Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16-THE LETHBRIDQE February STAN FISCHLER NEW YORK, N. Y. The nicest man I've met in 20 years on the hockey beat is Frank Boucher, former New York Rangers' center, Hockey Hall of Famer, and onetime Rangers coach and manager. I worked for Boucher as Rangers publicist in 1954-55 and delighted in listening to his tales of hockey's "good old days" when "Boosh" centered for Bill and Bun Cook, forming perhaps the best line in NHL history For years and years, I hoped that Frank would put his sweet stories on paper so that the rest of the world could enjoy them as much as I did. I am happy to report that this finally has happened. Boucher's new book, "When The Rangers Were has just been published and is easily the besk chunk of hockey nostalgia available between two covers. Collaborating with that excellent Toronto Star author Trent Frayne, Boucher weaves wonderful story after story in a manner that is never tiresome and always delightful. To me, one of the best of all was his recounting of the famed "Lester Patrick incident." That was the night an aging 45-year-old Rangers' manager went into the nets after his regular goalie, Lome Chabot had been seriously injured in a Stanley Cup game. For decades Canadians have been deceived by an assortment of tales about what really happened that night Usually, the yarns were well woven with fiction Now, at last, Boucher takes us inside the Rangers' dressing room that fateful night in 1928 at Montreal's Forum. "We were playing the great Montreal Maroons in the Stanley Cup said Boucher, "and lost the opener, 2-0." The Patrick saga developed in the second period of the second game when Rangers' goaltender Lome Chabot was hit squarely on the left eyeball by a Nels Stewart shot. The eye hemorrhaged, making it impossible for Chabot to continue play. Alas. The Rangers had no spare goaltender. They didn't know what to do It was then that Boucher suggested that Lester Patrick was the only possible goaltending replacement. After a brief pause Patrick agreed. "The dressing room noise lessened when the guys heard that Lester was going into the said Boucher. "Now you could hear a skate drop. There wasn't a sound where there had been a din. Lester asked Odie Cleghorn, the Pittsburgh coach, to take over the bench for him, and led us out onto the ice At first only a light murmur swept down from the arena but then as the fans recognized the silver-thatched number one they raised a sudden and prolonged cry of surprise According to Boucher, the mighty Maroons immediately became overconfident and taking ridiculously long shots at Old Man Patrick Boucher recalled, "was in his glory; he really seemed to be enjoying himself. Every time the puck came toward him he'd drop to his knees and smother it. I honestly think almost anyone could have played in our nets the rest of that game. "The players were absolutely determined that no Maroon would get close enough for a dangerous shot, and after two periods the game still was scoreless." Bill Cook put New York ahead, 1-0, in the third period and, with less than half the period left it appeared that Old Man Patrick actually would score a shutout Then, Nels Stewart spoiled the script with a long shot from center ice. "Lester had plenty of time to prepare for said Boucher. "He waited until the last moment and then decided to drop to his knee to make the save. But the puck, which wasn't travelling very fast at all, trickled through his legs into the net." So, the game went into sudden death overtime and just about everyone in The Forum, including the Rangers, believed that the underdog New Yorkers were through. "I didn't feel too said Boucher. "Our players had worked so hard defending Lester that they were far more tired than the Maroons I feared that the longer the game progressed the more likely we were to yield the game ending goal." Just seven minutes later, Boucher made a legend out of Lester Patrick's goal tending by scoring the winning goal for the Rangers! Two games later they won the Stanley Cup. Boucher will be the featured guest at the Ed Bruchet Night which is slated to go March 2. Tainsh blasts CASA officials EDMONTON (CP) The chairman of the board of the Western Canada Major Fastball League said Friday the two ranking officials of the Canadian Amateur Softball Association should resign unless they can provide more consistency than they have managed recently. Bill Tainsh of Edmonton, a founder of the WCMFL, Memorial Cup set CALGARY (CP) The champions of the Quebec Major Junior League and the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A circuit will meet in the opening game of this year's Memorial Cup for the national tier one junior hockey championship. The round-robin championship at the Calgary Corral opens May S with the Eastern teams and the following night the Ontario club and the Western Canada Hockey League champion play. The western team will play the Quebec squad May 8, according to details for (be event announced Thursday. A playoff, if required, will go May 10, followed by the final between the top two teams May 12. A playoff, added this year, was prompted by last year's round-robin that ended with all three teams having one win and one defeat Medicine Hat Tigers of the WCHL were eliminated from toe final on the basis of goals for and against objected to a statement by CASA executive director Larry Skinner in Ottawa Thursday that players in the Ontario Fastball League and the WCMFL had been declared professionals and would require reinstatement before playing amateur fastball with affiliated leagues this year. Tainsh said CASA president Bob Van Impe of Saskatoon was as inept as Skinner. "They both should resign." he said. "We don't care what the CASA calls us. "We declared last year this is a major league. What we want is a definition of amateur and the CASA has never provided that" Tainsh produced a letter during a brief interview Friday showing that the CASA says no players, except those who joined Montreal Royals in a Canadian American Professional League that folded, will be declared professional for their 1973 activities. The letter said players in the WCMFL and OFL would be declared professionals in "I'm trying to protect the said Tainsh. think a player who wasn't good enough for our league should be able to return to amateur fastball without sitting out a year Tainsh also objected to a statement by Skinner that a meeting has been scheduled between the CASA and the OFL. "I was told by an Ontario official today that no meeting is scheduled I know we haven't been invited to any such meeting. "I wish somebody would get some consistency into this ruling body. If Skinner and Van Impe can't do it, they should get out, so somebody else can." Why should hockey be any different By AL COLLETT! NEW YORK (CP) Why should hockey be any different than any other business? Alan Eagleson, executive director of the National Hockey League Players' Association, says it shouldn't be, although owners think otherwise. The NHL dropped the oft- criticized reserve clause in favor of a one-year option system in new contracts, but coupled il with an "equalization" system of compensation. A team losing a player who elects to play out his option year for the purpose of signing with another team in the NHL would have to be compensated by the club which signs him. In other words, the player's new club would have to make payment in cash or talent, or both, equal to the value of the player signed. Eagleson says the players' association isn't "really disturbed abSiit an option clause as such." "But we are disturbed about the fact that the NHL owners want an option clause plus compensation." After a meeting in New York earlier this week with four NHL governors, Eagleson posed a hypothetical situation, pointing to Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins, a player representative sitting next to him. "Suppose Phil Esposito wants to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs. He's got two years left on his contract with the Bruins, this year and next year. "He advises them next year, This is my last year with Boston. I want to go to Toronto.' He goes over to Harold Ballard, the owner of the Leafs, and tries to make a deal. "The first thing Harold has to think of is not whether he can use Phil Esposito, not whether he can pay Phil what he wants, but primarily he must concern himself with one factor: 'What will I have to give up if I take Phil Esposito.' "And he might say, 'I have to give up Darryl Sittler, Rick Keboe, Inge Hammarstrom and a goaltender, and I don't think I can afford to do that. Therefore, Phil, I'm sorry but you'll have to go back and play in Boston. And good luck to you. I can't afford to have you.' Esposito believes, too, a player should have his choice where he wants to play. Eagleson's answer to the problem is for NHL owners to sign their better players to long-term contracts, as Boston and Philadelphia Flyers already have done. "Why should hockey be any different from any other business. If the owners want to protect their employees and protect their franchise, all they have to do is sign their key players to long-term contracts "Why should owners be given any additional rights simply because-they are in hockey rather than in any other QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH CwtHtod DwiM HwhMte CapHol Furntam Mdg.
