Home not so sweet for Kootenay

by Jeff Bromley

The good news is that the Kootenay ICE have resurrected their road game record and seemed to have solved the problems that plagued the club earlier on in the season while away from the Cranbrook Rec./Plex.

The problem now is that the club isn’t on the road and won’t be for another two weeks.

After Wednesday’s loss to the Swift Current Broncos and a weekend that featured an ugly win over one of the WHL’s supposed weaker teams in Seattle and a woefully inadequate defensive effort that saw them on the wrong end of a 3-1 decision against the Regina Pats, being on the road is a place the club just might want to be. In a reversal of fortune that’s seen the boys of white, bronze and royal blue drop three of their last four home dates, the news doesn’t get any better as the ICE still have three games left in a season-long, six-game home stand that doesn’t feel much like home.

For Kootenay Coach Ryan McGill, the problem of consistency, or lack of it, from his club has been an issue that’s been a work in progress over most of a season that isn’t so young anymore. Having played twenty-nine games, the ICE are well past the quarter-pole and are creeping up on the halfway mark in the season. It is an issue that, in Coach McGill’s eyes has to be settled sooner rather than later. “Finally, with (the two losses) we lost at home,” said McGill after the loss to Regina last Sunday. “Ever since we got home from the road trip we haven’t played that well and we’ve got away with it.”

From the Editor: News and Notes

by Mark Fischel

To start off, I want to extend a heartfelt thanks to all of our regular readers who visit us regularly, some even several times a day. One thing that I keep noticing is that this site has quite a family atmosphere with several hundred of you making your presence felt on the HFBoards site, comments on the articles, or in letters to our staff.

Our goal for Hockey’s Future is to provide a place for hockey fans of every level to come and get the hard-to-find information on their favorite prospects, teams, and leagues. For the most part, we feel that we have been successful in giving you more information than ever before on your favorite subjects, but we don’t intend to stop there.

Coming on Nov 28th will be our 2002 Draft Preview, which will have roughly 25 profiles and pictures on the top prospects for the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. Compiled by Jake Dole with the assistance of several of the league editors, this preview will take on a different look and feel from what we have usually done, so I welcome any feedback. With the publishing of the “2002 Draft Preview” will also be important news regarding the 2002 Draft Center’s launch dates. One thing is for sure, this years edition will be the most comprehensive one we have done yet.

Also being added over the next few weeks will be all-new polls on the team and league pages. Several of the teams (Florida, Rangers, Islanders, St. Louis, Anaheim,) have already been updated, and if your favorite team’s poll hasn’t been updated, send a letter to the Editor to remind them to get to me the new polls!
