Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Fridav. November 56, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 t'V Mt Enssde Hockey of tlic impenetrable mysteries of hockey is the effect dissension has on a playur and liis team. Exhibit A, of course, was Urn despair-riddled Mcnlrca! Cai'.adieiis who won the Stanley Cup last Spring, while carping at coach Al Mac- Njil. Exhibit B is liocl Gilbert, the New York right wing. Of all the Rangers, Gilbert was the most unhappy with his 1071-72 contract, particularly after his first 30-goal season over last season. One might have expected the Montreal native to sit in the corner and sulk. Instead, he is off to his most productive campaign ever, and shows no signs of flagging. Based on NHL logic, a 50-goal year for Gilbert this year could result in a cut in salary and a GO-goal year in 1972-73. The only fader that prevented a Derek Sanderso.n-to California Golden Seals deal recently was Oakland boss Char- lie Finley's concern about an early retirement for 'Hie Turk. Defonceman Carol Vadnais still remains thc-mosl-sought- after Seal. "Emile Francis has been chasing him for said Seals vice Munson Campbell, "and he's still after Mm." It wouldn't surprise anyone if the Montreal Canadiens were after Bobby Shceban whom they sold to California last spring. The U.S. -born centre had a bum rap in Montreal; he re- putedly was a late-night swinger. A Seals' executive kept an Argus eye on Sheehan after he joined the Oakland sextet and was pleasantly surprised by his attitude, compared to what the executive had been led to believe. "Somebody tagged him said the Seals official. "Sheehan is a dedicated kid who wants to be an All-Star." Maurice Richard has told owners of the New York World Hockey Association team that he appreciates Iheir ccaching offer but he'd rather remain in Montreal with his family and fishing supply business. "We respect the said Neil Shayne, president of the New York WIIA sextet, "and hope to have him work for us out of Montreal as a talent scout and good-will ambas- sador." A concrete scouting offer is on the way to the Rocket; and another one is headed for Harry Sinden, the man who brought the Bruins a Stanley Cup in 1970. Sinden is New York's choice, after The Rocket, to coach its new WHA team. NHL President Clarence Campbell is not perfection per- sonified but hs does have mere insight than most of his owners. The best case in point is Campbell's frequent warn- ings to owners that, under no circumslances. should expan- sion teams be permitted to trade their draft choices. But the owners wouldn't listen to Clarence and that explains the plight of teams such as Jack Kent Cooke's dismal Los An- geles Kings. If there was any doubt about hockey's enormous growth consider this; the second annual world professional table hock- ey tournament will he held at the George Washington Hotel in New York City on Dec. 4th. Teams from Montreal, Toronto, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City and Philadelphia, among others are entered. A trophy and cash prize goes to the win- ning team.

Argos lack experience, 16 first-year men pla VANCOUVER (CP) The one theme that coach Leo Ca- bin keeps coming back to in assessing Toronto Argonauts' 1971 football season is their succes in the face of adversity. The adversity Cahill has faced included trying to mould a team out of a collection of men, half of whom are first- year personnel with the Argos, and keeping then: going de- spite i.jmerais injuries.
