Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LAS VEGAS FUN FE9T 4 days, 3 nights accomodatlon. U drive for 48 hours. Return Airfare Great Falls, Las Vegas via Frontier Air- lines only ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centre Village Mall ____________Phone 326-3201 Third Section Pat Sullivan TORONTO (CP) The executive director of the National Hockey League Players' Association says the group will soon seek a court ruling similar to one announc- ed Friday which declared the National Football League's "Rozelle rule" illegal. Al Eagleson said the NHLPA will sue the NHL owners within a few months. He said the suit now is being prepared by the association's anti-trust lawyer, Ira Mills- tein of New York. Eagleson's comment followed announcement in San Francisco that a federal judge ruled the NFL's reserve system and its Rozelle rule il- legal. The decision by District Court Judge William Sweigert dealt with a suit by former quarterback Joe Kapp. The Rozelle rule involves players who become free agents and seek employment LETHBRIDGE BRONCOS PLAYERS OF THE WEEK December 8 thru December 14.1974 This week we have two players of the week, against new West and Medicine Hat, Trottier picked up 3 goals and 5 assists, while Sutter got 5 goals and 2 assists, super work guys, keep it up.

Sunday evening at seven the WCHL All-Stars will take on Czechoslovakia in an exhibition contest at the Sportsplex. "It's once in a lifetime chance for hockey people in Southern said Chynoweth. "It may be the only time thev will see a national team, live in their own back yard." While the Czech team that will play the All-Stars here Sun- day and in Medicine Hat Monday, is not the national team as yet, many of the players will play for their country in the next Olympics. "What the people will see, besides an excellent array of Canadian junior continued Chynoweth, "will be the young Czech players currently being groomed for the national team." For the juniors, the two games will serve as a warm-up for the upcoming International tournament in Winnipeg. "It will be a great experience for the players from our was the way Chynoweth described it. In Winnipeg the All-Stars will play the Czechs, Russia, United States, Finland and Sweden. Lethbridge Broncos will send two players to the tournament in the persons of Bryan Trottier and Brian Sutter. Sutter and Trottier played for the Edmonton Oil Kings against Russia while Trottier met the Russians again with the New Westminster Bruins. He scored a goal in that game. Both Trottier and Sutter were impressed with the Russian style of play. For Trottier, who received special attention from the Soviet forwards, it was the speed of the Russians. "They are very quick and waste little time getting their shots said the captain of the Broncos. On the other hand, while Sutter agreed that the Russians are fast, he feels they can be beaten. "WA had never played together as a team in Edmonton and lost by one said the leading rookie scorer in the WCHL. "If we keep skating and checking I think we have a solid chance in Winnipeg." Both Sutter and Trottier noted that the Russians play the game almost by script. They are always in position unless you upset the initial puck carrier. "Then they have to stated Sutler. Regardless of whether or not the All-Stars defeat the Czechs we will be in for one of the greatest hockey treats ever. Czechoslovakia has long been the second best amateur hockey country, if you want to call them amateur. Their style is very much like that of the Russians. The Czechs, however, like to use the body more than the Russians. All in all, it should prove to be a very interesting evening. NHL Players Association to seek court ruling By THE CANADIAN PRESS Losers became winners in the Western Canada Hockey League's Eastern Division Friday night, while in the West second-place Kamloops Chiefs ended a lengthy drought- and Victoria Cougars maintained their losing streak. A six-goal outburst in the third period gave the usually hapless Clubs an 8-3 win over third-place Lethbridge Bron- cos in Winnipeg. The Bombers, meanwhile, came to life to edge Regina Pats 4-3 before a Flin Flon crowd of about In Saskatoon, rookie Bruce Hamilton scored twice to lead the Blades to a 6-3 win over the Cougars and the Chiefs downed Edmonton Oil Kings 6-0 in Kamloops as goalie Mark Earp posted his second shutout of the season. In Flin Flon, the Bombers' Bob Watson scored the tying goal midway through the third period on a power play and Scott Williams got the winner four minutes later. Other Flin Flon marksmen were Danny Kuntz and Tom Cullin. Doug Keil, Dave Faulkner and Les Grauer scored for the Pats. Ed Staniowski stopped 39 shots for Regina and Bomber goalie Roger Swanson kicked out 30. Larry Skinner scored three goals to pace the Clubs to with other clubs. Under NFL rules, commissioner Pete Rozelle rules on what com- pensation a club signing a free agent must give to the club the player comes from, if the two clubs cannot themselves agree on compensation. Eagleson said the Rozelle rule was exactly what the NHL owners "have tried to foist upon us." He said the NHL rule, in- serted in player contracts this year, calls for a team signing a free agent to compensate the team he leaves with a player of similar value. Eagleson argues that this dis- courages teams from negotiating with free agents because they fear losing a player they might value more. The NHL clause states that an arbiter yet to be determin- ed would rule on compensa- tion in such cases.
