Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta II LETHBRIDQE HERALD November 1973 and lots of it Reasons for jump to World Hockey they is lovelier the second time around. Certainly those former National Hockey League players who've divorced the NHL appear madly in love with the World Hockey Association and their new hockey marriage. reasons differ. Gordie who spent his en- tire life in NHL became disenchanted with the at- mosphere at Detroit's Olympia Stadium when his Bill Gad- was fired as Red Wings' coach and replaced by Ned Harkness. His disappointment at Olympia grew from there. through that last said couldn't have cared less whether I played or As most of the world knows by Gordie returned to the ice wars with the WHA Aeros for several reasons. The at- mosphere was cleaner in Houston more he now would have a chance to skate alongside his gifted Marty and Mark Howe. Why did some of the other skaters leave the Here are my personal Harry Ho New York Golden He knew he had two more big league years of defense left in and the Kings didn't. Harry realized he was one-two among the top defenders on the 1972-73 Los Angeles club. he wanted to come home to his favorite hockey Madison Square Gardens where he broke in early in the Fifties. Marc Los Angeles Sharks Seventh-leading scorer on the Stanley Cup champion Montreal Canadiens last Marc has experienced all the thrills the NHL has had to offer. The Spartan atmosphere of a Sam Pollock-Scotty Bowman regime didn't quite agree with his upbeat nor the fact that he was never given the responsibility he believed he rightfully deserved at the forum. He'll be the leader in LA. Mike MUUMMU Fighting SalaU Mike was mis- understood and misued by Punch Imlach in Toronto and under- valued and misinterpreted by Bep Guidolin in Boston. That was a bit much for one of the brightest young men to skate in the shadows of Bobby Orr and Phil Esposito. Who needed that when the the prestige and the chance for leadership are so much better in St. Carl Toroato Twos The defenseman who made Al Eagleson what he is Brewer was so disgusted with the NHL operation in St. Louis not the that he took the whole 1972-73 off as a savoring the WHA style. He liked what he saw and fancied the chance to be back home again in Toronto where he originally broke in to pro hockey with the Leafs. The parlay was too good to refuse. Quebec Nordlqoei The man who gained the Purple Heart guarding Bobby Hull in the 1971 Stanley Cup finals was treated like a Punchinello in hardly conso- nant with his record as a dynamic leaders in junior hockey. The Nordiques have given him the chance to be the prideful skater he once was. Dale Quebec Nordiques When you're a Montreal Canadiens defenseman and you yearn to be a first- stringer but people such as Jacques Guy Serge Savard and Jim Roberts are ahead of not to mention Pierre life becomes frustrating. And since you like the Province of there's only one thing to do. Dale did it. He went to the Nordiques. Pat Chicago Cougars For a man who gave 248 a few broken limbs and gave an awful lot of energy to the Chicago Black this master defenseman was rightful- ly perturbed when the Hawks removed the captain's from his jersey and gave him assorted other hard times here and there. He didn't want to leave the Windy City thanks to the WHA's he didn't have not at the price the Cougars were willing to pay. Ralph Chicago CMgan Among the more ab- surd moves made by Black Hawks' coach Billy Reay during the 1973 playoffs was to appoint a from among his players after a game to talk with the press. Reay made the mistake of trying the act with the sensitive Ralph Backstrom once and it was the straw that sent the fleet center heading for the gold mine in Cougarville. Al New England Whalers-It appears that as long as the duet of Ned Harkness and Jim Bishop warble the tunes at Detroit's it would be preferable for an am- Cuo-hungry skater to play elsewhere. Al Karlander falls directly into that category. Jim Winnipeg Same as Al except that his problem was skating for the Vancouver Canucks which was as mixed up an operation as the Red Wings at their worst. Rick Minnesota Fighting Saints In he was skating for Charles Finley. Need we say Serge Quebec Nordiquei. there's Bishop and in Los Jack Kent Cooke.
