Cohn had a very nice article about the Komets in this morning's Journal-Gazette. If you don't subscribe it may be a good thing to go buy one.
Maybe its just me but news from the front office has been pretty slow for the last month. It was refreshing to read a story about the team this morning.
I just can't help but be curious about the ramifications, both coming and going, when it comes to the "considerations" trades. I know it can be as simple as money, but before one wraps themselves around a roster, it would be nice to know what to expect.
I am excited about this team. I am looking forward to the season as it begins. I think the recruiting as been excellent and the quality of this camp seems as high as I can remember.
Everything starts very soon.

Looks like Tristan King will be a Komet! Another solid pickup!
37 points in 35 games with Idaho last year.

I'm sure people are paying attention but I can't help but wonder about a couple of things.
First regarding Paul McIlveen. I have to agree with JR and his comment above. A "confirmed transfer" on eliteprospects.com is a pretty reliable source.
Secondly, having Tristan King skating here with the others certainly leads me to believe he will be in training camp when it opens.
What I find a little unsettling is the question, why is King here and not in either Idaho or Allen? The Komets say they haven't reached an agreement ("still negotiating") with Dallas.
Then another question would be is Drew Olson the "future consideration" part of the Reichard trade with Florida (as Tampa Bay and Syracuse are affiliated with Florida)? Will they ship Olson's "rights" to Florida?
It kind of reminds me of the time when Leo Thomas was, all of a sudden, skating with the K's in practice as he was let go by Bloomington when Marty Standish was acquired by the (then) PrarieThunder. Remember?
I know that nothing is official as of now, but the thought of having both of these players is tantalizing.
Anybody know anything??
