Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, December 12, 1974 AUSTRALIA and SOUTH PACIFIC FARMERS and RANCHERS TOUR Priced it ptrton Double Occupancy. Airfare, Accommodation, Tourt, Meats ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONB 32M144 Stan Fischler NHL-WHL war for from over NEW YORK, Anyone who believes that the war between the NHL and WHA is over merely is dreaming of pop- pies on the North Pole The war isn't over because the NHL still is in a position to deliver some telling if not killing blows to its young foe, and has been doing so with significant regularity in the past few months One of the most important yet least trumpeted NHL gains has been in California The Los Angeles Kings not only knocked the WHA Sharks clear out of the state but now Jack Kent Cooke's sextet threatens to knock a few NHL foes right out of a playoff berth The Kings' renaissance has been the NHL's tonic of the season, along with Vancouver Canuck's encouraging perfor- mance and one that has seasoned hockey critics pondering the when and hows of it Goalie Rogatien Vachon, coach Bob Pulford, right wing Bob Nevm and defenceman Terry Harper all unlikely heroes have been the most obvious reasons for the Kings' prosperity The French Canadian Vachon, whom Buffalo manager Punch Imlach once denigrated as "nothing but a Junior B is, like Harper, an emigrant from the Montreal Canadiens Both played on Stanley Cup-winners but both were considered expendable by Montreal manager Sam Pollock "Roggie, as he's known in the business, was delighted with the switch "When we win in Los Vachon says, "it's a pleasure for everyone It is a GIFT But if you play for Montreal and you win, everybody shrugs 'So what7' they say 'You should' Not that I enjoy losing God, when you lose you bloody well want to die' But the Kings have been losing less these days thanks to the 28 ear-old Vachon In a game against Buffalo, for example, Vachon stopped 55 out of 57 Sabres shots at the Los Angeles Forum Final score Kings 7, Sabres 2 "That was one of the best exhibitions of goaltending I ve ever seen in my says Sabres' coach Floyd Smith "That's why they pay the little (5-8, 160) Frenchman so much money The" Kings are fortunate that Vachon's backstop, Gary Edwards, has been conspicuously sharp when he has speeled Roggie And the two goalies, unlike many, get along well together 'The way I look at says Edwards, "is that if Roggie plays well it means more money for me I'm sure he looks at it the same way The only time I don't like him is when he beats me at golf Another likeable King is Nevm, considered washed-up by the Rangers for whom he once played, who has been scoring big as well as taking regular turns as a penalty killer with Butch Goring, They make the job easier for says Harper "You don t have to worry about giving up a goal if the other team can't even cross centre ice Harper a seemingly awkward but steady defenceman, was booed out of the Montreal Forum but enjoys the Los Angeles Forum and coach Pulford We re executing the says Harper "We're also beating the man to the puck, playing and checking the man out of the play In addition, we're making the unsung play rather than trying to make the spectacular one That's to Pulford's credit But the coach needed the horses and they were provided by 58-year-old Jake Milford, the Kings' manager, who like Fred Shero had languished in the Rangers' system under Emile Francis Wheeling and dealing, Milford acquired young legs, mostly in deals with the Rangers Flamboyant Gene Carr, Mike Murphy and Tom Williams all forwards as well as defenceman Shel Kannegeisser all were overlooked by Francis in one way or another, but especially Carr In the end, though, it appears that Vachon has been the most vital King "The key to our Pulford insists, "has been the goaltending Specialists in all types of Engines ENGINE REBUILDING CYLINDER BORING AND RESLEEVING CRANKSHAFT REGRINDING WISCONSIN

Editor Lethbndge Broncos were wheeling and dealing Wednesday and when the dust settled Lome Molleken and Dean Samis were on their way to the Winnipeg Clubs Broncos, who play host to the Medicine Hat Tigers in a key Western Canada Hockey League game Friday at eight at the Sportsplex, had been looking to make some changes in the club for the last week "It was a tough decision to said Bronco general manager Bill Burton Both Samis and Molleken had been with Burton for three years prior to his move to Lethbndge from Swift Current Burton indicated the hardest thing to do was to let Samis go to the Clubs "I got to know the young man quite he said "It was one of my tougher decisions Molleken earned the number one goalie's job after an excellent training camp and early season However, a shot from the stick of Rick Blight of Brandon Wheat Kings, Oct 7 knocked Molleken un- conscious and seemed to unnerve the 18 year-old The past month Rollie Boutin has taken over the number one spot and it appears he will now keep it for a while Samis, on the other hand, was expected to anchor the Bronco defence but had not reached expectations "The trade may help both add- ed Burton, "it often does Broncos earlier in the year released Bill Oleschuk who then latched on to a job as netminder for the Saskatoon Blades In the first meeting between the two clubs Oleschuk blanked the Broncos 3-0 Broncos, in exchange for Molleken and Samis, will receive Garv Wagner from the Clubs Wagner, an 18-year old like both Samis and Molleken, can play centre and left wing Burton expects Wagner to help fill the gap left by the injury to Greg Woods, the Broncos' hustling centre out for eight weeks with a broken shoulder "Wagner was an exceptional 16-year Burton stated "He picked up 48 points in his rookie year as a 16-year old but I don't have all the particulars on his last year's performance Also included in the trade, along with future considerations, is 18-year-old Chris Magnussen who is now playing with Pen- ticton of the BC Junior Hockey League With the departure of Molleken and Samis Bronco coach Earl Ingarfield, in all likelihood, will dress both Russ Hall, an 18-year old defenceman from Calgary and goalie Glen Anweiler Anweiler will be backup to Boutin Fri- day against the Tigers and again Sunday as the New Westminster Bruins pay a visit Pulford has made his club league 6Kings
