Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thurtday, January 4, THE LfTHIRIDGE HEPUkLD Stem Can Frazier hit harder than a guy ivith a club? Inside Hockey Heavyweight Lyle 'just wouldn't die' has iniuriaied the New York Rangers more Ihan Chicago's Billy Reay. It was the Black Hawks coach who recently laid ii on the line about the high-priced Broadway sestet. "The Rangers ought 10 vin the East Division by 15 said Reay. "Ii they don't, the player; should give half their money back because their coach is being cheated." Keay's verbal harpoon merely nicked tie rip of the ice- berg. Throughout the NHL. resentment has boiled against the Rangers and their president Bill Jennings because they paid such enormous and often undeserved salaries to slaters such as Brad Part, Walt Tkaczuk, Rod Gilbert and Vic Hadiield while clubs like Chicago lost key men to the World Hockey Association. A quiet campaign has been conducted by other NHL clubs to punish the Rangers for what they have cost their colleagues in terms of terribly high salaries: not to mention the fact thai Madison Square Garden currently is renting tie rink at an exhorbitautly high cost to the WKA's New York Raiders against the wishes o: NHL moguls. What's more, the Rangers remanded that the Haiders not raid a single Rarger and won that demand in the Garden lease. "Nobody wants 10 deal with ibe Rangers ii they can help says one XHL insider. "Jennings, like Charlie Finley, will be csiraciied by the other NHL owners." Obviously, the Rangers will no; finish first by 15 points and will be fortuuae. despite their loaded lineup, to finish iirsi. Period. The feeling iCrougho-jt the league ES well as in the Rangers dressing room is that when the chips are down the Boston Bruins nave more heart then the New Yorkers. Vic HadSeld's waliout on Team Canada last September re- mains srjck in the craw of several Rangers and the memory K" Hadfield's ill-advised move continually is revived. Team Csnsda coach Harry Siaden dwells on Hadfield's quitting act in Siaden's new book ami others continue lo allude to it in the proMeration of books on the series, with Russia. One interesting report has it that one of Hadfleld's own teammaies put it neatly about Me. "Can you imagine our dressing room between the second and third periods 01 the seventh game of the Stanley Cup final with us leading Si And Hadiield gels up and says 'oksy. fellas, let's Dot quit now.' Do you think believe Mere ani fari; are asking the would WKA learns up against their NHL coraterparts? "We'd beat three or four of the NKL s-ays New York Riders coach Cirr.ilie He-Try.

A con named Texas Johnson whipped him in his firf. amateur bout and that the lar. cine he lost. As the best athlete in the pen, he was a wall-to-wall celebrity but he rebuffed the prison Athletic director, Li. Clifford Maddax: "Man, you're a screw, I'm a coo."
