Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Wedneiday, It, 1973 National races set for Saturday and Sunday Canada's best will be at West Castle How will West Castle stand under all the success it has been tlie recipient of lately? In all likelihood, they will do very well. It is no secret that the ski facilities at West Castle help- ed Lethbridge and Southern Alberta successfully acquire the 1975 Canada Winter Games. The West Castle runs rank among the best in Can- ada. This past weekend Marc Lalonde, minister of nation- al health and welfare, paid southern Alberta a visit. He took time out, after skiing at West Cahtle, to remark on the facilities: "The ski runs at West Castle are excellent. They will be more than adequate for the Canada Winter Games in 1D75." It was what he saw at West Castle and other southern At-: berta centres that prompted him to say, "I'm convinced the site selection committee made the best choice for the Games." It is no surprise then, that this coming weefcend, Satur- day and Sunday, a gathering of some of Uis finest skiing talent in Canada will con- verge on West Castle for the National races. Heading the list of entiles for the two-day event will be Betsy Clifford along with the Kreiner sisters, Kathy and Laurie and Judy Crawford. The races will be staged Saturday and Sunday with starting times each day set for ill the morning. Miss Crawford, who turned 21 three days before Christ- mas, was the first Ontario skier to make the National Ski team. She was 10 years of age at the time. In 1968, she was forerunner for the Olympic downhill event in Grenoble, France. Her first good placing came at the St. Gervais downhill in 1970 when sl-.a startled the interna- tional ski world with a fifth place finish. -Her success at St. Gervais led her to a J9lh place finish in the world that year in downhill. In March of 1971 at Aspen, Colo., Judy won the U.S. Na- tional championships, placing second in the giant slalom and fourth in the slalom and downhill. She also placed first in the downhill at the Cana- dian championships at Gira- baldi, B.C. In 1972 at Sapporo, Japan, she missed a bronze medal by a mere fraction of a second and settled for fourth place in the slalom. The ski season 1971-72 was a big one for Kreiner. Her best five results show her to be first on one occasion, sixth tsvo other times, ninth once and llth once. Her first place finish was in the German Ski Champion- ships'in Rupholding. She won the giant slalom. Her remain- ing finishes came in World Cup competition. She was sixth in the down- hill at Grindewald, and sixth in the slalom at Arosa. Her ninth place finish came in downhill at Crystal Mountain while she came in llth in Banff. Laurie, three years older than sister Kathy, also had what can only be described as a successful. 1971-72 year. She was third in the giant slalom at Rupholding, and fourth in the Olympics at Sapporo in the giant slalom. The giant slalom also earn- ed her two sixlh place fin- ishes, one each at Banff and Crystal Mountain, both in World Oup competition. Besides her fourth in giant slalom at Sapporo, she was also 12th in the slalom and then finished the year with an 18th place finish at Badga- tein. West Castle is continually preparing for the 1975 Can- ada Winter Gomes. Officials are hopeful that the staging of this week's Nationals will be just the first in a series of na- tional events at West Castle between now and February 1975.

It was a straight player deal No cash was involved. "For the first time since I've been here, I have four start said Martin, beaming. "A the end of last year was the first time I even had three, don't think any other team in the league has four like that.

It now appears, regardless of whether or not the WHA raided them blind or ignored them completely, they are their own worst enemies. The Broadway Blues will be on the outside looking in when the Stanley Cup finals begin. How can a team, so heavily laden with talent, be in such a state? I don't have the answers and it's quite obvious the Ran- gers' brass don't either. Coach Billy Rcay of the Chicago Black Hawks figur- ed the Rangers would be shoe- ins for the Prince of Wales trophy that goes to the first place finishers in the Eastern Division. There will be very little silverware added to the Rangers trophy case this time around.

Ottawa win, their eighth Who do I like in the Stanley Cup playoffs? I would have to go with Montreal Canadiens il I were to bet with my head. But that would never do, now would it? I remember once saying that if the Montreal Canadi- ens were to play the Viet Cong, I would cheer for the Viet Cong. That was at a time, however, when 1 was prejudiced against the Cana- diens. My support for teams followed a definite pattern. I didn't like the New York Yan- kees of baseball, the Green Bay Packers of football and Arnold Palmer did nothing for me as far as golf was con- cerned. But now that I have been trained to be unbiased in my opinion, I can't see any club defeating the Habs, if the Montreal based club stays healthy. Actually, my wallet, after many bouts of betting with my heart, tells me the Cana- diens are my best hel. When the final lally is listed the Habs will have lost less games than any team in the history of the NHL. At pres- ent they have lost just 10 losses and with three games remaining arc assured of tying the mark of least losses even if they lose all three of their last games. Checking the schedule shows Montreal playing Chicago Black Hawks at home tonight, the Rangers Saturday and then they finish the season in Boston Sunday. The Canadi- ens are a proud club and so I can't see them losing all three with a record right in their grasp.

With this in mind, the Cana- diens will have the momen- tum heading into the quar- ter-finals against either the Buffalo Sabres and Detroit Red Wings. Both the Red Wings and Sabres played Tuesday evening. Neither the Wings nor Sab- res are expected to give the Habs much trouble. I don't foresee a sweep of games but I'see an exit of the Wings in six and the Sabres in only five, depending on who gets in. I have already sialed that the Rangers will be on the outside and it will be the Bruins who will put them there. The Hangers have come up flat of late and I'm afraid their tailspin will remain with them as they go out in six games to the Bruins and what would appear a healthy Bobby Orr.

NOW PAIR Chicago will sideline who- ever, be it the St. Louis Blues or Los Angeles Kings, in five games in the Western Division quarter-final and will be joined by Philadelphia's Flyers after they have dis- posed of the Minnesota North Stars in a six-game outing. The Hawks are the class of the west. Despite losing Bobby The best series of all, from where I sit, will be the semi- final between Chicago and Boston. Both clubs are scrappy and both like to score. The Hawks have better goallending in Tony Esposito but the Bruins have Orr and the other Espo- sito on the board of directors of the NHL Mafia, Phil. The Bruins will oust the Hawks in seven games but they will have to do it in Chicago and that should be fun. Hull they maintained their high perch simply because the other teams were also hurt by the WHA gold market. In the Flyer King series, the Flyers will advance. They are not only tougher, but they are better all round. Besides that, they have as good a hockey player as there is in the west in Bobby Clarke. The Flyers' brief fling at success will end in the semi- final with Montreal and the key to their setback will be the same that has led to their success so far this year, inti- midalion. Flyers, to a mnn, claim to be the toughest biuich of hockey heroes ever assembled on one team. But you can't score from the penalty box. The Canadiens, not ready to be intimidated, will give Ihe Flyers just enough rope to hang themselves and it will be all over in six. New England Cleveland Oltawa Philadelphia New York..
