DETROIT (AP) - It appears a gap is developing between Sid Abel, veteran general manager of Detroit Red Wings, and Ned Harkness, the first-year coach of the National Hockey League team. I The split was more conjecture than anything else until Sunday night at Olympia Stadium when Abel told one sportswriter he intended to talk to owner Bruce Norris about a comment Harkness made in a local newspaper. "You are the victim of us not doing our homework for the last 10 years," Harkness quoted Norris as telling him. The quote came in a question and answer Sunday feature in the Detroit Free Press. "In that time, we've gone through two expansion drafts," Abel said in a Detroit News story Monday. "I suppose he (Harkness) thinks this league has been sitting around waiting for him to arrive." "I intend? to discuss this matter with Mr. Norris," he added. Abel, who has been general manager with Detroit since April 26,1962, has been with the team in one capacity or another for three decades. He started his National Hockey League career with the Wings in 1938-39 and coached the club 11% seasons-most of them in the dual role of general manager. Harkness was a highly-successful college hockey coach at Cornell and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute before venturing into the NHL by accepting the Red Wings coaching job in April. Last year Abel was both coach and general manager following the firing of coach Bill Gadsby with the season a couple games old. "I hope to get together with Mr. N'orris in a few days," Abel said Monday. "I want to sit down and discuss all policies regarding the Red Wings." Abel has been talking with several teams on trade possibilities but trade talk will likely wait until Abel's "summit meeting" with millionaire owner Norris in the next day or two. EDMONTON (CP) - Three | of the six teams in the Alberta Junior Hockey League dominate the league's two all-star teams which were named Monday. Fourth - place Lethbridge Sugar Kings lead the league with five players named to the all-star team while Red Deer Rustlers and Calgary Mount Royal Cougars, currently tied for first place, had four and three players respectively. Ponoka Stampeders placed one player on the team while Edmonton Maple Leafs and Ed' monton Movers had none. The announcement was made by Ian McKenile, league vice-president, following a poll of the six teams in the league and sports writers in the five centres Leftwinger Howie Colborne and defenceman John Huber, both of the Cougars, were the only two unanimous selections to the team. The third Cougar named, centre Rob LeguiUoux was second only to Colborne in the voting for the four posi tions. All three Calgary players were first-team choices. Filling out the remaining positions on the first team were Graham Parsons of Ponoka, goal, Fraser Robertson of Lethbridge, defence; and Doug Stumph of Red Deer, right wing. Parsons edged out John Dav idson of the Sugar Kings by one point for the first team selection. Davidson was placed on the second team. The two goaltenders held a substantial margin in voting over Dale Hennwood of the Rustlers, the third choke. The remainder of the second team was shared evenly between the Sugar Kings and the Rustlers. Red Deer players selected to the second team were Ken McLash, defence; Brian Ogilvie, right wing; and Mickey | Girard, left wing. Girard was tied with Garry Paskuski for left wing. Consequently, 13 players were named as all-stars instead of 12. The other Lethbridge players on the second team are Lanny McDonald, centre; and Joe Mutch, defence. McDonald and Ogilvie, regularly a centre with the Rustlers, received the same number of votes for centre. McKenzie said Ogilvie was moved to the wing because there were no right-wingers with any substantial number of votes. The players were selected on the basis of two points for a first team vote and one point for a second team selection with Trophy honors Stan McDonald The city fivepin singles and Western Canada rolloffs get under way at Glendale Bowl Sunday, and announcement was made today that the Stan McDonald Memorial Trophy will of Silvernagle suspended EDMONTON (CP) - Ian McKenzie, vice-president of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, said today that Doug Silvernagle of Ponoka Stampeders has been suspended for three games for, shoving a-linesman in a game in Red Deer Sunday The incident took place during a 10-player brawl in the thud period of the game, which Ponoka won 3-1.
