Caiiiidiens ojten camp Saturday Motivation key factor says Bowman MONTREAL (CD Mont- real Canacliuns open their J971-72 National Hockey League training camp here Saturday and Scotty Bowman, the new coach of the defend- ing Stanley Cup champions, already has a fair idea what one of his main tasks will he. "Over 711 Raines, you've got to keep your players moti- Bowman said in an interview. "The coach's job is to hold their interest in j hockey. "He's got to get lo file root of any problems and not try to avoid Ihem. The coach must make decisions and the players must have supreme confidence in him." Bowman, 37. a bilingual Montreal native, is returning to the Montreal organization after four years as coach and general manager r.' St. Louis Blues. He succeeds Al MacNeil, a much-maligned man during his five-month stint as coach here. MacNeil resigned last summer to take over as gen- eral manager and coach of tile American Hockey League Nova Scotia Voyagcurs. The Voyageui's were moved to Halifax in MacNeil's native Nova Scotia from Montreal for the coming season. MacNeil look over the Cana- diens' job last Dec. 3 from Claude RueL, who in turn had been subject to scathing criti- cism by the fans here and the media. DEMAND A WINNER "M o n t r e a 1 fans demand w i n n i n Bowman said. "They're used to it. I can't say they were all that tough on Claude or Al. I don't ex- pect them to be nice to me if the team is not doing well, but I'm confident they'll be fair." At any rate, Bowman feels that Montreal, third-place fin- ishers in the NHL's East Divi- sion last season behind Boston Bruins and New York Rangers, should have a sue- cesslul year. "Goalkecping and defence have been the strong points on this team for Ihe past eight years and we should have it he said. "We don't have a lot of vet- eran players so the onus will be on Henri Richard. Frank Mahovlich, J. C. Trrmblay, Terry Harper and Jacgues Laoerrierc. If will be impor- tant for them lo lead the team. "Then the final analysis will he for the younger players lo reach their potential. Yvan Cournoyer is reaching super- star status, while Peter Ma- hovlich and Jacques Lcmaire are coming into their prime. Guy Lapointe, Rejean Houle and Tardif arc expected to improve. ''There's a plus in the re- lurn of Serge Savard. The re- purls on his leg arc- very en- couraging. When he's right lie's tops in the league." BROK1S l.lil'T LUG S'avard broke his left leg in a game here last Jan. M against Toronto Maple Leafs, ft was Ihe second time in 10 months he had broken the same leg. Bowman feels that a key In his team's continued success will be an improvement on de- fence. "I'm not thinking of playing defensive hockey, but a big thing will be to cut down on goals-against. Last season five clubs had less goals scored on them than Cana- diens and it reflected in the standings." He said goalie Ken Dryden proved himself late last sea- son and in the playoffs and expccls him to start the way he finished. Dryden was the Conn SmyLhe Trophy as the most valuable player of the playoffs when be appeared in all 20 of Montreal's post-season games. "Rogalien Vacbon's record speaks for Bowman said. "He didn't have a good season, bul he's a pretty sound 20-year-old goalie." Nine goallcnders, ]G de- fencemcn and 3D forwards will report Saturday. Among the forwards will be former Quebec Junior A Hockey League star Guy Lafleur from Quebec Remparls. The 20- year-old Lafleur was the No. 1 pick in the NHL amateur draft last June. Bowman feels that Latleur, a ISO-goal man with the Ram- parts last season, has a good chance to make his club. Will they still find Olympia? The game of hockey sells itself Nicklaus versus Trevino?

CAMPBELL GLOOMY j It was difficult to tell whether tears were welling up in Camp- bell's eyes or they were glisten- ing because of the television lights.

Basically shy, IK seemed al ease despite lelcvi-1 sion cameras in front of him, j plus microphones and a I tape recorders, It was NVirris who introduced Howe, first (uming towards him and saying: "I think it's unuec- i essary for mo to tell you what you've done for this organiza- tion and for hockey." Then he added: "He is al- ready wilh our life insurance company. But also now he is n vicc-presidcnl of our organiza- tion, and as such I'd like lo wel- come you to all our problems."
