Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE LfTMptiinGE HIRALP Jaturday, Doeembsr IB, 1971 j Times have changed according to Glover START ON GENTLE SLOPES lie lure vim hcpin on your first descent, make sure that von nro on a vrrv jrnHc slope and tliat there is plenty of room for you in rim out when you Ret to the bottom. Often beginneis Ri.irt down a hill not realizing that they cannot stop except by falling down. Most pki area? have a short, gentle slope with a large flat nm-out arpn. These slopes are especially designer! for trie he- ffinnnr on liii first ski day. ]t is important that you first get the feeling of skiing on such a hill. Today's players feel they are special fly THE CANADIAN PRESS In the opinion of Fred Glover, today '.s professional hockey player generally has become in- different, unmanageable, pam- pered, swell-headed and fat. Glover probably has good rea- son for his descriptive prose. He is coach of I.os Angeles Kings, a club which is cutting a distinct s'.vath through the cellar of the Xational Hockey League's West Division. Before joining the Los Ange- les entry after (he start of this "-eason, Glover held (tie coach- ing job with California Golden Seals for tliree years. The Kings currently have 13 points after 30 games on the strength of six wins, 23 losses, fimi one tie. The club remains in the cellar 10 points behind St. Louis Blues. Glover male his hitler and general pronouncement against today's players to Tim Burke, hockey writer for The Gazette, following the Kings' 3-1 capitu- lation to Montreal Canadiens in Los Angeles this week. NEEDN'T WOltfiY But Glover didn't have to worry about I he subject Friday night, since his team wasn't in either of IlK1 two scheduled games. Montreal visited the Canucks in Vancouver, while Detroit Kcd Wings were visitors to the domain. Five games arc scheduled for to- night. Buffalo Sabres meet the lUaple Leafs in Toronto; St. Louis is at home to New York Rangers; Boston Bruins visit Pittsburgh Penguins; the Red Wings journey to Angeles; and Minnesota North Stars play host to Chicago lilac 1: Hawks. Sunday, Montreal is at Cali- fornia; Toronto in Philadelphia against the Flyers; Minnesota at New York: I'ilislnirgh in Boston; Vancouver at Buffalo; and St. Louis at Chicago. Glover said nest season's ex- pansion to Ixmg Island, N.Y., and Atlanta by the NHL, can't possibly affect the game detri- mentally. "ft couldn't possibly become worse than it is he said. "It's almost impossible to charge up -a team any Glover said. "The players simply don't not that they're quit- don't care. Glover maintains that some- where along the line players have lost that desire to scram- ble for the breaks. "They've became s m i 1 e r s he said. "They say 'Why should we hit each other? We've got our association'.' It is understandable when Glover said he is completely mystified about player attitudes today. He was a fierce competi- tor in the American Hockey League for 15 seasons with Cleveland Barons, a tenure that included the last six years there as player-coach. "Players expect everything to be handed to them Glover said. "Before a game they'll need a lace. They could waik three steps and pick one up, but instead you'll hear them shout at the trainer to do it. "After a game, they'll leave their equipment all over the floor and walk off, saying: 'leave it there for the trainer, it's his job.' "Maybe that's why they'll say to themselves on the ice, when the puck is a couple of feet away: 'Alihh, it's too far for me to go and get it.' "When I was playing coach with Cleveland I'd hang up my equipment in the trainer's room was my equipment and my responsibility." Glover figures that discipline began sliding in the mid-6fts and then sank with expansion, until today, the malaise infects a lot more teams than the Kings. "Look at, the Canadiens to- he said, referring to the just-completed contest. "That's not the same Canadiens' team of other years. "They weren't skating like they used lucky to I have goaler (Ken) Drydcn." Hockey players today are In- clined lo look on themselves as something special and think that "people should treat them as Glover said. Instead they should consider themselves as working in a particular field and do that work to the best ol their ability. "They are no different than anyone the coach said. In Glover's estimation most players "aren't working hard enough." "If our players made use of aH their natural skills we'd be a lot higher up than we are. But they're not." He said he blames the afflu- ent society for the diminishing number of "tough, hungry kids coming up now."

Mark and Marty, be allowed to play on the same OHA team. In a departure from his usually easygoing manner, Howe'verbally blasted the OHA, saying it is "sticking it to De- troit and they're using the Howe name to do it." Monday, the OHA announced j it had made the Detroit Junior Wings of the Southern Ontario j Hockey Association eligible for its upcoming draft of boys 17 and older.
