Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Octobtr 2, 1974 Would you believe Clarence Campbell Conference? NHL will sport new look AINDY CAPP NEW YORK (CP) The National Hockey League in the forthcoming season will have an entirely new look in name as well as t'act. Admittedly, it may seem a little awkward at first, but Don Ruck, vice-president of the NHL, said Tuesday he feels sure the fans will relate to famous names in hockey as the NHL is doing. Instead of using geographical designations such as East and West for naming of conferences and common prac- tice in pro NHL will use the names of trophies and members of hockey's Hall of Fame to identify its new 18- team, two-conference, four- division setup. The regular season starts Oct. 9. NHL president Clarence Campbell said the board of governors approved a com- mittee's recommendation to use two famous trophies to identify the conferences and four great names in hockey history to identify the divisions. In the process, the NHL in- creased the regular and playoff money by almost to One two-division conference will be known as the Prince of Wales Conference and the other, also with two divisions, as the Clarence Campbell Conference. Ruck said that under the four-division setup it was im- possible to come up with true geographic designations. "We worked harder on this than anything he said. The divisions will be named after four Hall of Fame build- ers in the F. Adams, James Norris Sr., Conn Smythe and Lester Patrick. The NHL broke down the lineups this way: Clarence Campbell Conference Lester Patrick Division: At- lanta Flames, New York Islanders, New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers. Conn Smythe Division: Chi- cago Black Hawks, Kansas City Scouts, Minnesota North Stars, St. Louis Blues and Vancouver Canucks. Prince of Wales Conference James Norris Division: De- troit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings, Montreal Canadiens, Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals. Charles F. Adams Division: Boston Bruins, Buffalo Sabres, California Golden Seals and Toronto Maple Leafs. Washington and Kansas City are new expansion franchises. Last season, there were two and 16 teams.

The Capitals rallied from a 3-0 deficit and forced the Stanley Cup defending cham- pions to hang on to win. In other NHL exhibition games, Boston Bruins defeated Chicago Black Hawks 4-3 and New York Islanders beat Minnesota North Stars 64. In World Hockey Associa- tion exhibitions, New England Whalers'edged Quebec Nordi- ques 7-6 and San Diego Mariners made their debut with a 3-0 victory over Van- couver Blazers. Prince of Wales Trophy and the West won the Clarence Campbell Bowl. But with four divisions, the NHL was faced with the choice of either dropping the two trophies or creating two new ones. Ruck said .the governors did not want to keep adding trophies and cheapen the tradition of the league. So they agreed to the two-conference system, keeping the prestige of two highly-regarded trophies and backing up the awards with a bit more money. "For a the NHL went ahead and did something I think is novel and will catch on with the Ruck said. "Why should the NHL follow other sports he asked. Campbell, in a brief state- ment, said: "We believe that great trophies have been more closely associated with the National Hockey League than any other sport. The names and the trophies are part of the league's traditions and 57- year history." In the new playoff struc- ture, the teams will compete for their own divisional cham- pionship and their positions in the playoffs. In addition, the teams will compete for their conference championships. The club with the most points in each conference at the end of the season will be the conference winner. A team could win both divi- sion and conference titles with each player getting a total of compared with for each player on the winning divisional teams last season. The conference cham- pionship awards will total and the divisional championships divid- ed as follows: Each member of the team winning the conference title will receive (21 player Divisional champions will receive a player, a player for second place and a player for third.

IF IT'S NICE East Rough Riders Bowling scores iftAvr BAUJI O94- C5 Pirhflrri may be for sale OTTAWA (CP) Ottawa Rough Riders, a disappoint- ment on the playing field, are almost a disaster at the ticket office and the "for sale" sign may soon go up. Owner David Loeb said in an interview that the club may lose as much as this Eastern Football Conference season. "I'll finish out the season and after that I'll go over the said Mr. Loeb Mon- day night. "If the figures are as bad as I think they'll be, the league can try to find a buyer." After winning the Grey Cup last season, Riders have a pre- carious grip on third place in the EFC, only two points ahead of Toronto Argonauts. A sputtering offence is their main trouble on the field. Riders drew well only for a game against Montreal Alouettes but on their first six games over-all they are down about in attendance. Loeb said many things have contributed to fans staying home. "There was the beginning of the World Football League and the loss of some of our he said. "Then there was the Marc Lalonde bill (which would have barred the WFL from Canada) which fans didn't like. "There was the players strike and I suppose fans get turned off over labor- management disputes in sport." If he was assured of average crowds of a game, Loeb said he would break even or lose a little. He would in that event be inclined to ride out "a few lean years." Riders need an increase in the number of seats between the goal lines to be able to seat but that.would mean the team would "get involved in a lease for the park." Andreachuk sustains broken wrist Lethbridge hockey product Randy Andreachuk, now with the Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey League, suffered a broken wrist in a practice session with the team Tuesday. Andreachuk is ex- pected to be sidelined from three to four weeks. He was the first round draft choice of the Jets in the junior -draft this past spring and has signed a multi year contract with the Jets. He was also drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL. The Flyers have since traded his rights to the St. Louis Blues of the same league.
