The Canadian Armed Give it some thought. Rangers find out money can't buy everything Stanley Cup has been purchased once By DAVE ANDERSON' New York T'mes Sen ice NEW YORK When the World Hockey Association began raiding the National Hockey League for players nearly a year ago, the New York Rangers preserved their nucleus or talent by opening their treasury. Brad Park, Vic Hadfield, Jean Ratelle, Rod Gilbert, Walt Tkaczuk, Jim Neilson, Rod Selling and Ed Giacomin suddenly were men of opulence, some with salaries reported to be as high as each. Other teams kept their pocketbooks closed to certain players, ra- ther than let the moths es- cape. The players escaped in- stead. Gerry Cheevers, John McKenzie and Derek "Sander- son defected from the Bos- ton Bruins, the holders of the Stanley Cup, although San- derson later returned. Bobby Hull deserted the Chicago Black Hawks and J. C. Trem- blay left the Montreal Canadi- ens. On paper, particularly the paper used for the inter- nal revenue sendee's form 1040, the Rangers had the N.H.L.'s most i m p r e s sive team. "I never thought you could buy the Stanley the Bangers' president, Bill Jen- nings, said shortly before his capitalists began to perspire at training camp. "But maybe we have." When the Rangers, after a disappointing third place fin- ish in the east division, de- throned the Bruins in the op- ening round of the playoffs, the presidential theory ap- peared plausible. But when the Rangers were eliminated by the Black Hawks this week, they realized that the Cup has been bought only once, in 1893 when Lord Stanley of Preston purchased the silver trophy for and donated it as the symbol of Canadian hockey supremacy. Apparently the Stanley Cup is like integrity. It must be earned. In future years, if the Rang- ers are to win the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1940, they must earn it in an era sure to be dominated by the Montreal Canadiens. If the Canadiens defeat the Black Hawks in the best-of- seven playoff final that began Sunday in Montreal, they will have won the Stanley Cup for the fourth time in six years, for the sixth time in nine years, for the llth time in 17 years. That tradition is equal- led by their construction for the future by Sam Pollock, their general rj anager. Through his shrewd trades, the Canadiens have stock- piled seven of the first 20 selections in next month's draft of amateur players. "That's where you get your blue chip players." says Emile Francis, the Rangers' intense general manager- coach. "Especially if you've got a draft choice in the top five." Since the Rangers bold the 14th choice in the first round, Francis will be trying to im- their position with a trade. But then he's always trying to make a trade, if not for a draft choice, then for a player he has coveted. For five years, he coveted Bruce MacGregor, an industrious right wing then with the De- troit Red Wings when Sid Abel was their general man- ager. Abel kept refusing to trade MacGregor, but one day in 1971 Francis phoned him. "I can't talk Abel said. "What's Francis asked. "I'm leaving to go to a press conference.'' "What's it Francis asked. "I'm Abel dis- closed. Moments later. Francis phoned Abel's successor, Ned Harkness, and obtained Mac- Gregor in a five-player deal. Not that he's infallible. He has dealt away seveial pios- pects who bloomed with other teams, such as Sjl Apps with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Jack Eggers with the St. Louis Blues, Curt Bennett v.ith the Atlanta Flames and Julia Widing with the Los Angeles Kings. But in his Ranger re- gime, he has created and .Tiainta'jied a contender. In the last seven seasons, the Ringers are the only N.H.L. team to have qualified for the playoffs each year. Such con- sistent success shouldn't be minimized by a coach's fail- ure to win the championship. In pro football, Don Shula needed 10 years to win it all. In the post mortems on the Rangers' elimination, two ele- ments were overlooked, one significant, the other perhaps coincidental. As a team that accumulated more points than the Black Hawks during the regular sea- son, the Rangers deserved the home-ice advantage in the first two games, but the Black Hawks had it because their first-place finish in the west division was higher than the Rangers' finish. The other factor is that the first three games of the Ranger Black Hawk series were officiated by relatively inexperienced referees. Their use is under- standable in the opening round, when four series are going on. But it's inexcusable in the serai-final round. If all but four teams have been eli- minated by then, all but four referees should have been eliminated too. "We did says Scotty Moi rjson, the N.H.L.'s referee-in-chief, "in order to give the referees ex- perience in the playoffs." Morrison's argument recalls the time a coach in the Red Wings' farm system was ashed by Jack Adams, then the Detroit general manager, why he had lesser players on the" ice when his team lost on a last-minute goal. "It was their turn to on the ice Oe coach explained. "That's when jou use your best.'1 Adams said. "You're fired." The same theory should apply to the referees in the Stanley Cup playoffs. If the Stanley Cup can't be bought, it shoaldn t be influenced by inexperienced and inconsis- tent referees. 'They'll be more dangerous tonight' ANDY CAPP Black Hawks had a bad game MONTREAL (CP) Don't try to sell Montreal Canadiens short on Chicago Black Hawks. The Cansdiens don't think their win in the first of the Stanley Cup final here Sunday wasn't indicative of the play. Canadiens' defenceman Serge Savard said Monday the Mon- trealers are looking for a much different game tonight when the best-of-seven series resumes at 6.05 p.m. MDT. "Most of the guys don't think we won the game that the angular defenceman said. "Chicago just had a bad night. "They did pretty well for 50 minutes. You Can bet they'll be more dangerous tonight." He noted that of the 10 games Montreal lost all Na- tional Hockey League record- Chicago administered three of those setbacks in five meetings between the two clubs. GOT BREAKS "We just got the breaks at the right time." Savard said. "V.'e scored on ths power play to go ahead. Then Pete (Mallow lich) scored while we were shorthanded. "As soon as we got that two- goal lead you could see they t dn't hold much hope. But it could just as easily have been 4-4. Then it might have been a different game." Savard admitted, he wasn't all that surprised that Montreal had taken early com- mand of the series despite two less-thar.-artis4- c series against Buffalo Sabres and Philadelphia Flyers. "After all, we know that Chi- cago is a good team. And that, if nothing, is a good reason for being The Canadiens are prepared mentally for the showdown, but they were hard-hit physically in the early moments of Sunday's gams when veteran defenceman Jacques Lapeniere emerged from a collision behind the Chi- cago net wjlh a broken nose. The tall, rangy blueliner bad the broken nose operated on Sunday night and coach Scotty Bowman said it probably would be next Sunday before he could return. MURDOCH FILLS IX In the meanitme, Bowman has an experienced rookie, Bob Murdoch, ready to go. Murdoch filled in for Laperriere lor most of the Philadelphia semi-final and was one of the Canadiens' steadiest pr. formers in an oth- erwise dismal series. And hockey watchers can look for a matchup again between Montreal's Claude Larose and heavy-shooting Dennis Hull of Chicago. Hull, left winger on the Hawks' high-scoring line with Pit Martin and Jim Pappin, al- most single-handedly disposed of New York Rangers in the semi-finals. The 30-year-old bullet-shooter connected for five of his six playoff goals going into the fi- nals against New York. He was also instrumental m setting up the play Sunday in which Mar- tin scored 35 seconds into the game. Then Bowman began his fa- mous line-juggBng acts, assign- ing Claude Larose to shadow Hull while going with four lines. The veteran right winger did such a thorough job, he had the usually-placid Hull gesturing threats of retaliation. "He probably doesn't like my Larose said. I don't play dirty. And he's a good player who doesn't take clicap shots Larase was ono rarMdien felt the Hawks were still a threat when Montreal held a 5-? lead but "they opened up and we scored a few goals." "But that line with Hull is j really a super-good he added. "They can really pass the puck and they're pretty quick guys, too. you know. The Canadiens held a full- scale shooting workout at the Forum Monday while the Hawks continued to take a low- key approach to the series by holding an optional skating ses- sion as coach Billy Reay rested many of his veterans. Or.e who would have pre- ferred practicing was Stan Mi- ikita, the middle finger of his I right hand doubled in size by j bandages and swelling. The finger was slashed to the Itendon when Mikita was [crashed to the boards by Mon- treal's Jim Roberts late in the game. Fieay described the in- jury as possibly serious enough to keep Mikita out of tonight's lineup. "We might to cut ssme of the stitches." Reay said. "But it's getting physiotherapy and whirlpool v.-e'll just have to wait until to- 1 night to see if he plays." Must think defence Jets to change style "They've played much better against us this year. We just had some luck." Aside from some bumps and WINNIPEG Winnipeg Jets will have to stop gambling and tighten up defensively for the rest of their best-of-seven World Hockey Association finals with New England Whalers. With the second and third games in Winnipeg Wednesday and Thursday, playing coach Bobby Hull of Winnipeg will be puling the emphasis on funda- mental, defensive hockey with a watchful eye to "the breaks." Commenting on'the Whalers' 7-2 win Sunday in the series opener at Boston, Hull said: "It was like Chicago tiding to skate with Montreal. They just can't do it and win.

Hull refused to knock Joe Da- ley who had a rough night Sun- day in the Winnipeg nets.

Both were injured in New England's semi-final ser- ies with Cleveland Crusaders, j Fourth and fifth games in the series will be in Boston. The sixth belongs to the Jets but Winnipeg Arena is housing a circus all next week and there were reports the game might be played in Toronto.
