Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 _ Wl irTHMIDM HIMLD Jimmy II, SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan last time I had the pleasure of talking to Vic Stasiuk, the coach of the California Golden Seals of the National Hockey League, was at the Henderson Lake Golf Club. It was at that time that Stasiuk was contem- plating his future in hockey after parting company with the Philadelphia Flyers. It was as if he knew something he wasn't telling. "I'll be back in hockey before the year is he said at that time. He was modest in the assess- ment of the need for his coaching abilities. Oct. 15, he took over the reins of the California club, and since that time has turned them into a definite playoff threat in the western division. At present the Seals are in a tie for third place with St. Louis Blues, each with 37 points. If Stasiuk can keep his club in that spot, he will be doing for Seals' owner Charles FLnley what Fin- ley wanted. The Seals didn't make the playoffs last year and Finley went looking for someone who could get them into post season play. He may have found him in Stasiuk. The Seals, Stasiuk will tell you, are a young club. "We've had our ups and the coach said, "We can score a lot of goals." He wasn't just kidding. A check of the standings show the Seals have scored 138 goals, second only to Chicago's 144 in the west. "Mind Stasiuk adds, "We have been scored on quite a few times. That comes from a young de- fence and inexperience. "We have five players eligible for rookie-of-the- year honors on our Stasiuk said. He went on to say that when they put it all together they do real well. Lethbridge's contribution to major league coach- ing ranks feels his club can make the playoffs. One of the main reasons for his optimism is the club's ability to bounce back. "We've been trounced a couple of times this year but if you check the records you'll find we came back the next game and did ourselves he said. It will be a battle between the Seals, Blues, Phil- adelphia and Pittsburgh Penguins for the last two playoff berths in the west. One almost has to con- cede Chicago and Minnesota North Stars the first two. With 37 points just past half way Stasiuk feels 65 points may do it for a berth for his club. He points out that when his Seals win it seems so do the others and when his club loses the others do too. The Seals have been on the only two extended road trips for this year and Stasiuk feels this could be to his club's advantage. "We played seven games one trip east and six on the he said. "When you have to play teams like Boston, Montreal, New York, Chicago and Tor- onto on one trip it's plenty tough." If Stasiuk had to pick one weak spot on his club It would have to be the right side. The Seals traded for a right winger and got Tom Webster from De- troit Red Wings. Webster scored better than 30 goals in his rookie year for the Wings. Back trouble has put him on the shelf for the remainder of this year. "Losing Webster said Stasiuk. "We were counting on him to help the right side. Stasiuk left Monday for Great Falls and a plane to Minnesota. He wanted to wait until today but with the snow storm he felt he best leave Monday rather than have to shovel his way out this morning, after all, he hasn't shoveled snow since Oct. 15.

ASSOCIATES MORTGAGE CREDIT LIMITED Ratelle trails by one Esposito still firing goals at a rapid pace MONTREAL (CP) Centre Phil Esposilo of Boston Bruins counted five three-goal games on his way to a record 76-goal, 152-point total in National Hockey League regular-season play last season. So far this season Esposito has not been able to come up with one three-goal game, but it hasn't stopped him from holding down first'place in the league's individual scoring race. With 76 points, one more than Jean Ratelle of New York Rangers, Esposito is half way Joey Giardello Kinsmen guest When dinner is served Sat- urday, Feb. 5 at the annual Kinsmen Club Sportsman's Dinner Joey GiardeUo will be at the head table.

He was 76. Keats, considered one of the game's greatest stickhandlers, had been in poor health fjr sev- eral years. Bom March 21, 1895 in Mont- real, he began his hockey car- eer at 14 in the cobalt mining league in Northern Ontario. At 17 he turned professional with Toronto of the National Hockey Association and later played in Edmonton, Chicago, Detroit, Tulsa, Boston and Victoria. His playing career was inter- rupted by the First World War when Keats went overseas with the 228U) Sportsman's Battalion. Returning in 1919, he moved west to Edmonton and assisted in organizing the Western Can- ada League. nual dinner set for the Exhibi- tion Pavilion. Giardello, a former middle- weight champion of the world, starting boxing professionally in 1948 after receiving an hon- orable discharge from the U.S. Army. During the course of his ca- reer Giardello fought 139 times professionally. He won 109 of these fights while losing 21 and battling to nine draws. One of his draws came in a 1960 bout with middleweight champ Gene Fullmer in Boze- man, Mont. On Dec. 7, 1963 in Atlantic City, he fought middle- weight champion Dick Tiger. It was Tiger -who had beaten Fullmer for the crown. Giardello became champion after his first fight with Tiger. He defended his crown on two occasions during the next two years. The night of Oct. 8 will be long remembered. Giardello lost his title to the same Dick Tiger he had defeated. He re- tired from the ring in Nov. 1967. Giardello, his wife Rosalie and their four sons now make their home to Cherry Hill, New Jedsey where he spends his spare time raising funds for the mentally retarded. He was named to the President's Com- mittee on Mental Retardation. He currently works as a life insurance executive in New York. Giardello joins master of cer- emonies Normie Kwong, foot- ball standouts John Brocking- lon of the Green Bay Packers, Wayne Harris of the Calgary Stampeders and Don Jonas of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and featured speaker Bob Uecker.

Rightwijiger Rod Gilbert of New York and defenceman Bobby Orr of Boston share third spot with 63 points each, one more than Rangers' Vic Had- fleld. Esposito, who leads the goal- getters with 37, is only four goals off his pace of last season when he had 41 after 43 games. Esposito and Hadfield, who have both scored 15 power-play goals, are well on their way to breaking Esposdtn's record of 25 established last season. Richard Martin, rookie left winger with Buffalo Sabres, is right behind the more experi- enced pair with 14 power-play goals. Martin, seventh in the in- dividual1 race with 52 fewer than Bobby Hull of Chi- cago Black on his way to set a record of his own. APPROACHING RECORD Martin is only seven goals short of the record for a rookie set last season by team-mate Gilbert Penreault, who counted 38. Martin and Hull have the same number of the Chicago winger has 26 as- sists, five more than the rookie. The goattenddng race has moved from a two-way battle to a three-way engagement. Tony Esposito and Gary Smith of Chicago, along with fesare Maniflgo and Gump of Minnesota Nortii Stars, have had things pretty much to themselves of late. But while Esposito and Smith continue to lead with a com- bined goals-against average of 1.90, Boston's Gerry Cheevers and Ed Johnston have pulled into a second-place tie with the Minnesota pair. Boston and Minnesota now show with identical 2.18 aver- ages. The last time a Bruin goalie grabbed the Vezina Tro- phy was in 1941-42, when Frank Brimsek won it. Gary Smith is the individual shutout leader'with four, while Chicago is the team leader with seven. SCORING LEADERS Espositfl, Bos Ratelle, NY Gilbert, NY Orr, Bos NY R.

I'LL ADMIRE A BLOKE Sfci lacking Brundage to blame TORONTO (CP) The man in charge of raising funds for Canada's national ski team said Monday the adverse publicity given the sport in recent weeks by Avery Brundage, chairman of the International Olympic Committee, is responsible for a lull in donations. Donald Crawford of Toronto, national fund-raising chairman for ISK Canadian Ski associa- tion, said the fund is shy of its target. "I lay the blame squarely on Avery Brundage's shoulders. He has given the image of profes- sionalism to world skiers and it's hurting the entire said Crawford. "All the public reads about these days is how much money skiers In Europe are reputed to be making, but it's unfair to generalize the situation of a mi- aority on to the whole sport. "Our Canadian team is 100 per cent amateur and has abided very strictly to the regu- lations laid down by the Federa- tion Internationale de Ski. But that apprently hasn't given ua any immunity from the gener- ally-poor image Brundage and the IOC have created." Crawford, whose daughter, Judy, now rates as Canada's chief hope on the Olympic slopes at Sapporo, Japan, next month since Betsy Clifford of Ottawa broke bones in both an- kles during the weekend, re- lated one of several incidents that have disappointed canvas- sers in recent weeks. "He (the canvasser) called on this chap who'd given the year previous and the contribu- tor, when asked if he'd be do- nating to the team, said 'I'm not so sure I'll be giving any- thing this year. By the way, how much does a skier HOLDS BLACKLIST Brundage, in his efforts la root out commercialism within the skiing community, has threatened every country en- tered in the Winter Olympics with banishment from the Games if skiers on his blacklist are allowed to compete for their country. "The list, believed to number 40 of the world's top skiers, is be in the IOC chair- man's possession after a de- tailed search of IOC files, man- uscripts and pictm-es at Olym- pic headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland. The 83-year-old patriarch of Phillies'' shortstop made Bright future for Larry Bowa By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer When you're 28 years old and touted as one of the best, if not the best, shortstop in the Na- tional Baseball League is there a great deal of pressure? For Larry Bowa of the Phila- delphia Phillies pressure is like a ground ball, if the bounce is good it can be handled easily. Ground balls, and 1 guess it can be said, pressures, have been gobbled up by Bowa at an almost unbelievable rate in his two short years in the major leagues. The 1971 season will long be remembered by Bowa as his finest hour to date. Bowa was a Lethbridgo vis- itor this past weekend along with Ed Ferenz, a Lethbridge native son who is now the travelling secretary for the Phillies. Both were guests of the LDS Father and Son ban- quet. Shortstop Bowa had an In- credible season for the Phillies.
