Once again, home ice advantage, league title on the line and UC lays an egg. How does a team with so many players returning from the final four team of a year ago choke at home?

good goalie ,good forwards, defence sucked!, no upper arm strength, couldn't hit the net with a slap shot when they did try one , wrist shots my grandmother could stop,#5 belongs on a house squirt team , terrible job of recruiting except for #6, I believe it will be 3 to 4 years before were back to a ecacw winning team. No coffman or chalanda type players on this team were done..........

A REAL hockey team?...Comets just got to .500; playoff shot is remote at best. Must be your (that's an intentional misspelling for YOUR benefit) one of those beer drinkin' good ol' boys who gets off on fights and lives vicariously by wearing your unwashed Comets jersey. Always been jealous of "them kolleg edjacated boys"- can't be real hockey players unless they drop the gloves. Why compare the two programs? Apples and oranges. But I understand. Just pray they never require a spelling test to buy Comets tickets.

Very disappointing. The stupid penalties were a factor. Heanenís style sucks. Crashing the boards with three forwards never leaves anyone available in front of the net if and when a cross does make it. The shots from the point were more often than not wide and high and power play a joke. Crashing the boards and power play is all on the coach. Our guys are making ten three foot passes on the PP and then get a lousy shot blocked or taken away. Some PPís get no shots off. UC rarely scores pretty or easy, mostly scrums in front of the net.
No NCAA tournament announced today. The two early loses to slugs like Morrisville and Nazereth with the Elmira lose guaranteed no tourney.

Been to several Comets games; not sure where your educated and wealthy ticket holders are, but an awful lot of knuckle draggers and faded sweatshirts at the beer concessions, same story in the Horton Room. As far as my angle goes, I don't see any point to bad-mouthing UC's program in praise of the Comets; they are two separate programs with distinctly different goals (no pun intended). And judging by many of the posts that have been written, there seems to be a significant number of "hockey fans" that view college hockey in general and UC hockey in particular as deficient due to a lack of fighting. Your reference to "horny college kids" proves my point.(Not sure you've ever seen some of the Comets after a game at local watering holes, but UC players are not the only ones "looking to get laid".) Your generalization about college students demonstrates the same prejudice and ignorance I'm referring to in my original post.

College education necessary for success? Maybe not, but statistics say yes. Learning basic spelling and grammar?? That's usually considered a prerequisite for successful communication and positive impressions.
So, let's examine your post:
Three times YOUR instead of YOU'RE-that's 4th grade grammar.
PEOPLE'S not PEOPLES-you must have missed that lesson on possessives in elementary school.
ITS instead of IT'S-common writing error in 6th grade.
A shallow person, not AN

Yep, YOU'RE a Comets fan, alright. And spare me the usual blabber about posting using language short cuts. That's just a cover up for being lazy, ignorant or both.
Not surprised that you'd equate success with income; education doesn't appear to be your strong suit. Spelling lesson for tonight:
Silent consonants, as in dumbass.

ERRORS...not ERROR'S
GRAMMAR...not GRAMMER
And once again, please don't use the lame "topix" excuse for your ignorance; it's clear that I touched a nerve.
Bank tellers "handle" millions too.
Take some of that million dollars you "handle" each month and invest in some basic language skills. Then you might be able to keep some of the money you handle.

Another country heard from. Not sure why you would conclude that I have no friends; quite untrue. Also untrue that I'm on topix 27/7. There are actually many well educated people in the area (and they all can spell correctly) who, like me, enjoy posting to tweak uneducated, ignorant individuals like you who own a phone that's smarter than you are. And I'm quite happy, because even though you "couldn't care less", the fact that you answered at all would indicate that I've been successful in getting you to take the bait. But I'll agree with you on one item-I also hope that the aud continues to be rehabbed; that way, whether the Comets stay or go, the facility is there for the UC program.And I hope you never face having to write any sort of response w/out your smartphone; you obviously would be lost w/out it. Keep responding, Skippy; you're just fanning the flames!

Who Cares??? Its Division III Hockey.

Its left over players that couldnt get Div 1 Scholarships. They dont go anywhere. Ever.

Comets in one year have already had 5 players called up to NHL.

Support the Comets.
