Tokarski, Not Good Enough For "AAA" Legionnaires

Ok, so Spokane Chiefs goaltender Dustin Tokarski may have not been good enough to play for our local "AAA" midget team but apparently he was good enough to win the Telus Cup later that year with Prince Albert and the Memorial Cup with Spokane yesterday.

Just found this note in the Saskatoon Star Phoenix recently and checked it out a bit further.

"There were like six or seven (failed tryouts)," recalls Tokarski. "Both Saskatoon teams, the Blazers and Contacts, Beardys, Tisdale, North Battleford, Swift Current"

To the Legionnaires defense, they weren't the only ones who didn't see Tokarski's potential around the Saskatchewan Midget "AAA" Hockey League.

The Watson, SK native is quite the story. His 53 save performance in the Memorial Cup Championship game was the biggest reason why the Chiefs pulled it out.

Good for him.

Now for the Legionnaires sake and with Western Regionals coming to our city this April, let's hope they make the right decisions come fall.

Sorry to tell you folks but Tim will be coaching the Peewee Broncos. The first thing they should do is get rid of there manager, that guy is a joke & don't know shit about hockey. Walks around the rink like a big shot.

There are probably about 4 or 5 guys in the Southwest that could handle the Legionnaire's responsibility and make the team respectable
