"The Kings have won only seven of 111 games.

On Nov. 30, the Kings re- moved general manager Larry Regan as coach and hired the 43-year-old Glover. A few days later they made another move, trading promising Dale Hcganson, goalie Denis Dcjordy and two other players to Montreal Canadiens for a goalie considered one of the league's besl, Rogation Vachon. But Vachon, who had surren- dered an average of only about goals a game in his career with the Canadiens, has yielded more than four a game behind the Kings' defence, long their weakest point. Some critics say the Kings gave up too much for Vachon. Glover disagrees. "I don't care what anyone says, we got the man we he says. "Vachon has played well.
