The game was pretty good tonight except for the outcome. Both teams played hard and you can't complain about that. The Aud looks great and some of the Comet cheerleaders sure brighten up the game. I'm just glad hockey is back in Utica.

tonights game was very entertaining. Comets came on hard in the third. Everyone knew it would take 20- 30 games for the team to come together. The ahl is a very competitive league. There's not much difference between winning and losing. If the comets were getting beat by 4 or 5 goals a night it would be different. They do need to play more physical. The ahl isn't like the league uc is in where there's teams that looses 12 games a year 7-1. Both Rochester and Texas teams had a lot of high end prospects who have a year or two of ahl experience. That was the difference these past two games.

But what has it really advanced the area beyond the friends and family that Brindisi and Griffo arranged deals with? Zip. Grade A Doofus distractions.
Helps the beer crowd pass the time?

your clueless, its entertainment. the comets have great interaction with the fans.fan cam, trivia contest with a kid, kissing cam, give giveaways. its called promotions and promoting your product. what do you want them to do, be like the devils, who had no fan interaction other than score-o??? thats why they didnt make it in utica, they couldnt promote their product. the comets haven't won a home game yet and they are averaging over 3200 fans a game. the devils never even came close to that average. go back to your weekend mall walking and stalking playgrounds.........

Exactly! The Comets don't display any sense of urgency...hey what's one more loss....
I'm a fan, and I appreciate the fact that it takes time playing together, to get the results people are expecting, but the Comets need to be more aggressive. Sure you don't want to be taking on penalties, but you can't accept BEING PUSHED AROUND "IN YOUR OWN HOUSE!"
Texas did very well at passing the puck, and setting up plays. So for god sake,HIT some people, make them aware you're there, and they'll be less focused on the puck....less likely to take a position where they keep getting hit....it's part of the game.

People, they are not good with no talent. Is this hard to understand? Team stinks, city stinks and owner DuRoss is a con loser.

Need to get a goon for the Comets squad. If you can't win then at least have some good fights to get the crowd more into the game. Old Clinton Comets hockey always had a few good fights almost every game...

your living in the past, there's no room in today's NHL or AHL for goons. its a different game, built on speed, skill and toughness. you put a knuckle dragging goon on the ice today and he simply wont be able to keep up with the speed of the game. that's why there are none today. the comets do need to play more physical and carry the game at home, they seem to wait and see what happens. im sure green will get 40 games to prove himself.

They need to shoot more instead of over passing the puck. They leave way to manny shots that they could have had and even pass on breakaways
Exactly what I thought

And they're getting great support for a team that has only won two games. Imagine what attendance will be like when they start winning.

thats pretty much a sign of a team with not a lot of confidence in their scoring ability. they are always trying for the perfect shot instead of shooting and crashing the net. they want pretty goals instead of dirty goals. but they have a ton of young player who just need to play and learn what it takes to win. the games are entertaining, and the fan support is there.

Maybe Vancouver can loan Utica the notorious Tom Sestito for a few home games. Perhaps get "Nasty" Mirasty on loan from wherever he may be nowadays. I say get rid of Green as coach and rock the Aud! Remember Serge Roberge?
