https://youtu.be/fW0k9_OOBuo So that we're all aware of my mental state coming into tonight's re-re-re-rematch between the Utica Comets and the Syracuse Crunch--the above video is where my head is presently at, and it's giving me life. And maybe, just maybe, the good vibes I'm feeling tonight will travel 4700 kilometres eastward to the Adirondack Bank … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Rematches and Reconnected Controllers

The Comets are two days removed from a tough return-to-action this past weekend—a weekend in which they picked up losses to both the Rochester Americans and the Syracuse Crunch. On Friday, against the Amerks, the Comets dominated play for most of the first two periods. Unfortunately, evaporating energy levels led to some poor defensive coverage, … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: Multi-Point Madness!
A quick turnaround for the Utica Comets as they return to action for the first time in a month with a back-to-back. I'm not sure what the impetus was to jamming the Comets schedule with games? Including last night's game against Rochester, the Comets are in the midst of a four-in-six stretch; they play eleven … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: First Blood Part 2
Nah, it hasn't been that long, but it has been 30 days exactly since the last time the Utica Comets took the ice to face off against an opponent.

Admirable Bone-to-pick: https://twitter.com/CodySevertson/status/1368801701893795841?s=20 So was everyone going to keep watching me pump out charts with the wrong season listed for the entire year without saying anything!? This entire time, I had been posting charts dated 2019-20?!?! "Why didn't anyone tell me!? I've been making an idiot out of myself!" THE SEASON IS A FLAT … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: ROCHE5TER @ UTICA
The Rath of Bone https://twitter.com/CodySevertson/status/1367187592274317313?s=20 It was quite the weekend debut for Rack Jathbone! Four points in two games, with three of the four coming at 5v5. I mean, what more can I say. Besides his actual offensive production, the guy has NHL speed and skating, vision, and defensive play. There were times in Friday's … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: The AHL is a Flat Circle

Damn, Utica! Back at it again with dem back-to-backs! I glowed about this young Comets teams' 5v5 play in my latest prospect update; Just a few days later, the Comets saw departures of several key figures to the St. Louis Blues.

They've only played five games. There's been a sandwiching effect on the talent-level, AHL-wide, due to the advent of Taxi-Squads. Including the Utica Comets, there has been significant evaporation of top-level players, plus a thrust/influx of lesser and inexperienced talent up and into the bottom and middle of AHL lineups. Maybe, they are too young … Continue reading Jumping to Conclusions: An Early Dive into the Stats of the Canucks AHL Prospects!
