Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Things may get worse Red Wing future clouded --------- - - �� Prldoy, January 1971 - THE IETHBRIDOE HIRAID -  By NICK FERRIS Canadian Press Staff Writer Probably at no other time in their 44-year history in the National Hockey League has the future of Detroit Red Wings been more clouded. When the Red Wings lost 7-4 Thursday night to Buffalo Sabres, one of the NHL's two new expansion clubs, it was their ninth loss in 11 games and increased the average number of goals scored against them in those 11 games to more than six. In other action, Boston Bruins defeated Vancouver Canucks 6-4 and Philadelphia Flyers and Los Angeles Kings played to a 6-5 tie. Adding to the uncertainty within the Detroit organization was the resignation Tuesday of Sid Abel after nearly 30 seasons as player and coach, then gen- ANDY CAPP He got along with Abel Bishop can't understand DETROIT (AP) - "That other guy," accused by resigned general manager Sid Abel Wednesday of being the root of all Red Wing hockey evils, answered his chief critic reluctantly Thursday-*nd blasted the Detroit press. "I don't want to get into any mud-slinging," said Jim Bishop, axecutive director of Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League. "I like the man (Abel). I've eaten with him, drank with him, been to his home. "I'm somewhat bewildered and perplexed by his decision. There's been no apparent fric- tion between us in 18 months, with the exception of the first week I was here. "We had an argument then, but that was cleared up by a handshake. He never said anything about this to me before. If he felt this way, he should have said so in a personal conference. We've had nothing but amiable relations." TOOK PLACE EARLY The argument referred to took place when Bishop first joined the Red Wings organization. Abel said the two men almost got into a fist fight when Abel said Bishop had no business at a club meeting ."G a d s b y Scholarship for Heinmaim MEDICINE HAT (CP) -Ernie Heinemann, whose hockey career was ended by an eye injury in October, will receive an $8,000 scholarship from the Western Canada Hockey League. League president Ron Butlin said today the scholarship fund will be kicked off with a benefit game in Medicine Hat next Thursday. Medicine Hat Tigers, for whom Heinemann was a captain until his injury, will play Calgary Centennials. Butlin said the scholarship is being set up on a four-year basis, at $2,000 a year. "All proceeds from the game, and from the sale of programs will be collected by myself and deposited by me into a trust account for Ernie on behalf of the league." Heinemann, 19, played minor hockey in Vermilion, Alta., and joined Ponoka Stampeders of the Alberta Junior League in 1967. He played for three months with Edmonton Oil Kings of the WCHL before being traded to the Centennials. He was picked up by Medicine Hat last year in a draft. Last season, Heinemann, a defenceman, scored six goals and 36 assists. Generals deadlock In the only scheduled City Recreation Hockey League game last night the Labor Club matched the M and K Generals goal for goal and came up with a 3-3 draw. Bob Reid gave the Generals an early lead in the first period butwatched it vanish with Lome Gray's marker one minute later. After a scoreless second period Don Bruchet put the Club ahead midway through the final frame before Tom Yip and Al Ferchuk allowed the Generals the upper hand. At the 13:22 mark Al Rown-tree, a consistent goal scorer for the club, notched the equalizer which rounded out the scoring. stepped between us and broke It up," Abel said, referring to former coach Bill Gadsby. Although his reaction to Abel Thursday was relatively mild; Bishop, a onetime lacrosse coach from Oshawa, Oct., bad harsh words for the Detroit press corps: "I'm not the hockey expert," he said, "but it looks to me like the club's main problems have been injuries and vicious nuts in the papers about division. "This team's not loaded with depth, so the injuries hurt badly. But the division hinted at constantly in the press had to hurt the team. We (Bishop and coach Ned Harkness) have been maligned since we arrived here. 1 don't' think we can win in this thing." Asked about Abel's contention Wednesday that Harkness was "not a coach," and that "all problems" with the Wings date from Bishop's arrival. "I would have to say that Ned Harkness has been placed in the role of a scapegoat for anything and everything that went wrong I think his record speaks for itself. NEEDS WORK "The team has been out of the playoffs for three of the last four years. It needs a lot of work and Harkness has worked hard. I don't know how he (Abel) could blame us for the team missing the playoffs for three years prior to our coming here. "There are a lot of things that could be wrong with the team. Anything's possible. It could all be my fault, although I don't think it is. "If it would be in the best Interest of the team for me to get fired, fine. But if I was fired I won't go out shouting. This is a time for adjustment and understanding." Of Abel's sarcastic comment on his and Harkness' lacrosse backgrounds-"Maybe w e should have a lacrosse team"- Bishop said: "That's a red herring. "Ned's been a hockey coach for over 25 years. I think that comment has no basis. It's just a red herring." COME AND LOOK US OVER SEE ON DISPLAY Toyota Crown Sedan TOYOTA TRAVEL CENTRE "Southern Alberta's Largest Import Car Dealer" Coutts Highway, LETHBRIDGE Phone 327-3165 eral manager of the Red Wings. Abel took over behind Detroit's bench in the 1957-68 season and controlled both positions for most of the last nine years until Ned Harkness was named coach this year. RECORD GOOD As a coach, Abel, an all-star centre for 13 years, took Detroit to the Stanley Cup playoffs seven times, advancing to the finals on four occasions. Abel's departure, after be failed to gain support of owner Bruce Norris in a bid to have Harkness fired, may leave a gap in the Detroit organization big enough to sink the team. The loss Thursday left Detroit only six points ahead of last-place Buffalo in the East Division standings. At Buffalo, veteran Phil Goy-ette paced the Sabres with four assists and a goal while Paul Andrea scored a pair of goals. The Sabres, like a shark sensing blood, scored three goals in each of the first two periods to overwhelm the Red Wings. COME FROM BEHIND At Boston, the powerful Bruins allowed the Canucks a 3-2 first  period lead before they unleashed a four-goal barrage to take control of the game before 40 minutes had elapsed. Centre Phil Esposito ended a mild scoring slump with his 35th and 36th goals of the season. The 28-year-old Sault Ste." Marie, Ont, native also had an assist as he increased his NHL scoring lead to 75 points, 11 more than team-mate Bobby Orr, who holds down second spot. Orr notched his 16th goal and picked up an assist. Esposito nearly established a modern-day scoring record when he appeared to have completed his fifth three-goal game of tiie season. However, referee Wally Harris disallowed Esposi-to's third goal, ruling that play had been stopped before the puck went into the net. The Bruins tied the NHL's record for most shorthanded goals in a season by a team when Dallas Smith connected with Boston's 14th tins season while the Canucks held a man advantage late in the first period. Chicago Black Hawks set the mark of 14 shorthanded goals in the 196445 season. INCREASE LEAD The win increased Boston's grip on first place in the East to three points over idle New York Rangers, who have 58 points. Rookie Dale Tallon counted twice, his ninth and 10th, for the Canucks, the league's other expansion team. Vancouver remained in fifth spot in the East, with 31 points, seven points back of Toronto Maple Leafs and three ahead of Detroit. At Philadelphia, Bill Flett's goal at 12:11 of the final period capped a Los Angeles rally that brought the Kings back from a three-goal deficit midway through the second period. Flett fired from the boards to the left of goaltender Doug Fav ell, who attempted to sweep the puck away with his stick. But the puck deflected off the Philadelphia goalie's stick into the net. The Kings took a 1-0 lead two minutes into the game but Philadelphia came back with four consecutive goals, setting up Los Angeles' rally. BUFFALO 7 OITROIT 4 First Period - 1.

English team captain fined Soccer fans upset with Moore Bv RODNEY PINDER LONDON (AP) - The golden image of Bobby Moore, England team captain and one of the world's top soccer stars, appeared badly tarnished today-stained, perhaps for life, by a night out on the town. Soccer fans and sports writers bitterly attacked the handsome player they have idolized since he led England to victory in the 1966 World Cup. His offence was to dance and drink at a night spot in Blackpool until 2:30 on a Saturday morning before leading his club West Ham into a vital afternoon Football Association Cup match. West Ham, eager to make a run in the contest because of its rock-bottom showing in the First Division of the English League, lost 4-0 to Blackpool. Moore and three other club players-including former England star Jimmy Greaves-were fined by West Ham management Thursday. The amounts were not officially disclosed, but sources said Moore had to pay up at least one week's wages, about �180. FANS BEEF "I think Bobby Moore must really be finished with West Ham fans now," said William White, leader of a militant group of West Ham supporters. White said his group planned Red Deer, Ponoka draw PONOKA, Alta. (CP) - A closely-fought game between Red Deer Rustlers and Ponoka Stampeders ended in a 3-3 tie in the Alberta Junior Hockey League Thursday night before 600 fans. The first period ended 1-1 after Brian Ogilvie of Red Deer and Daryl Wallis of the Stampeders scored. Ponoka led 3-2 after two periods with goals by Ray Bansley and Rod Martin. Lome Bartel added the Rustler's second point. Dwayne Bolkowy of Red Deer tied the score at 2:59 of the third period. No overtime was played. The equal strength of the two teams also appeared in the shots on goal. Jerome Keller made 37 saves in the Red Deer net while Graham Parson turned away 36 shots from the Ponoka goal. Red Deer drew eight of 12 minor penalties. to picket West Ham Stadium at the club's next home game to rub in their protests against Moore. An unnamed West Ham player not involved in the night out was widely quoted as saying: "There is nobody at the club who doubts Moore's ability. He is a great player-but sometimes we wonder if he sets the right example as captain." Moore's name became a household word for glittering soccer success with England's rise to the pinnacle of world soccer four years ago. Rolloffs open this weekend The city five-pin singles and Western Canada rolloffs gets under way at Glendale Bowl Sunday afternoon at one o'clock. Four rinks leading in Masters way CALGARY (CP)-Four rinks have moved Thursday night to within one victory of qualifying for the quarter-final of the Masters curling championship which will be played Saturday night. Ron Northcott, three  time world champion, and Rick Dunsmore, both of Calgary, Bob Pickering of Milestone, Sask., and Ron Anton of Edmonton were Thursday's big winners. Northcott advanced defeating Lloyd Wooley of Calgary 11-9 while Pickering whipped Lionel Wood of Edmonton 8-3. Anton upset Doug Wankel of Elbow, Sask., 9-8 in an extra end and Dunsmore surprised Hector Gervais of Edmonton 9-6. Northcott and Anton scored their victories in the last end without tiie benefit of the last shot. Northcott scored two when Wooley was eight inches heavy on a four-foot draw and Anton stole the winner when Wankel was three inches short on a similar draw. Pickering plays Anton and Northcott plays Dunsmore for qualifying berths tonight. Playing continued in the B and C sections of the three-life qualifying draw with 12 rinks remaining in the B group from which two Mill qualify. Four will qualify from C Saturday.

In this 16-game rolloff, the top seven men and eight women will advance to the Western Canada final in Edmonton during Easter week. Meanwhile, the city singles championships will be held in conjunction with this rolloff with defending champions Ken Malcomson and Margaret Smith entered. The winners are determined on a 16-game total pintail. This year's champion in the male ranks will take home the Stan MacDonald memorial trophy. The trophy has been donated by local sportsman Gordon Hoselton in memory of the Lethbridge bowling star who died suddenly last month. Stan, who devoted a great deal of his time to the Youth Bowling Congress, was for many years one of the high average trundlers in the city and a former member of the southern zone team which competed in the Western Canada finals. The flaxen-haired skipper, who has played 85 times for his country, was feted and honored. The Queen bestowed him with the Order of the British Empire. His earnings from soccer and connected business enterprises soared to a reputed �25,000 a year. But things began to go wrong In 1970, when England was eliminated in the World Cup in Mexico by West Germany. A suspicion of stealing a gold bracelet in Colombia still hangs over Moore's head. Colombian police cleared him-but that country's courts have not yet done so. West Ham has been losing regularly and is in danger of slipping to the Second Division. Critics have recently been suggesting Moore's leadership is not good enough to get West Ham out of the trough. am FERNIE Open Continuously Until Jan. 14th -Steep slopes and powder snow for the expert -Groomed moderate slopes for the non-expert Site of the 1971 Pontine Cup Races Jan. 9th to 11th PHONE 423-6966, 423-6041, 423-6649 Lethbridge Sash and Door PRODUCTS AND SERVICES * WINDSHIELDS * INSULATED SEALED PICTURE WINDOWS * PLEXIGLAS * MIRRORS * GLASS - All TYPES * ALUMINUM STORE FRONTS * ALUMINUM DOORS AND WINDOWS * ARISTOCRAT WOOD WINDOWS * ARISTOCRAT WOOD CUPBOARDS and CABINETS ir ALUMINUM SIDING and AWNINGS ir GARAGE DOORS and HARDWARE ir BLACKBOARDS and TACKBOARDS * HARDWOOD and SOFTWOOD LUMBER * PLYWOODS LETHBRIDGE "^me........
