Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD December 1973 010 YOU II you FLY to VANCOUVER Or VICTORIA on toturdiy or on Sunday before 3 p.m. YOU CAN SAVE MONEY. For Mills Contact ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 321-3201 The Herald STAN FISCHLER The word out of the National Hockey League's propaganda ministry had it that the eight game tour of NHL cities by two Russian teams this season had been cancelled for stupid reasons. The reasons The Russians balked at paying U.S. taxes on money earned and The Russians were afraid of risking their amateur standing for the 1976 Winter Olympics. If you believe these reasons then you might as well believe what Richard Nixon has been saying in the White House for the past year. I. for don't believe a word of it. I believe the series with the Russians has been cancelled because the NHL has chickened out of the series. For my the NHL teams are afraid to play the Russians because of what happened to Team Canada in September 1972. If an all-star team like Team which was supposed to win eight straight games from the could only win four can you imagine what might happen to the mediocre Bruins in Boston Garden or the Flyers in The I don't say the Russians didn't raise obstacles over the proposed eight game series. The Russians always do because they have no class. It's the Soviet style. I was hoping the NHL would have more class. If the Soviets didn't want to pay U.S. the filthy rich NHL teams easily could have picked up the tab without even denting their bankbooks. But the et. al. were chicken. And don't feed me any malarky about If a Team Canada-Russia series couldn't affect the Russkies in 1972 then nothing can in 1973 or 1974. That amateur alibi is a crock if I ever heard one. The fact remains that the Team Canada-Russia series did more to deflate NHL prestige than any event since the invention of the puck. Had the Russians come to the United States this season and defeated the NHL teams especially the Bruins and Black Hawks on their home as the NHL prestige would plummet to somewhere around the level of minus the radical 50. If the NHL teams weren't they would have follow- ed through on their original invitation and made damn sure that no obstacles remained to block the not tax money and not amateur standing I'm sure that NHL President Clarence Campbell would have liked the senes to have come based on what he's said about the Russians. were interested in this round of said 'and perhaps eventually a world championship series after that. Let's face the Russians are here and we're going to have to live with them. To rest on your laurels is to sit on your ass. There's no way you can live unto the NHL can't be an Campbell wanted the series because he remembered in the Moscow Dynamos soccer team came to London and beat most of England's first division teams. A good 20 years passed before the English recovered their soccer prestige in World Cup matches. we don't play the Russians said going to condemn ourselves to the same But the NHL isn't going to play the Russians in the it will have only itself to blame. The alibis amateur standing look good in print. But when you filter out all the it comes out that the NHL has chickened out on the Russians.

Traffic jam Jets chalk up pair By THE CANADIAN PRESS Winnipeg Jets have encoun- tered some criticism locally for expecting Bobby Hull to be both a good coach and a good player. Bill a former National League heard the murmurs of discontent and helped the Jets win two over the Toronto Toros Friday night and a 3-1 over league-leading Edmonton Oilers Wednesday. The win created a jam in second place in the league's Western Division between idle Houston the Jets and Minnesota Fighting Saints who defeated Vancouver Blazers 3-1 at home in the only other game Friday. Juzda had been watching the spotty performances of the Jets this year and approached Hull with an offer to help last week. He took went to a Je.ts' practice and pointed out their mistakes.
