Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, April 16, 1977 _ THE LETHERIDGE HERALD 9 SULLY SAYS -By Pat vs bossman, Don Pilling, has, for more years than I can recall, labelled Jim Colcman of To- ronto not only the finest sports columnist in Canada but one of the best in North America. And he's suggesled that it would be a splendid idea to re- prinl, hi part, at least, a rip-snorter of a piece Cole- man penned the other day regarding the proposed Canadian-Russian hockey series later this year. He told il like it really is. You should enjoy it. There arc some American fat-heads in ttie Na- tional Hockey League who arrogantly have assumed they wil'l dictate the conditions under which the Canada-Russia exhibition matches will be played in September. It's time that someone straightened out those brash American interlopers. In fact, it's time that some Canadian lold Blathering Hill Jennings and Wet Ears Westy Adams to take a big jump into their own polluted Eastern coastal waters. Let's get 'one thing straight, right from the start: This upcoming series is CANADA versus RUS- SIA! This is strictly Canada's show! Canada made Ihc deal with Hussia for a two-country hockey test. No one invited the Americans lo stick their noses into this private litllc shinny tournament. It was the Canadians and only Ihe Canadians who de- voted more than two years to negotiating this show- down with the Russians. In the prolonged negotia- tions, the Canadians requested no assistance from Americans or Unions. But, now that Hie Canada-Russia hockey pact lias been sealed, everyone wants to get into the act. Sud- denly, the Americans have decided that Canada can't possibly play hockey against Russia without the as- sistance and guidance of our Big Brothers in the U.S. of A. help Canada if, indeed, we have become such international sycophants that w e can't even play hockey against liie Russians without the approval of some of those laughable fat-heads who are club- owners in the NHL. i Let's gel a second thing straight: the only peo- ple who have been involved in the negotiations with Russia ere the Canadian federal government, the Ca- nadian Amateur Hockey Association and Hockey Can- ada. Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs have membership on the board of Hockey Canada. Thus, Toronto and Montreal are the only professional hockey clubs which arc involved directly in Ihe Can- ada-Russia series. Vancouver Canucks also have a representative on the board of Hockey Canada but, the Canucks don't count for a hill of. beans. The Canucks are Canadian in name only. The Canucks are controlled by a group of carpet-bagging Americans. Forget them! Okay, let's demonstrate right now that Can- ada requires no help in this venture. Hockey Canada and the CAHA should get together immediately and announce that Canada's team for the Russian matches will consist of members of Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs. With that announcement, Hockey Canada and the CAI1A would be telling the Americans politely to stay the hell out of Canada's hockey affairs. Personally, I don't believe in wasting politeness on Bill .Terming and Westy Adams. Their arrogant interference in Canada's private affairs doesn't merit a courteous rebuke. I There's one more good reason why the lineup of Canada's team in the matches against Russia should be confined to members of the Montreal Ca- nadiens and the Toronto Maple Leafs: Some young Canadian men, who are receiving to S100.000, annually for playing hockey in U.S. cities, have indicated that, as far as they're con coined, hockey is strictly business. The thought of wearing "Canada" on their sweaters in an intcrna tional confrontation with Russia, doesn't turn then on emotionally. When membership in Canada's team is suggested to them, a few of them (I emphasize only "a reply with businesslike questions: "How much will be paid? Will I be covered by insurance? Will it be okay with my I say: "Korgct any players who have the slight cst personal reservations against playing for Canada Who needs This is Canada's first and possibly, Canada's las chance to demonstrate lhat we have professionn hockey plnyers who are capable of beating Russia national team. Let's do it as Canadians with a team of play- ers who arc under conlract to the only genuinely Ca- nadian teams who are left in professional hockey: Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs. And, lei's have no more crap from Blathering Bill Jennings, Wet Ears Wcsly Adams or any olhcr Ameri- can club owner. 3owcr plays was the big difference Record falls as Bruins sweep series easi! ST.

BRUINS l.F.M) 4-1 Phil Esposilo and John Bucyk scored two goals each as the Bruins opened a 4-1 lead before the Bhics caught fire and nar- rowed the gap to two goals by Andre Duponl and Chris Evans in the third period.
