Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD -Wednesday, October 16, 1974 President Ford, Brad Park have lot in common New Ranger captain has tough job on his hands By STAN FISCHLER, Herald Hockey Columnist On August 9, 1974 Richard Nixon was replaced by Gerald Ford as captain of the U.S. of A. At the same time on the same day the New York Rangers sent telegrams to ambassadors in the hockey world that they, too, were making a big change in boss men. Brad Park, a guy who has been called "Huckleberry Finn on replaced Vic Hadfield as captain of the Broadway Blueshirts. To frustrated Rangers' fans, the transfer of power had the same cleansing effect as the crowning of Gerald Ford. Like Park, Hadfield has been called a lot of things but, lately, few of them have been nice. When he walked out on Team Canada in 1972, Vic was called a quitter. In his last days with New York he was called a fat-cat. These were among the more pleasant descriptions. Hadfields's performance as leader of the Rangers was something less than inspirational. During the final minutes of the final game of the New York Philadelphia Stanley Cup semi-final last spring an NBC-TV camera caught Hadfield smiling in the penalty box as his exhausted team- mates were about to be wiped out of the playoffs. When Madison Square Garden brass got wind of Hadfield's Academy Award effort, they requested the TV film, replayed the final moments, and left the screening room in a suitable state of fury. Within moments the word was out Hadfield must go! And he to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Which, of course, is Pittsburgh's problem, not yours. As for Park, he suddendly faced the same brand of overwhelming problems in his icy sphere as Gerald Ford en- countered the day he walked into the White House. Brad's Rangers had been disgraced. One of his team-mates, Steve Vickers actually had labelled the team a bunch of "chokers." They have not won The Stanley Cup since 1940 and they appeared desperate when they signed Derek Sanderson, a man whom Park, himself, had personally withered in his autobiography, "Play The Man." Somehow it felt as though Richard Nixon had been working all these years for the. Rangers. i Thus, the change from Hadfield to Park was, as much a tonic to Ranger-followers as Ford's arrival at the White House was to the American electorate. Only 26 years old, Brad has that "I cannot tell a lie" look about him and a vitality that comes partly from youth, partly from confidence and partly from genes. It all was evident at a recent gathering with the press. He didn't fib about his past volleys at Sanderson. "Any change that'll help my said Park, "is a change that I like. I admit Derek never was one of my favorite people. But he's a fighter and a good hockey player. I welcome him." For the past few years the Rangers have been accused of giving less than 100 per cent. It has been said that they've made so much money on their regular season contracts that they didn't need the playoff money. "I don't give a damn about the countered Park. "I just want to win The Stanley Cup." That's not exactly the most original line in the world, but give Park credit, he put his money where his mouth is. He promised he'd deliver the playoff bonus to charity if the Rangers won the 1974 Cup. When they failed, he turned over a contribution nonetheless. "I gave some to the Big he said, "and some to the North Shore Hospital on Long Island that saved my son, Robby, who was very sick last spring." Such gestures have been a tonic to the Rangers; a much- maligned club heavily in need of a boost. said team- mate Ed Giacomin, "really went out on a limb. He erased the dollar signs on us." But Park will have to do more than that, and he knows it. Despite their payroll, the Rangers have done nothing to convince fans they're worth that kind of dough. As the Rangers' highest salaried player at an estimated a season, Park's All-Star.credentials are not enough to satisfy a fan paying a ticket. "We've been Park allowed, "and some of the criticism has hurt. But what hurts more is the fact that we don't have The Stanley Cup on display in New York." Perhaps if Gerald Ford can straighten out the United States, Brad Park can help win a Stanley Cup for the Rangers. It's a long shot, to be sure. But, then again, who would have figured a year ago that Ford would be president or Park, at 26, would be captain of the Rangers.
