Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, November 8, 1974 DISNEYLAND and CALIFORNIA Depart January 16, 1975 February 15, 1075 Priced at only per person double occupancy ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 Stan Fischler Shero 's dream team 'Many hockey critics believe that the 1974 Philadelphia Flyers come as close to fulfilling the requirements of A Dream Team as possible under real-life conditions They finished first in the National Hockey League's west division They won The Stanley Cup They have a superstar in goal (Bernie Parent) and a superstar at center (Bobby Clarke) They neatly melt artistry with fistic fury and, perhaps most important, they have a splendid thinking coach in Fred Shero He s a displaced Wmmpegger who broke into pro hockey at age 16 and has since developed ice theories far beyond the limited scope of his mediocre coaching colleagues When most coaches talk, you're better off listening to Howdy Doody for all the knowledge you'll get out of them, hockey or otherwise But when Shero talks, it pays to listen and listen hard because he always makes sense and inevitably is instructive That's why it was fascinating to learn that Fred doesn't con- sider his 1974 world champions a "Dream Team Oh, sure, there are a couple of gems on the Flyers, like Parent, Clarke and Rick MacLeish but the Shero Dream Team is much more comprehensive One of Shero's defensive sets in front of Dream goalie Parent would comprise Babe Pratt who played for the Rangers and Maple Leafs and Doug Harvey, a former Canadiens and Rangers ace "When Babe checked an said Shero, "it was like man against boy No contest As for Harvey "Doug's way of handling the puck was un- believable, just perfect control He never lost his cool, no matter what the pressure Harvey did things at his own seemingly easy speed, yet few could touch him The other pair includes Bobby Orr does it all and Red Kelly The Kelly in question is the one who played defense so expertly for the Detroit Red Wings before Punch Imlach converted him to center as a Leaf in Red's latter NHL years Up front Shero recognized the too-often-overlooked Chicago Toronto Rangers center, Max Bentley, a wrist-shooting pivot who could do things with skate and puck that Phil Esposito couldn t execute in his wildest dreams said Shero, "was a wonderful, smooth skater For a contemporary center, Shero is undecided between Esoosito and his own Rick MacLeish, a youngster whom Fred described as having "enormous natural talent" combined with his bulldozer physique Shero asserted, "is faster than Esposito and just about as strong Right wing would be a draw between the greatest all-round modern Gordie Howe, and the most spectacular scorer, Maurice "Rocket" Richard That Richard was all but said Shero "And I speak from experience When I played defense he went around my side more than a few times Left wing belongs to Bobby Hull because as Shero put 'no team is complete without him One name was omitted for last, the player Shero would choose above all the competition, if he was limited to selecting just one No, it wasn't Jean Beliveau or Frank Mahovhch "My first choice above all Shero insisted, "is Bobby Clarke because he does more things in a game than anyone else He can do it all play defense, check, score although he doesn't have the most finesse Shero had one postscript Any Dream team needs a solid, anti-hero utility player The perfect hustler "My man for that would be Gary Shero concluded "Gary never stops trying He gives our club a lift when it needs it That guy was as much a factor in our cham- pionship drive as the superstars'" Minor Hockey Louis Larnane closed the door Thursday night on the Raiders as his Blades took a 5- 0 triumph in Bantam B minor hockev action NOW OPEN Boys' and Girls' SKATE EXCHANGE Come Down and Swap Your Old Skates On Another Used Pair.
