Tueidoy, Oclobtr 19, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Everybody is too busy trying to hit opposition Pilous not necessarily impressed by junior hockey change BRANDON, Man. (CP) Junior hockey has undergone a transformation during t h e last 10 years and Eudy Pilous says the change does not nec- essarily mean an improvement in the game. Pilous, back coaching in ju- nior ranks after a 10-year jour ney through various profession- al and minor pro hockey cities in the United States, said "the whole construction of hockey has changed to the point of more emphasis on skating and shooting rather than play-mak- ing." "I haven't seen much of West- ern Canada, but it appears everyone is so busy trying to hit somebody they forget the finesse of the game." Pilous has taken over the role of coach-manager of Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Canada Hockey League. After several exhibition games he said he has not "been impress- ed with the WCHL, not to the point where I'd want to buy a season ticket but maybe I'll have to adjust myself to it." The 56-year-old former Stan- ley Cup coach, speaking be- tween periods of an exhibition game that featured 44 penal- ties and numerous fights, said the art of the game is disap- pearing in the junior leagues. "They used to move the puck around pretty well in junior hockey and the officiating was stern. Now I notice when the whistle blows nobody pays attention they still charge into players." Pilous said the increasing roughness in junior hockey is Dawson uses sore arm effectively KANSAS CITY (AP) Sore- armed Len Dawson zeroed in on Otis Taylor in a spectacular aerial display as Kansas City Chiefs erased a 9-0 deficit with four second-quarter touchdowns for a 38-16 victory over Pitts- burgh Steelers in an American Football Conference game Mon- day night. Dawson hurled payoff strikes of five and 27 yards to Taylor and five yards to rookie Elmo Wright. Ed Podolak scored the fourth touchdown on a one-yard run and Emmitt Thomas added a TD in the last moments on a 32-yard pass interception run. The defeat made Pittsburgh's record 2-3 and left the Steelers two games behind Cleveland Browns, 4-1, in the AFC Central Division. not due to the type of play In; ior level is bright, especially eluded a one-year stay In Eng- the National Hockey League, but more the fault of officiating. "It could be stopped. As soon as the whistle blows if a player charges give him a penalty." Despite the changing style of play and sagging attendance that has forced some operators the U.S. Pilous has gone the full cir- cle in to the area where he began his long career in the game. A Winni- peg minor leaguer, he played junior in Portage la Prairie, about 80 miles from Brandon, to move their franchises in re-1 before embarking on his travels cent seasons, Pilous says the future of the game at the jun- that took him to cities through land. But it was Ms junior experi- ence in St. Catharines, Ont., that launched Pilous into a coaching career in the NHL. He organized junior hockey in the city in 1943, left three years later, but returned in 1950 to begin building a junior club that was to capture two Canadian Canada and the U.S. and in-1 championships and develop NHL stars such as Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita and Pierre Pilote. Pilous joined the Chicago Black Hawks in 1958 and in three seasons guided Chicago to its first, and only, Stanley Cup victory since 1937-38, It was the pinnacle of his career and the final year of "yeoman duty" as owner manager of St. Catharines and coach of Chi- cago. The dual roles forced him to commute between the cities, often daily, but it paid off to the Memorial Cup in 1960 and the Stanley Cup the following spring. Pilous and the Hawks parted company in 1963 and after a brief stop In Oakland in 1967 "I was one of the first man- agers to the expansion, and, uniquely it seems, probably the first to be let go" Pilous spent three years in the Tor- onto system and one year as an independent operator of a mi- nor-pro club in Denver. Why the return to junior hockey? "It's a pretty good idea after having a full gamut of 25 years of eastern and major league hockey and minor league pro. "I tried to get into the On- tario Hockey Association but the franchises were pretty well used up so when 1 got the chance to help build up a run- down business I thought it was an excellent opportunity and a challenge." With an opportunity to pur- chase shares in the Brandon club, Pilous welcomes the chal- lenge of bringing team out of the cellar of the WCHL east- ern division. Ranger star tops scorers Fast start for Gilbert MONTREAL (CP) Eight the first time in nine seasons a winger Rod Gilbert of New York Rangers, off to the fastest start of his 10-season career, has picked up 11 points in his club's first five games to lead the National Hockey League scoring race today.

The Associated Press' Manager I The Pirates will be looking for of the Year in the American j improvement at shortstop and I probably in some areas of pitch- PITTSBURGH (AP) Will Danny Murtaugh return as manager of the world champion Pittsburgh Pirates next year? "I'll decide in the next month or so if I'll the 54- year-old manager had said dur- ing the World Series. Murtaugh, looking pale and tired after the final game, says a decision would be made only because of his health. He resigned four years after the Pirates won the world championship in I960 because of a heart ailment. But he has re- turned twice 1967, only for a year because of a second heart attack and last year when he led the Pirates to a division title. If Murtaugh should step down, his likely replacement would be Bill Virdon. Virdon, the Pirate batting coach and former center fielder for Pittsburgh, conducted the Pirate clubhouse meetings dur- ing the regular season. He also was interim manager when Murtaugh was hospital- ized, again for a heart problem. PLAYERS NOT SECURE General manager Joe L. Brown has said Murtaugh is his manager as long as he wants the job, but he is not as free with his endorsements of Pirate players. There are very few untoucha- bles on the Pirate club and Brown can be expected to trade for players he believes will League. Williams, 42, who in his first year as manager of the Athlet- ics guided them to a runaway 16-game margin in the AL West Division with a 101-60 record, received 107 votes in nationwide balloting by sports writers and sporlscasters. Bob Lemon of Kansas City Royals finished second with 66 votes, and Earl Weaver of Balti- more Orioles third with 59. ing. Gene Alley, who batted .227 during the regular season and started only one game in the World Series, is scheduled to undergo a knee operation soon and has indicated he may retire from baseball. Jack Hernandez, who played shortstop in Alley's place, did a fine job in the Series, but he batted only .206 and had 18 er- Lethbridge Fish and Game Assoc.

Center fielder AI Oliver, pla- looned during the season with Gene Clines, says he wants to be traded if he doesn't play every day. Relief pitcher Bob Veale, who has more victories and shutouts as a Pirate than any other pitcher on the staff, also may be on the market, although his 7.04 eamed-run average, despite a 6-0 record, may not be very attractive to other clubs.

Wilson stpeaks past Paterson In two Lethbridge Junior High School Soccer League games staged last night, Ham- ilton blanked Immanuel Chris- tian 2-0 while Wilson edged Pat- erson 2-1. Hamilton were led by D. F. Currie and Dave Aleb who tal- lied a goal apiece while Wilson scorers were Cliff and Keith Miyashiro. Greg Murray notched the lone Paterson marker which was about a minute away from 1-1 tie. was Bryan Hextall in 1941-42. The Art Ross Trophy, awarded annually to the NHL's top points finisher, was presented to the league to honor the scoring champion for the first time in 1947-48. Among the eight points Gil- bert picked up last week in three games were his 300th reg- ular-season assist and 500th point. Gilbert currently holds a three-point lead over defending champion Phil Esposito of Bos- ton Bruins. LINEMATES THIRD Tied for third place are Gil- bert's linemates, left winger Vic Hadfield and centre Jean Ra- telle, along with rookie Bobby Sheehan of California Golden Seals. All three players have seven points, and Sheehan and team- mate Norm Ferguson each scored three goals in one game last week. New York, which won the Ve- zina Trophy last season when netminders Ed Giacomin and Gilles Villemure wound up with the best goals-against average for the first time in 31 Banger seasons, is the highest scoring team so far this season with 23 goals. Half of the New York have been scored by the Git bert, Hadfield and Ratelle line, which has 25 points. Yvan Cournoyer of Montreal Canadiens and Sheehan share the lead in goals with five each. They are small men by NHL standards, both measuring five feet, seven inches. Tony Esposito of Chicago Black Hawks, Vezina Trophy winner two seasons ago, is all alone in the goalkeeping depart- ment. He has allowed only five goals, in the same number of fame's and has recorded a pair of shutouts in the process for a 1.00 goals-against average. Only one game was scheduled for tonight when Vancouver Canucks travelled to St. Louis for a game against the Blues.
