprising they don't know. In other words, what is going to happen in the coming days that is somehow going to change their mind either way on Sims?
Sims has won five championships with the Komets. Because of that, I hope they don't leave him blowing in the wind too long.
I have to believe that waiting is designed to see who else is out there. Maybe they want to talk to some people after playoffs in the ECHL, CHL and Southern Professional Hockey League are completed.
Something to consider is this: Since the Frankes have owned the Komets, they've never fired a coach in the postseason. The coaches who have moved on -- people like Greg Puhalski, Pat Bingham and Dave Allison -- did it because they wanted to do so.
The coaches fired by the Frankes -- Dave Farrish and Bruce Boudreau -- were axed during the season. So, this is uncharted territory.
It's worth noting that Pensacola of the SPHL won the title tonight, which means now the Komets can chase Fort Wayne-native and former Komets assistant coach Gary Graham, if that's something in which they are interested.
