The Weekend Warrior

by Randy Nicholson

Another in a series of weekly articles summarizing activity in Leafland during the previous 7 days – with some personal observations, commentary, prospect updates and fun thrown in for good measure.

Fanatical behavior: Just for the record, I heartily agree that the play of Ukrainian forward Dimitri Khristich has been routinely poor (and often bordering on pathetic) throughout the 2000/2001 campaign … that said, I will never understand the habit of booing a specific player each time he touches the puck – a strategy recently resumed by the faithful down at the ACC … as if that sort of treatment could possibly produce anything positive … does this action mean that the fans no longer support this particular Maple Leafs’ player and don’t want him to accomplish anything … the problem with this approach is that any attempt to mess up Khristich (who is still a part of the home side) is counter-productive when practiced by the team’s supposedly loyal supporters … the last Leaf to attract this sort of treatment was defender Larry Murphy and he was eventually dispatched to Detroit for purely humanitarian reasons in 1997 … if I’m not mistaken, Murphy has played a significant role on 2 Stanley Cup winners since that deal was made … no one is saying that we don’t have a right to express displeasure at what we see on the ice from time to time but this sort of treatment just seems cruel and pointless to me … after all, the Leafs really haven’t made too many missteps with their various personnel moves under the current regime …

IHL Living up to its Name

by Andrew Bourgeois
on
The IHL better known as the International Hockey League is living up to its International moniker.

A recent league analysis put the Canadian content, 145 of 250 players, in the IHL at 58%, down from last year’s 63.3%. As recently as 1995-96 it was 70.9% from our home and native land.

The American brigade make up 24%, just up from last year’s 23.8%, while there are 18% from outside North America, up from 14.4% in 1999-2000. In 1997, only 9.7% were non-North Americans.

All 11 teams have at least one foreigner, although Chicago is the only team with just one. Milwaukee has 10 from overseas, 10 Americans and just four Canadians. Appropriately enough, the Kansas City Blades, since they’re Vancouver’s farm club, have the most Canucks with 19.

The Manitoba Moose makeup consists of 15 Canadians, three Americans (D Brett Hauer, LW Rusty Fitzgerald and RW Scott Thomas) and two Europeans, Russian F Dmitri Leonov and Swedish G Johan Hedberg.

IHL FASTFACTS

On November 26, 2000 Wendall Young of the Chicago Wolves recored his franchise record 16th career shutout with a 3-0 win over the Utah Grizzlies.

TODAY IN HOCKEY

Tyler Dyck carving out his own niche

by Jeff Bromley
on
When Tyler Dyck first arrived in Cranbrook for his first full season in a Kootenay ICE uniform, along with him came expectations. Having been taken in the third round (39th overall) in the 1998 Bantam draft, Dyck had all the tools for success in the WHL. At the age of sixteen, the Calgary, Alberta native had the size at 6’3″, 202 lbs., the scoring touch and according to former teammate Kyle Wanvig, the strength to survive the rigors and style of play in the WHL.

Somewhere along the way Tyler Dyck’s role and immediate future with the Kootenay ICE changed rather dramatically.

In 1999-2000, his first full season in the WHL things didn’t exactly go according to plan. As a sixteen-year-old rookie it was expected that Tyler was going to get scant amounts of ice-time and rightly so, considering the depth the ICE had at center in what would be a championship year. Dyck did get into forty games in his rookie year but saw less ice-time than expected and the points weren’t exactly coming at a torrid pace, finishing the season with a goal and an assist.

At the beginning of the 2000-01 campaign, there were questions as to what role Tyler Dyck would assume with a year of seasoning under his belt. Suffice to say, that role probably wasn’t what most fans would’ve expected. Enter Tyler Dyck, banger, crasher and when the need arises, enforcer. “Last year was a bit of a transition year coming from Bantam,” said Dyck. “This year he’s (Coach Ryan McGill) got me on the third line banging and crashing. Me, along with Sinc and Hammy (line mates Colin Sinclair and Read more»
