Thuudoy, Odobtr 1972 THE ICIHMlDSl HIRAID Vificliler's Inside Hockey Coach Johnson says Bruins played 'a lousy game' rpJLERE ore lliosc who believe the number two on Brad -1 Park's uniform has a symbolic jwrmanoncc. Tliat is, Park will remain number two and will never1' be the best ctetcnccman in the National Hockey League, as long as Bobby On1 is around. The results were obvious in The All-Star Team balloting. Park, llic 2-i-ycar-old New York Hangers defcnceman, was named to the First Team right next to Orr, the Boston slrongboy. But Bobby outpointed him and also collected the Morris and Hart Trophies at a luncheon humorously retilled "The Orr Awards Ceremony." For a gifted, prideful, yet realistic, young man such aa Park, his position as chronic runner-up could have negative psychological repercussions. But Park has managed to handle his "Aris" role to Orr's "Hertz" in a reasonably healthy manner. "I see no reason to be upset because I'm rated second to says Park who is four months younger than Orr. "Bobby is not only Hie top riefcnceman in the game today, he is considered the best player ever to put on skates.- "What's wrong with being rated numlrer two to such a tuper-superslar? The fact that I am number two means that I'm considered belter than all the other (Mencemen today, and Ihere are some fine hockey players Park already has surpassed Orr in Ihe fascinating depart- ment of controversy. In his book, "Play The Brad has created a storm of arger as he indicted the Bruins for totalizing hockey and singled out Pliil Esposito, Ken Hodge, Wayne Cashman, and even the awesome Mister Orr, for cri- ticism. writes Park, "doesn't ]ike to get Lit, mid some- times he'll throw a cheap shot at one of our guys. A man of liis ability needn't revert to such stuff, but he does." The Park-Orr rivalry extends through Brad's family. One of the most vocal anli-Orr leaders is Brad's wife, Gerry, Winnipeg-torn former Air Canada stewardess. "You know what 1 get the most pleasure from, almost as much as when Brad says Gerry. "It's when OTT gels caughl up ice trying lo score and somebody on Ihc Rangers sleals Ihe puck and comes in on a breakaway. I just love that! Park and Orr came close to fighting with each other during .tire regular 1971-72 season. i Brad recalls. 'Trlon Sather and Johnny McKoiv zie got into a hassle. I was there and Orr WAS nearby. We glared at later' and each other. He said something like, 'I'l I said 'I'll be waiting' but nothing came see you of it." They finally did fight during the fourth game of the Bos ton-New York Stanley Cup finals and, appropriately, the Iron ended in n draw. In the end, though, Orr won out, leading Boston lo The Stanley Cup. Seconds after the final buzzer, Park led the biltcr Rangers In the tradilional post-series handshaking ceremonies. Th first Bruin on line was Orr. "I Ihought I just couldn't line up and shake hands with the Bruins after the Park confesses. "I was turning I go slraigM to Ihc dressing room but when saw Orr a the front o! the line, I changed my mind. I have tremendous respect for him."

Forfie- said lhe Rocket had returned home to rest, but re- peated calls to Richard's home here failed to disclose his whereabouts other than that he was "out of town on a business trip." But today, Mrs. Richard con- firmed published reports that her husband will not return to the coaching job and h.T, al ready resumed lhe business ca- reer he interrupted lo handle the Quebec team.
