Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Schriner favors return of speed and finesse Highsticking causing most of the problems CALGARY CP Sweeney once rookie of the year and twice scoring cham pion of the National Hockey would like to see a return to the old speed and fi nesse in bigtime a Hall of Fame thinks one way this could be accomplished is by getting rid of highsticking by assessment of an automatic penalty if a player raises his stick in the Now superintendent of an oil company building he got his nickname when he was about 10 years Calgary had a semipro baseball team which Schriner watched whenever he could get someone to take him into the The team had a big fellow on first base called BUI Swee ney and he often took me in to see the A milkman who delivered at our house at tended the games and started to call me Little Sweeney be cause I always hung around with this other The name has stuck with me ever His given name is but so few people use it that hes often ignored people who call him of At one time I never used to acknowledge my right There were many times in my career when I walked down a street and peo ple would call me by my first Id ignore them until my wife would jab me and Isnt your name Dave I ended up apologizing to quite a few Schriner still likes to talk and especially about the days when he was in the In my everybody had to be a puck carrier because there wasnt a centre line and passing wasnt allowed over the two Everybody had to carry the puck in order to make plays and get the defencemen out of enabling a player to get into the Now it seems that they just have to skate and knock the fellow I cant understand why there isnt more speed The red line at centre Ice was introduced in the 194344 WON ROOKIE AWARD Schriner started his NHL career with New York Ameri cans In the 193435 scored 40 points in a 48game schedule and won the rookie On what was considered highscoring Can was on right wing with the late Art Chapman at Schriner took consecutive scoring titles the following two years with 45 and 46 points He joined Toronto prior to the 193940 season when the Maple Leafs acquired him in a deal which sent Busher Murray Armstrong Buzz Boll and Doc Homnes to New He retired after the 194546 season with 201 goals and 204 assists in 484 regularseason In eight playoff series he had 18 goals and 11 assists He was a real says now a Calgarj businessman and who 204 NHL He never had a hard shot but would always find an In my books he wa the greatest left winger eve to play in the BLAMES THE FANS who deplores th highsticking which goes on ir the says referees coul stop it if they were given th stopping would improve As soon as a fellow raises his stick in the air he shoul get an automatic If the governors of the league gave president Clarence Campbell authority to clean p some of the he would do it and Im sure oud see a better if the fans keep lamoring for the style of lockey they are playing today I dont see how its going to twice selected as a firstteam allstar and once a secondteam says the 1942 Stanley Cup final be tween Toronto and Detroit Red Wings is the one big event that slicks out in my In the bestofseven I the final won Detroit won the first three but the Leafs came back with four in a nw take the only time in NHL history that a team has come back from a threegame Schriner scored two goals in 3lincluding the tying and clinching In his estimation there were more top players around years ago than today although he says some of the great ones todaj would be stars in any Boston had Eddie who to my way of thinking the greatest defenceman e ex er Turk Broda of Toronto was the money but there were other good ones like Bill Durnan of Montreal and Tiny Thompson and
