I was there,it was a close game ! One excellent check was delivered by Darren Archibald that sent an opposing player summersaulting in the air. Good crowd for a weeknight. I had a great time.

Was a decent game, not great. Comets got running around on the first and third goals. But other than that they played ok. Didn't mount much offence till the third period. Its a tight league, anyone can win on any given night. Part of the learning experiences the team needs to go through. Its not about winning every game. If that's all you care about then go watch Utica college play half a league of nobody's......

Robby... really...c'mon man you really need to take a long hard look in the mirror. Did you really just come on Topix 30 seconds after the horn sounded to bash the Comets? Seriously, take a step back and think about it.

Now after you had a chance to reflect please come back on Topix and tell us what you found out about yourself.
Go Comets

"Half a league of nobodies" (not nobody's-your lack of language skill is noted.) Yep, I'll bet watching a game that features D-3 college athletes (whose primary goal (no pun intended) is to get an education isn't your cup of tea. Based on your spelling expertise, my guess is that college educated people make you nervous. You're an excellent representative of the Comets' mentality. Knowledge for you is like kryptonite for Superman. Must be tough to be just smart enough to realize just how dumb you really are.

The only way Utica is going to sustain an ahl team is to really be innovative with the aud updates this year. They have to really create more seating for the times we do sell out to bump up our average attendance. They need to utilize the stage area. I wonder if they can make an elevated small restaurant there sort of like vernon downs set up where you eat and watch with a separate entrance for codes purposes with along with the suits. Or put seating of a few hundred there. I love the inside but to really compete they have to update the outside a lot and spend some money doing so cause it gives a terrible first impression. You are surprised when you do go in. The only reason i say this is because if you look at places other teams play at they are much more modern but if the aud gets work it can compete. Syracuse is a dump

I was reading an article out of Vancouver where a writer came down to utica watch the comets and had some good things to say about the aud saying there was more people there then go to the abbotsford heats arena which is going to try and get the comets soon but said the aud was very small. The aud also needs new colored lights to light the ice blue and green when they announce the players. Little stuff like that. We will definitely get another team if they leave. Im not complaining and so far esche has done great I'm just saying they got to make the money count now on the outside and be creative with ideas like mine or their own. Those were just examples. Does anyone know the plans

actually I don't care for uc hockey because its slow paced games, inferior talent. And the crowd is made up of mostly bored college students wasting a couple of hours before they can get laid. Its a boring atmosphere. Half the fans no nothing about hockey. The comets crowd is much more knowledgeable about the game and gets behind the team and cheers them on. Only time there's any noise at a uc game is when they score.

well i hate to burst your bubble fruit loop, but the comets have a lot of players who have graduated from schools of higher learning a hell of alot better than utica college.Alex Biega is a graduate of Harvard, Ben Ferriero from Boston college,Joe cannata from merrimack,colin stewart from colorado college,david marshall, quinnipiac. patrick Mullen, university of denver,Brandon Defazio from clarkson. what you dont get is the fact that as a whole, hockey players are smarter and more articulate than athletes from the other major sports. i have no clue why you think that utica college players are smarter that the comets player. the comets are already out of college. and they attended better schools than uc......

seems to me that anyone that can afford 15-20 bucks for seat at a comets game must be smart enough to have a good paying job. I see a lot of successful people at comets games. Doctors, lawyers, business owners. Don't know what your problem is. But you have some issues for sure...

i really dont think they will be able to do anything at the stage end unless they move all the ice making equimpent and heating system.if they do that its a ways off. the out side ids being done this coming summer. there are plans for a resturant and bathrooms ect, but what schedule that is on i dont know. if it were my decision id do the bathrooms before the suites. building still needs alot of work, but 3-4 years from now she will be a gem!!! but at some point they will need to add seats if the AHL will survive here. and i agree, the syracuse rink isnt much, i didnt care for it at all.....

I wish the Comets well, Utica is a tough market. The rink really does need seats at the stage end though, it looks a bit strange without them.
