YOU CAN'T MlSSj Wl1 THAT LITTLE DARLIN1 IF YOU PLAY YOUR CARDS RlOHT, MATE y MISTAKE NUMBER OSS, SINGLE N50NT WIPE THEIR FEET.' By THE CANADIAN PRESS The World Hockey Associ- ation may be able to do what the National Hockey League has been unable to do, negotiate two of the greatest names in professional hockey to the same team. Word out of Montreal Sunday night had Henri Richard consid- ering a jump to the WHA's Houston Aeros, probably joining the Howe and their father, Gordie. The Aeros have been wooing the Howe family since the WHA draft two weeks ago when coach Bill Needham and assist- ant Doug Harvey claimed the two TJ S.-born Howes on a tech- were pros under that country's amateur ratings. The Aeros' management j claimed the is 18. i Marty is collecting I weekly to play junior hockey in i Toronto and therefore pros. In the ensuing discussions with the Howes. Gordie in- dicated the Houston club was also interested in him and that, for the right money, he would consider an end to his two-jear retirement for a chance to play with the boys. RICHARD LISTENS A meeting in Houston today could decide the boys' future as well as Gordie's. Harvej, who talked with Richard" during the weekend, said the Montreal Canadiens' captain reacted "very encour- aging'1 to the Houston over- tures. "I'm convinced Henri can play for at least three more years if he said Har- vey. Richard is reported to have asked for in a two-year pact. If Houston can negotiate the coup, it would bring together two of the most exciting names in Hockey. Howe played 25 years with Detroit Red Wings and holds every major offensive record in the NHL record book. Richard is the younger brother of Maurice (Rocket) Richard, one of the most ex- plosive and feared scorers in NHL history. And while the Aeros were making noises on the player front, word from where the elder Howe is a Red Wing that two groups there are interested in purchasing Minnesota Fighting Saints and moving the finan- cially-plagued WHA franchise to the Michigan city. RINK A BARRIER The two beaded by Ralph Wilson, owner of the National Football League's Buf- falo Bills, the other by Dr. Charles consid- ering a million price tag for the team. The biggest drawback to ei- ther prospective owner is the rental price for Cobo Hall where the WHA team would be located. Reaume thought the rental fee against 11 per cent of the gate too steep. Reaume's group, made up of doctors and dentists, has al- ready lined up a Wing mentor Johnny and could offer alternative em- ployment for a number of the NHL team's who are in the process of negotiating next year s contracts Mickey Redmond, s 52-goal scorer with the Wings in 1972- 73, is already reported asking a multi-year fl million deal from the Wings and toying with a Vancouver WHA offer which his lawyer. Bob Woolf of Boston, said is not being used "as a le- ver on the Red Wings to pry more money for my client." TALK CONTRACT Also lining up new contracts with the Wings this year are veteran captain Alex Del- vecchio, Nick Libett, Al Karlan- der and Guy Charron. Meanwhile, in Trois-Riviercs, Que.. Roland Atercier, vice- president in charge of junior hockey for the Canadian Ama- teur Hockey Association, said Sunday Houston s interpretation of the amateur rules in the U S. was a mistake He said that while the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) considers the Howe boys ineligible because they played major junior hockey in Canada, the brothers are eli- gible for the U.S. Olympic team. He offered Henry Boueha of the Bed Wings as an example. Boueha played major junior hockey with Winnipeg Jeta of the Western Canada Hockey League before playing with the U.S. Olympic team in 1972.
