MAN IN YOUR LIFE SPORT JACKETS BUY-RITE MEN'S WEAR 311 Mh St. 1. MMM Fischler rates Howe the best ever Defining what nukes a geminely freathoctey player is as easy as visiting the Hockey HaU of Fame in Toronto. Just study the backgrounds of aces such as Maurice Howie Ted Lindsay and Gordie to name a and you have the qualifications for shinny supremacy. To the list we would add the names of such contemporary gems as Bobby Phil Esposito and Bobby but then the Great List suddenly becomes too long and almost without'meaning. I think it's time we narrowed the ever-widening category of supermen and selected the dandiest dozen the 12 greatest players .of all including those still in action this season. Here's my list and the reasons behind the 1. GORDIE HOWE He not only holds all the important National Hockey League scoring records but has been as durable -as a heavy as creative as Albert Einstein most has done what nobody else has played long enough so that he now actually can skate alongside his Mark and Marty. Gordie's the hands-down. 2. EDDIE SHORE Renowned as Edmonton Ex- Shore literally saved and then made the Boston Bruins' franchise in the late Twenties and starred until the start of fhe Forties. He was the toughest player who ever lived and could play defense both offensively and defensively equally well and at times considerably better than Bobby Orr does today. 3. RED KELLY He frequently was all All-Star defenseman for the Detroit Red Wings. after more than a decade starring in he went to Toronto where 'he' became a crackerjack center and the made a star out of moody Frank Mahovlich. Nobody in the game's history has displayed such total brilliance at both positions so long. 4 FRANK BOUCHER The most creative center who Boucher won the Lady Byng Trophy so many times Longhorns routed 12-2 CALGARY Jerry Bancks led Calgary Canucks to 'a 12-2 rout of Lethbridge Longhorns Tues- day scoring three goals in the Alberta Junior Hockey League game. Brian Dave Hale and Dean Magee each added a pair with singles coming from Mike Haworth and tommy' Snodgrass. The outshot 52- got singles from Brad Cox and Ron Weiland. The Canucks led 2-0 after the first then added six goals-in the second to lead 8-2. _ The Longhorns took three of five minor penalties arid the teams split two majors. The Longhorns also drew a mis- conduct. Longhorns were playing without the services of flashy centre Randy Joevenazzo and coach Stan Maxwell. Both sat out suspensions for verbal abuse of referee Jerry Gray in a game last Tuesday night in Lethbridge. who have now dropped nine striaght games since winning two of their first three hit the road again this weekend when they travel to Edmonton Saturday to meet the Mets and Sunday night in Drymheller for a game with the Falcons. Next home action for the club is next Tuesdayvwhen the Minor hockey After a scoreless first the Nationals rifled in three goals in each of the last two periods to whip the Royals 6-2 in a midget en- counter Tuesday night. Danny Kevin Bruce Tim Brent Bentham and Craig Murray tallied for the Nationals while Barry Sedgwick and Bryon Belsher replied for the Royals. In another midget the Northslars dropped the A.C.T.

Meanwhile David Macuira fired in four big goals and pac- ed the Nuggets to a 7-4 victory over the Blazers in a Bantam B match. Richard Brian Van Egmund and Jerry Setoguchi added singles in the win while Brent Lang tallied twice and Rob Wood and Bill Rae once each in a losing cause. In a Bantam A Trent Auch slapped in a pair of goals and led the Red Wings to a slim 3-2 decision over the Jets. Ricky Van Luyk chipped In with solo effort while Tom DeJager and Ted DeGroot that the NHL finally gave him the darn thing and struck a new trophy. responsible for all three all they've won New York Rangers' Stanley Cup play- ing on two teams and coaching the third. 5. MAURICE RICHARD In Richard's time the Montreal Canadians ww The Stnaly Cup eight times and The Rocket was usually the reason why He was the only man in modern times to score 50 goals in 50 to this ranks as the most galvanic goal-scorer and singularly exciting player ever to lace on a pair of big-league skates. 6. BOBBY HULL Rocket Richard put the NHL on the international hockey map when it was a six-team league but nobody glamorized the game and paved the way for today's grand and revolutionary expansion than Golden The NHL owners should pay him just for all the bullion he put into their pockets. Needless to he permanently altered the style of hockey by popularizing the slapshot. He also has done quite a bit of and personally put the World Hockey Association on the map. Were he a playmaker and defensive he'd have been atop this list. .V 7. HOWIE MORENZ fhe Maurice Richard-Bobby Hull of another Morenz of the Canadians was known as Babe Ruth of and for good reason. His flashing speed was precisely what enabled owners to sell big-league hockey as World's Fastest He was gallant and at the very root of the Canadiens' heritage. 8. BOBBY ORR To the Boston superman-boy IS the greatest of all players but he misses the top of this list for several He still has not fully stood the test of another year or two are needed to determine if his legs can carry His achievements have mostly been accomplish- ed during a period of expansion and dilution of talent as a he is not all thai good defensively. his achievements speak for particularly his scoring and ability to sell the game without putting too many phrases back to hack. 9. DOUG HARVEY As defensive defensemen he was the best after Eddie Shore and very likely the best modern blueliner of all time. His 10 elections as First All-Star confirm that fact. Superb as a playmaker Harvey made a policy of rare- ly getting caught in the enemy's end a la Orr and helped make the CanadMk of the Fifties one of the NHL's rare dynasties. 10. MAX BENTLEY Playing for the Chicago Black Hawks and then the Toronto Maple Bentley more than anyone combined the gifts of skating and playmaking to exquisite perfection. He starred and played on Stanley Cup-winners despite a frail physique and chronic hypocondria. 11. TED LINDSAY Smallish like Lindsay carried intimidation to its ultimate degree because of fighting frequently overshadowed his talents as a left wing on The Production Line witlj Gordie Howe and Sid Abel. He put the mustard into Jack Adam' first-rate Red Wing clubs from the late Forties through the Fifties. 12.
