Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 15, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 25 Stan Fischler Phil Esposito has launched his campaign for a Catfish Hunter type contract and it's enough to make a working man run for a bottle of antacid pills. Lately the Boston Bruins centre has been disparaging Rocket Richard's 50 goals in 50 games claiming that Richard scored against weak wartime opposition. That, of course, is an applesauce argument. Sure, it was wartime but there were only six teams then and plenty of damn good players around th2 NHL, including goaltenders. Nothing like the jokers who wear the masks today. On the other hand, Espo also has been waxing sentimental these nights. "Jean Beliveau was my Phil recently warbled. "He was the guy I looked to most. I always like to watch him play when I was growing up." There remains a basic difference between Beliveau and Esposito. It's spelled C-L-A-S-S. Alan Eagleson, the man most responsible for the irresponsi- ble salary demands made these days by big league hockey players, now tells us that in the future, the rich will get richer and the others will drop a notch or two. "That's as it should said Eagleson. "Owners never balk at paying a great player what he's worth. What really up- sets them is paying an average player an inflated salary." Eagleson is fight and he's wrong. He's right saying that nobody would downgrade a superstar getting his just salary. But he's wrong to suggest that there are more than a dozen genuine superstars in the majors. You have to include Bobby Hull and Gordie Howe for nostalgia purposes. Then throw in Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, Bobby Clarke, Brad Park, Denis Potvin and, after that, take your pick in filling out the dozen. None of the rest should pull down more than a year; not the way the hockey economy is plummeting. And if you don't believe me, check with the 30 workers at Atlanta's Omni who recently got their bye bye papers. Speaking of money, one of the biggest wastes in the pros oc- curs at the scouting level where bird dogs miss potential aces time and time again. For example, the Canadiens young ace Larry Robinson was a 20th draft choice in 1971 and now he's one of the best defenders in the league. Then, there's the Rangers' "new Ron Greschner. This can't miss kid was drafted 32nd repeat, thirty two yet he's a good bet to win The Calder (rookie of the year) Trophy this year. Unifarm Bonspiel set francie Larrieu holds onto a judge after breaking: the world record in the metre event at Toronto.

Vancouver forward Andre Boudrias, assessed a 10- minute misconduct for argu- ing with Wicks, said after the game that while Wicks is not a bad referee, incidents do happen when he's on the ice. The Canucks played the last 51 seconds two men short when Vancouver's Bob Dailey picked up a minor and Wicks added a bench minor after Paulin Bordeleau threw his glove in the direction of the referee. Boudrias then asked Wicks to measure the stick of Detroit forward Danny Grant, but Wicks instead checked another player's stick, turned over from the Detroit bench. When Boudrias and Bordeleau protested, Wicks assessed the misconducts. "The only thing Wicks had to do was to tell the Detroit ANDY CAPP FEELIN1 AU.RI6MT KID?

"That's all I wanted him to do and he gave me a 10- minute penalty for that." Detroit coach Alex Delvecchio said Wicks should not have called a delaying-the- game penalty in the second period against goalie Jim Rutherford. Boudrias scored on the power play during that penalty. Delvecchio said Wicks saw Rutherford cover the puck and then briefly let it go without acknowledging the gesture. When Rutherford recovered the puck, Wicks called the penalty. The teams were tied 1-1 at the end of the first period on goals by Vancouver's Don Le- ver and Detroit's Larry Giroux. Detroit jumped into an ear- ly 2-1 lead in the second period on a goal by Grant, but John Gould and Boudrias put the Canucks ahead for the first time later in the period. Grant scored at to tie the game 3-3 going into the final frame. Grant scored his third of the game and his 35th of the season at of the third period to put Detroit ahead 4- 3. Ah Demarco tied the score at and Dennis Ververgaert scored at from directly in front of Rutherford for the winner.

Bucyk fires tying goal By THE CANADIAN PRESS Unanswered third-period goals by Saskatoon Blades and Lethbridge Broncos enabled them to salvage tie games Friday night in Western Canada Hockey League action. A goal by rookie Bruce Hamilton at gave Saskatoon a 2-2 tie with Brandon Wheat Kings while Terry Bucyk's goal with four seconds left capped a Lethbridge comeback for a 5-5 tie with Kamloops Chiefs. The tie extended the Blades' unbeaten streak at home to 14 games. They have not lost at Saskatoon since Nov. 26 when they were defeated 3-1 by Kamloops. The one point moved Brandon into sole possession of third place in the Eastern Division with 48 points, one more than Regina Pats. The Blades lead the Eastern Division with 67 points. In Kamloops, the Broncos rallied from a 5-2 second-period deficit with three goals in the final period, the last coming with goalie Rollie Boutin pulled in favor of an extra attacker. Jerry Bancks sparked the Lethbridge comeback with three goals, while Bryan Trottier added the fifth Bronco marker. Brad Gassoff led Kamloops with two goals while Dave Robin- son, Reg Kerr and Barry Melrose added singles. In Saskatoon, Brandon took a 1-0 first-period lead on a short- handed goal by Dale McMullin.

Kansas City-Omaha Kings, whose 132-112 triumph over Buffalo Braves was their eighth victory in nine starts, are now-in second place by one percentage point over Detroit Pistons, 103-101 losers to Philadelphia 76ers. And Milwaukee Bucks, who got to a woeful start because of the injuries to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, have their centre back in top form and are just one game below .500 and 2V4 games behind KC- Omaha after beating Cleveland Cavaliers 112-105. Elsewhere in the NBA Fri- day night, New Orleans Jazz beat Houston Rockets 124-112, Boston Celtics defeated Phoenix Suns 112-106, Los Angeles Lakers beat Atlanta Hawks 108-100 and Portland Trail Blazers edged Seattle SuperSonics 90-88.
