Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, May 15, SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan Six goals In first period sinks Medicine Hat Tigers' roar was less than a meow T ETHBRIDCrE became just an ordinan city Thursday. We now only have one coach in the National Hockey League. The word came out of Van- couver Thursday that Vic Stasiuk's contract as coach of the National League's Can- ucks would not be renewed. Rumors had been circulat- ing for some time that Sta- siuk's days were numbered. But we all know that rumors are as often as not fiction, rather than fact. However, it became fact Thursday less than two weeks before his 44th birthday. haven't had a chance to talk with Vic as yet. He ap- parently is headed home to consider his future. He has been offered a job in the Ca- nuck organization, but the treatment he received may alter his thoughts about a re- turn to the coast. Vic, I'm sure, would have to agree, that the Canucks' management has every right to hire or fire a coach or general manager. But it was the manner in which they did it that left an odor. Jirn Taylor, of the couver Sun describes the Ca- nuck situation as a bad joke growing gamier, with no lief in sight. The Canucks, says Taylor, can't find what they are miss- ing in the NHL drafts. You can't buy class. A season that saw the Ca- nucks, under Stasiuk. win only 22 games losing 47 and tying nine, is not the only problem have. In fact, it may be one of the smaller ones facing them. The Canucks, continues Taylor, have lost respectabil- ity. In their handling of the Victor Stasiuk-Hal Laycoe sit- Stasiuk is gone. His crime is that he's an old school coach, unable to handle the spoiled brats the new school Is producing. He took away Dale Tal- lon's assistant captain and it was a joke. It was an honest move by a dead hon- est guy writes Taylor. He couldn't fine him, couldn't trade him and a suspension have lasted as long as it took for one phone call to Al' Eagleson. So he tried to atiack Tallon's pride. There no noticeable success, but in Stasiuk's spot, what else would you have done? What would you have done, given the Players' Associa- tion and an empty room at top, the night in Detroit Stasiuk walked into the lounge of the hotel where the Canucks were staying, and found a dozen of them having Van- uation, they have branded themselves bush. The sad part of it all is that they will get away with it because their only criterion is profit and there won't be an unsold seat in Pacific Coliseum next year. Coley Hall, who stated earl- ier this week Stasiuk had to go, is perfectly entitled to hire or fire whom he chooses. There is no campaign to keep Stasiuk or Laycoe. But, if you don't want someone, fire him. You don't say you have to keep him because it's too dif- ficult to find a replacement. Public hangings were out- lawed a long time ago. a drink? What would your answer have been, when you called them in on it and one of them stood up and said, "There's one of you and 72 of us. What are you going to do about Stasiuk has be'sn down the expansion team's coach road before. He was in Philadel- phia with the Flyers and then spent a year with the Cali- fornia Golden Seals. When he was fired by the Flyers he told me there were plenty of jobs in hockey. Maybe he will take one, maybe he won't. He has his farm to look after, he had some good earn- ing years. Maybe he'li just stay home. After all, he can still get all the ins'de info from his friend and Leth- b r i d g e's remaining NHL coach. Earl Ingarfield.

OUINELLA: S24 00 MONTREAL hockey season ended abruptly Friday night for Medicine Hat Tigers, the so-called Cinderella team of the Western Canada Hockey League. The Tigers dropped a 7-3 ver- dict to Quebec Remparts, enabl- ing the Quebec Major Junior A Hockey League champions to advance 10 tonight's sudden- death final game against To- ronto Marlboros. Game time is :00 p.m. MDT and it will be car- ried on the CTV network. Guy Chouinard, Andre Savard and Richard Nantais scored two goals each for Quebec and Jean Landry added the other for the Remiparts, who skated to a 6-1 lead in the first period. Ed Johnstone scored twice for Medicine Hal while Tom Lysiak scored the other. Only three years ago, the Ti- gers joined the WCHL as an ex- pansion team and they finished at the bottom of the league. Before their first season started, the Tigers acquired two players who helped to propel them into the Memorial Cup round-robin. Medicine Hat had drafted Henry Van Drunen from Ed- monton Oil Kings and John Sen- kpiel from Calgary Centennials in the expansion draft. The Oil Kings and the Centennials wanted their players back and the Tigers agreed to trade. From Edmonton, they got Ly- siak, then a 17-year-old from High Prairie. Alta. Calgary gave them Lanny McDonald, who was playing for Lethbridge Sugar Kings of the Alberta Junior League at the time. Lvsiak, a centre, won the WCHL scoring crown for the second consecutive year in 73 with 154 points on 58 goals and 96 assists while McDonald had 62 goals and 77 assists and finished third in the scoring. In the WCHL playoffs. Lysiak had 40 points. McDonald 39 as the Tigers knocked off Calgary, Edmonton and Saskatoon Blades to win a Memorial Cup berth. "It was a good said Lysiak, shortly after his club's defeat "It would have been nice though if we could have taken the cup home. "Quebec's got a good skating team. I think they are a bit fast- er than Toronto. The penalties at the start hurt us and we couldn't really get going. The referee was calling almost ev- erything. "And we just weren't up for the game.'' Referee Jim Lever apparently had his mind set on keeping things under control. In the first period he called 15 minor penal- ties, including four to the Tigers in the first two minutes and 40 BEAT THE HEAT AND THE PRICES WITH A YORK WINDOW UNIT AIR CONDITIONER Sizes available from if B 7.U. and up 01 UP NEUKO SHEET METAL LTD. 1811 A 2nd AVE.

"That really put us said Tigers' coach Jack Shupe. "The kids start thinking they're going to be called for every little thing they start backing away from the corners and lose some of their aggressiveness." Shupe noted that his club may have "gone into the gainfe a little over-confident" and Que- bec was able to get the Tigers early. "The thing with us is, we weren't making the big play in their end. They were on top of us all the time." Meanwhile, Quebec coach Or- val Tessier, who coached Corn- wall Royals to the Memorial Cup championship last season in Ottawa couldn't contain his satisfaction with the win. "We played a solid hockey game. They wanted to hit but we weren't intimidated one bit. "It's funny. I was saving to a guy in the hotel lobby Thursday that we were capable of break- ing out and scoring six or seven goals in a period. He just walked away shaking Ms head. Well, we did it. "All week long people were whispering and looking at us sideways. They said Quebec was a good team in the Quebec league but that we didn't belong here. "We showed again this year that our league belongs in the Memorial Cup. I'm proud for the province and for the Quebec league. I'll tell you, it's been a long time since a Quebec team has been out of the finals." For the past two seasons, teams representing the 'Quebec Major Junior A Hockey League have won the Memorial Quebec in 1971 and Cornwall last year. In 1969 and 1970, Montreal Junior Canadians, then a mem- ber of the Ontario Hockey Asso- ciation Junior were the national junior champions.
