Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta -Thuridoy, 7, 1973 THE ItTHBRIDOE HIRAIO if Howe just won't say how much he is asking DETROIT (AP) How much will it take to get Gordie Howe to sign with Houston Aeros of the World Hockey Association? Although dropping along the way, the legendary 9 of Detroit Red Wings is keeping-as close a lid on the amount as a aetminder with a 0.00 goals- against average. He said in an interview Wednesday he should know Monday whether the Aeros are willing to part with a fat enough paycheque to add him to the lineup along with sons Marty and Mark. Howe isn't saying how large a slice of the team's fiscal pie he wants on his plate. "That's something I would like to keep between them and myself." NIIL MADE OFFER Howe also has been offered a tasty bankroll from the Na- tional Hockey League to turn down the WHA team's offer and serve as a "good will ambassa- dor" for the NHL. Howe also declined to say how much the NHL was offer- ing. "The good will thing was talked about three years ago" when he retired, Howe said, "but it never materialized until this point." Howe said reports he is ask- ing the Aeros for million were incorrect. He said a reporter "asked me if I'd sign with the Aeros for million and I said 'Sure? I'd be a damn fool if I SOUNDS NICE But he hinted the figure Frty not be all that inflationary. The million "is kind of high, but it does sound nice." Howe, 45, did confirm he is asking for a four-year tontract, the first season to be spent as a player and the remainder in the front office. His sons signed four-year con- tracts with the Aeros for undis- closed sums Tuesday. "I'd like to be with them to help them get started in the Howe said. "They'd like it too. "It's something I've dreamed about doing for years, and it's within figures of becoming a Howe, who tacked down all tbe NHL's scoring records dur- ing his 25 years with the Wings, said he doesn't know how nego- tiations are going right now. He said business agent Gerry Patterson of Montreal "who did the fine job for the youngsters is handling "I won't even come into it un- til there is a definite offer. "This whole thing is really kind of awkward. It's not an auction, that's not how I work. I never have. "But I feel I'm committed to hearing both offers and I won't make up my mind until then. I have to weigh everything. "Colleen (his wife) and I have built up our cash flow at a pretty nice level here and to give that up would be pretty foolish. "But the whole thought is to play with the kids and spend a few years with them."

OUT OF THE HOUSE BEFORE THEIR Kings lose one player but two sign pacts By THE CANADIAN PRESS Los Angeles Kings, who lost one key player to the World Hockey Association earlier this week, announced Wednesday two others will be back. The National Hockey League club said defenceman Gilles Marotte had signed a five-year contract and Whitey Widing a four-year agreement. Two other NHL teams lost players to WHA rivals. Dejen- cemao Jim Hargreaves moved from Vancouver Canucks to Winnipeg Jets and Brian McKenzie from Pittsburgh Pen- guins to Alberta Oilers. Buffalo Sabres of the NHL signed captain Gerry Meehan to a new multi-year contract and New York Islanders announced the signing of defenceman Denis Potvin, the top pick in the NHL draft, to a multi-year contract. The Kings apparently lost their No. 2 scorer earlier this week when Serge Bernier jumued to Quebec Nordiques of the WHA, but they may fight to keep him, contending he still', has a valid contract. Widing has been their leading scorer for the last three sea- sons. Hargreaves. 23. played 30 games for the Canucks last year and also spent time with Vancouver farm clubs at Roch- ester and Seattle. He played junior hockey in Winnipeg. McKenzie, 23, a left winger, was voted Central Hockey League's oustanding playoff player when he led Omaha Knights to an upset final series win over "Dallas Black Hawks. Meehan, who has scored 74 goals in three years with the Sabres after being selected from Philadelphia Flyers in the 1970 expansion draft, had been contacted by New England Whalers of the WHA. There were strong indications after the NHL draft that Potvin and the Islanders had already reached some kind of an agree- ment. WHA teams didn't even bother to pick him in their draft. Last year he scored 35 goals and 123 points for Ottawa 67s to shatter the Ontario Hockey As- sociation Junior A series scor- ing record for defencemen of 94 points, set by Boston's Bobby Orr in 1965-66 when he pltyed for Oshawa.
