After losing three games in a row , G.M. D.R.Morrison , flies home from Arizona to be at Huskies next game in Brandon Manitoba . Wow that is a change in temperature , but you can bet he is hot under the brim over the play of his club. When he left the team was rising up the standings and rating at number two. Now after three straight loses , the Huskies are falling out of the eight and final playoff spot. Tuukka Rask has been yanked in the last two games and has not looked good. The Huskies top players Alex Burrows -3 no points , Drew Doughty -3 no points , Tyler Myers -4 no points , James Neal -3 no points and Jordan Staal -2 no points and a fight. Drew Doughty also had a fight , not helping team when best players are fighting. All this from a Bears team that has been trading away assets and has been last in the Canadian division for most of the season. Tonight's game will be a tough task to turn around a skid , going into Brandon to face the Wheat Kings . The Wheat Kings have 61 points , top dog in the Canadian division with no team even close to them. Lead by Brad Richards the league's top scorer , with 61 points and free agent goalie Tim Thomas , the Wheat Kings are the Leagues top team , with their run and gun style. The reason for a trip to Arizona was the signing of a large number of prospects to S.I.C.H.L. contracts for next year. The list includes , Alex Burmistrov center, Lance Bouma forward, Marcus Johansson center , Jordan Caron wing , Yann Sauve defensemen, Jamie Arniel center and goales Mikko Koskinen , Peter Mannino . The agents for these players were also treated to a golf vacation at the Legacy golf resort during the ten day stay. Their is no truth to the rumor that D.R. Morrison was looking to the Glendale arena for a move. Quote , "We will never leave the Yukon.Whitehorse is a booming area and rise in population , with the hockey love and the high wages. We do not see Arizona as a viable S.I.C.H.L. location , but love golfing their ."said Morrison."The seven agents who attended the holiday provided by the Huskies , represent lots of players in the S.I.C.H.L.. So the standard contracts signed were just ground work for signings down the road. Having a good working relationship with agents , is a key to getting good free agents." Morrison added. The Whitehorse Huskies say , unless you are the lead dog , the view never changes!
