Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBHIUUC i Mprn Think Earlyl Think Ahead. Now It tht tlmt to register for CHRISTMAS IN HAWAII 1974 Contact... ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 Pat Sullivan Philadelphia Flyers have little or no respect or concern for anyone. The fact that they are currently two games up on the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup semi-finals is enough of an indication of their lack of brotherhood. But, on top of this, they are taking money away from needy organizations while they are at it. Let me explain. In a beer hall in New York early last week, Brad Park had taken all the kidding he was going to take concerning his huge salary reported to be the largest in hockey. Fellow suds swallowers forced the talented Ranger defenceman into a corner and he came out offering some of the long green in the event certain things take place. Park and the New York Rangers were having a tough time of it against the Montreal Canadiens. With some fans listening. Park stated that it wasn't the money that counted the Rangers want to win the Stanley Cup because they are a proud hockey club. The fact that New York hasn't won a Stanley Cup in 30-odd years also entered into it. Park was challenged by one fan who said that if the money didn't matter, Park could give the to him that being the winners' share. The New York player wasn't ready to do just that, but he did make the bar patrons a deal. "If we win the Stanley Cup." said Park, "I'll give all of my earnings to Big Brothers of America. You can call it a tax write-off, but the thought was still there. What happens if the Rangers don't win the Stanley Cup? Park still agreed to give money to the Big Brothers. He did change his mind about the should the Rangers win. The amount will be the same but it will be shared by Big Brothers and a children's hospital in New York that saved Park's son's life recently. Park has no fears about the Rangers winning their first cup in three decades, he just hasn't been able to convince the Fearsome Flyers. And how about those Flyers? They can even intimidate a goal judge with the help of their fans. Also the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. has just saved my color TV by switching to the Boston Bruin-Chicago Black Hawk series tonight. If I had to sit through another of those Flyer-Ranger fiascos, I'm certain I would put my foot through the sdreen. I have never made so many trips to the fridge for refreshment changes in ages. I will give the Flyers credit for hustle The Rangers should demand some sort of a test after each game. Those Flyers are hypo from the word go What I don't like is a second-rater like Bob Kelly, who has about as much hockey talent as Vida Blue, runs at a rookie like Jerry Butler from behind, and then comes on looking like a hero to the Philadelphia fans Kelly showed his real character when hard-nosed Ron Harris thumped him three times. Kelly wasn't ready to take what Harris had to dish out, not when Harris was facing him. And I guess spearing is a five-minute major for everyone but Bobby Clarke. I have said it before, and I still feel that way. The Flyers should be tipping over garbage cans in a back alley in Philly with the rest of the gangs. The Flyers, should they have their names engraved on the Stanley Cup, won't have won it they will have stolen it. It's just too bad in hockey there isn't a penalty for grand larceny. Enough said I suppose. Glenn Hall enters Hall EDMONTON (CP) Former National Hockey League goaltender Glenn Hall was one of four members inducted into the Edmonton Sports Hall of Fame Tuesday night. Joining Hall were Moe Lieberman, veteran football player and official; Leroy Goldsworthy, now of Vancouver, a veteran of hockey, baseball and golf, and the late George Harvie, former amateur hockey official. More than 60 Edmonton residents were honored for achievement in fields ranging from music to sports. Among those honored was Wally Watts, who became known as Wobbling Wally last summer when he completed a journey across Canada by unicycle.

Selkirk leads the series 2-1. The remaining games will be played in Kelowna beginning Saturday. Murray Thomson lifted the Steelers to a 4-4 tie early in the final period after Kelowna had taken 4-3 edge at the end of the second frame. Other Selkirk goals were scored by Gord Kaluzniak and Marlin Vanrobaeys. Mark Curt Fraser, Archie McKinnon and Murray Hanson got the Kelowna goals. After a heavy-hitting, hard-checking first two periods, Selkirk netminder Norm Tesluk was replaced by Andy Stoesz who played a brilliant final period and sparked the Steelers to take a large territorial edge in play. The Selkirk due turned aside 31 shots while Bill Stankove faced 50 shots in the Kelowna nets. Kelowna coach Don Culley was lived after the game. He verbally attacked referee Bud Ulrich, Selkirk coach George Dorman and the Steelers players for the bruising game. "They had two good referees in the first two games then they bring in someone like that. The Manitoba representative ought to have his head he said. Turning to the Steelers, who generally play a rough style of hockey, Culley said they wouldn't win another game once they get to Kelowna. "If they played that way to get here, they shouldn't be here. Any team that has to use a ref to win is a disgrace to junior hockey." Across the arena, Dorman said his team hit a little, but not like they can. "They tell me the ice at Kelowna is small like Selkirk. We should be able to hit more there and on the smaller ice we'll really be able to shoot." Good to have around the net Pappin a money player By IAN MacLAINE CHICAGO (CP) Laconic Jim Pappin provided a few hazy details Wednesday of what happened prior to his goal in overtime Tuesday night that gave Chicago Black Hawks a 2-1 lead in the best- of-seven Stanley Cup semi- final with Boston Bruins. "I'm not sure whether I got the puck away from their man Gregg Sheppard almost quit twice Gary Hobson Canadian is new G.M. CALGARY (CP) Gary Hobson, assistant general manager of Winnipeg Blue Bombers for the last four years, was named Wednesday as successor to Rogers Lehew as general manager of Calgary Stampeders. A Winnipeg native, Hobson becomes the third Canadian to hold a general manager's post in the Canadian Football League, joining Norm Kimball of Edmonton Eskimos and Ken Preston of Saskatchewan Roughriders. He was one of nine applicants for the vacant Stampeder job. CHICAGO (CP) Gregg Sheppard considered leaving the Boston Bruins organization on two occasions. As a junior, he wanted to play close to home. The National Hockey League Bruins wanted him to play in another area, so he quit and went home for two weeks. With Oklahoma City, a farm club of the Bruins in the Central Hockey league, he was considering finding something else to do if he didn't make it to the NHL. He eventually joined the Bruins and the 24-year-old North Battleford, Sask., native has been one of their top young players. The 5-foot-8, 160-pound Sheppard joined Estevan Bruins, a Boston-sponsored junior team in the Western Canada Hockey League, when he was 16. He was among the last crop of sponsored juniors before the universal draft came into effect. "In my first year of Junior A, I didn't want to go down to Estevan (Southern Saskatchewan) and he said. "I had a chance to play just 80 miles from home in the northern part of Saskatchewan." I did quit and went home for two weeks. I thought about it and said 'This is where my interest lies.' I found out that Estevan was a super place to play. "Then, my third year in Oklahoma, I knew the year 1 had if I didn't get drafted or make it to the NHL, I was considering finding something else to do." His first move would have been to return to school and recover an education given up as a youngster for hockey. Sheppard plays centre on a line with Johnny Bucyk and Bobby Schmautz which has accounted for 14 of the team's 30 goals in playoffs this year. Sheppard has six. "I was hoping just to get said Sheppard, referring to his final year at Oklahoma City where he had 41 goals and 52 assists. That was the 1971-72 season when he was named the CHL's most valuable player. The 1972-73 season marked another expansion campaign for the NHL and Sheppard knew the new teams were interested in him. He even had a talk with general manager Bill Torrey of New York Islanders about his future if the Bruins left him unprotected. Instead they dropped Ed Westfall and protected Sheppard. Two-coach system works NEW YORK (CP) For several seasons, several National Hockey League clubs have dabbled with a two-man coaching system. Philadelphia Flyers have made it a success. Coach Fred Shero and assistant Mike Nykoluk have melted into almost a single unit to produce a system that has assisted in the development of younger players. It has helped the Flyers to advance to the Stanley Cup semi-finals for the second consecutive John Hellawell (Licensed Mechanic) from John's Motor Clinic Is now located with Chick Macintosh at Lakeview Texaco and is looking forward to meeting all his regular and new customers in the near future. "FOR ALL YOUR CAR CARE NEEDS" LAKEVIEW TEXACO SERVICE 1001 Mayor Magrath Drive Phone 327-5697 Chick Macintosh is happy to have JOHN located with him at Lake- view Texaco to serve you better! season. The Flyers will be out to make it three straight tonight in their best-of-seven playoff series against New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. But the Rangers, smarting from 4-0 and 3-2 losses in Philadelphia fast Saturday and Tuesday, want to keep a record intact. Philadelphia has not beaten the Rangers in New York since Dec. When Shero hired Nykoluk two years ago on a full-time basis, it was with the under- standing that the latter would have his say in helping to run the club. "A lot of coaches have wanted help before, but have been afraid to ask for it be- cause of economic Shero said Wednesday. "Assistants are needed now, especially with all the young players breaking into the league since expansion. Nykoluk, 39, is a native of Toronto and brother to Danny, former lineman with Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. A former centre with Hershey Bears of the American. Hockey League for 15 seasons, Mike holds equal status with Shero during Flyers workouts and can authorize lineup changes during a Stanley Cup game. "I have authority from Fred to do anything I the as- sistant coach said. "If I spot something wrong I can go into the dressing room between periods and point out the mistakes to the players involved." (defenceman Darryl Edestrand) behind the Bruins' goal or J. P. (Bordeleau) Pappin said. "But I do know that J. P. got the puck back to Bill White near the point. "Their goalie (Gilles Gilbert) was playing White's shot all the way and I don't think he even saw me. When the puck reached my stick, I had the whole net to myself. His goal gave Chicago a 4-3 victory. The National Hockey League teams meet here tonight in the fourth game. The game, which starts at p.m. MST, will be shown on the CBC national tele- vision network. GOOD IN PLAYOFFS "Pappin is a good man to have around at playoff says Chicago coach Billy Reay. "The record speaks for itself." The record goes back to 1967. Pappin, playing for Toronto Maple Leafs, almost routed the Hawks himself in semi-final play when he led all scorers with seven goals in 12 games as the Leafs won their last Stanley Cup. Two years later, he was traded to Chicago and scored 10 goals in the 1971 playoffs. "Playoffs mean a lot to me because of the extra money they bring, said Pappin. "It means I can spend my sum- mers flying and playing golf instead of working." Notes: Stan Mikita has moved ahead of former team- mate Bobby Hull in career playoff The veteran Chicago centre is the leading active NHL scorer in post-season games, trailing retired Jean Beliveau of Montreal Canadiens (176) and ex-Detroit Red Wing Gordie Howe Since Johnny Bower of To- ronto became the first goaltender to post an assist in Stanley Cup play, several other goalies have picked up an assist in a playoff year. Only Michel Larocque and Gilles Gilbert of picked up two, both this year. In five games during the regular season, Chicago and Boston had a total of five power-play goals against each other. In three playoff games they've scored by Bos- ton. LOOKING FOR A FUTURE? A career with Niagara Companies offers you: Rewarding Management opportunities with an ever expanding company.
