Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TuMday. August LCTHBRIDGE Finds Taber Golden Sun hockey school first class, the best Record book Bobby Hull made plenty of friends Monday is attacked By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor If I were to ask you what professional sports league gamed credibility by the signing of one player, could you tell me the answer' It should be simple, especially if you are a hockey fan When the World Hockey Association, through Gary Davidson some three years back, announced that it would challenge the National Hockey League by signing Robert Marvin Hull from the Chicago Black Hawks the statement drew more than its share of laughter However, Hull did jump to the WHA and because he did the WHA is fast approaching parity with its professional counterpart Thousands of hockey fans would travel hundreds of miles to meet Bobby Hull I had to travel to Taber, to the Golden Sun Hockey School The school, under the direction of Gary Hull, the youngest of three excellent junior prospects, began Aug 5 and will continue through the month until players seeking berths on the Golden Suns arrive for camp Hull, Gary that is, will coach the Suns this year in the Alberta Junior Hockey League It is because Gary is conducting the school that Bobby traveled west Monday afternoon between signing autographs Bobby had a few minutes to discuss a variety of things, the least of which was not the upcoming series with Russia for the WHA Team Canada 1974 "Knowing what we will face will make a big says Hull "The first Team Canada had little time to prepare and may not have been ready He went on to say that it should be interesting The WHA club may not be as good overall as the 1972 Team Canada but they will be better prepared mentally and, in all likelihood, physically "All our guys are said Hull proudly If they aren't skating they are working out, either running or doing calesthentics Just working their butts off Hull indicated you might call it devotion "We don't expect to run the Russians out of the added Hull "That would be our biggest mistake No, he said, this time Team Canada will go against the Russians with short shifts, go all out all the time "We hope to keep fresh units on the ice as much as he said "Doing this we may upset the Russian patterns Hull emphasized the fact that against Russia posses- sion of the puck is all-important You have to keep the puck away from them If need be, fall back and regroup Hull, himself, will definitely be ready come Sept 1 Hull, in 18 years of professional hockey, has been to more than his share of hockey schools Don't let the fact that his brother Gary is running things at Taber tarnish his feelings about the Golden Sun operation Said Hull Monday, "this is the finest school I have seen There is great organization The kids are treated ex- cellently Supervision at Taber is continual The boys are kept busy all the time "Being a laughed Hull." when my young guys come home at night from a hockey school and hit the sack, I know they've been kept busy As Hull puts it, if you can keep kids busy with sports or activities, their minds are less cluttered up with "today's garbage Things like packs on corners or gangs don't take place when there are healthy minds "You find less trouble with kids involved m Hull states, and firmly believes As for Hull this year7 "I'll play more now that Rudy Pilous is coaching the says Hull Pilous and Hull go back to Hull's junior days Hull admits that playing and coaching are a tough combination "It was easy the first year All the guys would go through the end of the nnk for Hull said But complacency set in, and the job got tougher and tougher No Robert Marvin Hull will patrol the left wing for the Winnipeg Jets this year The greatest left winger in hockey history may have had second thoughts about leading the WHA wagon tram on its pioneer voyage But that was his decision And Bobby Hull has backed down from very few of his decisions by swimmers Havlicek has lead ROTONDA Fla (AP) Basketball star
