y -y r - r THE GAZETTE, THURSDAY, APRIL 16, 1964 27 M'liiiiiiMiimsiuuHiuiHiM Campbell Suggests Trophy For Outstanding Player In Cup Final TORONTO Ot Clarence Campbell, President of the National Hockey League, thinks it's time his organization offered a pew trophy. "I've been thinking about it for about three years now," said Campbell. "We should have a trophy to honor the best player in the Stanley Cup finals. The details haven't been worked out yet because I would like to get ideas from various people. "Baseball and football have special awards for a player who is outstanding in the World Series, National Football League and Grey Cup finals and I think we should have something along the same lines." Campbell admitted this is strictly his idea and that he has not discussed it with league governors. "It hasn't gotten that far yet. I'm still mulling the idea around in my head and asking questions around, trying to get people's reaction to the suggestion and any new angles they may come up with. "But I do think it would add to the finals by giving, the players something more to shoot at There would be a trophy and a cash award to go with it." Reminded that the awards presented in baseball and football are not league honors but are sponsored commercially, Campbell replied: "We certainly wouldn't have this trophy sponsored. The league would put up both the trophy and money. There are any number of people the award could be named after. But, as I say, all I have is the basic idea right now. The details have to be ironed out. The governors of the league would have to make the final decision. "The chief problem for them I think is whether or not it would be a lasting award. They would have to be assured it would not be presented a couple of times then dropped." Campbell favors balloting for the new trophy by members of the press, radio and television who have covered league games all season. "One idea is to have a representative from each of the four cities not in the final do the voting. They would be sent by the league to each game. Alter each game they would award a total of say 100 points, distributed to the top three star players in the game. "At the end of the series tha chairman of the balloting committee would add up the points and make the presentation after the final game. If there is a tie, he would cast the deciding vote." uituiHiuifiiiuiuiim afs Wert. Wm est At tlaces v 1 'h cb ','' j 'f' Wings' stars Gordie Howe (left), Larry Jeffrey shed Summerside Over Treatment By CAHA Tonight at 8:15 the Summer side Legionnaires junior hockey team will leave Montreal by train for Prince Edward Island. They will leave behind them two one-sided defeats in the Memorial Cup round-robin play off and a bitter distaste for the Canadian Amateur Hockey Asso ciation. The CAHA ordered the Mari time junior champions to return home after losing 9-1 to Ottawa Montagnards and 15-0 to NDG Monarchs. "Fleury (CAHA vice-president Lionel Fleury of Quebec City) is setting hockey back 10 - 20 years in the Maritimes, charged Legionnaires GM Joe Clark. Clark received a telegram from Fleury Tuesday afternoon saying: "After conferring with the Maritime branch president and others concerned there is no point in your team's continu ing in the series . . ." Clark replied by telegram that his team must receive $1,200 by Thursday to provide suitable accommodation for the return trip. Otherwise his team would continue as scheduled in the tournament. "Apparently they follow the axiom, 'If you win or lose and not how well you play the game,' " said Clark. Last night Clark received a reply from CAHA president Art Potter of Edmonton. Potter confirmed the CAHA ruling that summerside should not compete in further games and wired $600 to the team with the remainder to be paid after submitting an expense account. "This actually originated before we even completed our first game," said Clark. "I was called into a meeting of CAHA and QAHA officials and they suggested that we concede on the grounds that it was a poor crowd. "But if we had beaten them 10- 0 the crowd would have been the same," added Clark. "The fault was in scheduling the games in the Forum. Our primary concern is minor hockey and it works out best in a small community. "Toronto Leafs lost a game 11- 0 this season and the Scandinavian countries have lost Curling ST. GEORGI Presidents M.

"That first night they said they considered NDG much stronger than the Monties so I suggested that Ottawa and NDG play on Wednesday night in our place and they could have fin ished the whole tournament without any trouble. But Fleury said they couldn't bring Ottawa here Wednesday with players in school, etc. "Well, we've got three players in school and five working with- NDG, Ottawa Play Saturday With Maritime champion Summerside conveniently shunted aside the Memorial Cup round-robin playoff continues Saturday afternoon at the Forum with NDG Monarchs meeting Ottawa Montagnards. If NDG wins the game they will advance against the Ontario champion to decide the eastern Canadian Memorial Cub berth. If Ottawa wins another game will be held Sunday afternoon, also at 2 p.m. NDG has won both its games to date for four points while Ottawa has two points on a single victory and one" defeat. out pay while they're away," continued Clark. "By the time we arrive home we will be away nine days for two hockeyj eames." And while the team i is away it's costing the CAHA roughly $200 per day. The Summerside team voted unanimously to continue when Clark approached them about pulling out of the tournament. 'They didn t want to concede they wanted to finish it even though some of them were home sick," said Clark. 'This is the talk of the island," added Clark, "We have a taped radio program every day for eight minutes and the folks are pretty mad back there prive the Maritime AMERICAN LEAGUE WEDNESDAY'S GAME Cleveland 4, Quebec 2.

' (CP Photo) gear after overtime Bitter champs of their right to compete in the 'experimental' tour nament comes right on the heels of a major blunder last week. After both Ottawa Montagn ards and Windsor, N.S. Allan Cup teams were peeved at Wally Harris of Montreal ruling with an iron hand in their play off series the CAHA removed him from the series. The move met with incredibility in Montreal where Harris is regarded as the outstanding official of an adequate staff. "With all the talk about the NHL officials I thmk Harris could do a better job than some of them," says QAHA secretary-registrar Mickey MacDon-ald, "Somebody in Ottawa showed a lack of judgment in having him recalled from the Series." In keeping with their Sum merside decision the CAHA should call off the OHA-NOHA series scheduled for next week before it starts. Toronto Marlboros, the class of the OHA, will probably meet Sault Ste. Marie in the Ontario final. Two weeks ago Marlies dumped a reinforced team in Sudbury 9-1 and 8-3 while miss ing three regulars. The NOHA winner won't be allowed to strengthen for the series as they operate under the OHA. With the first two games in Toronto skyrocket scores could develop. Let the CAHA be warned.

To prepare for tonight's third game in the Stanley Cup finals, manager-coach Abel escorted his Detroit Red Wings to the win, place and show windows Wednesday. While the Wings were watching the horses go by, the Maple Leafs were in Toronto staging races of their own. up and down the ice surface at Maple Leaf Gardens. No one in the hockey world Wednesday was inclined to blast Abel for allowing his charges to fritter away their time. At Toronto Tuesday night it was the Leafs who looked as they were on holiday as they dropped a 4-3 overtime decision and were out-shot 49 to 29. The Wings were fresh from a day at the Fort Erie racetrack where many of them picked up some extra cash and all of them gathered some tips on speed. Apparently inspired by the horses, the Red Wing for wards moved around the Gardens ice as if they were jet-propelled. The Leafs, who always spend (their between-game days at full-dress rehearsals, moved like sleepy snails for three-quarters of the game. No Picnic For Punch Punch Imlach, Abel's counter part for the opposition, wants no part of picnics, bus outings or racetrack training. "We have all summer to relax," Imlach said in Toronto Wednesday. "Right now our job is to win big hockey games and as far as I'm concerned the only way to get ready for a game is to practice so we'll know what we're doing. Abel can have his horses." The Leafs, minus reserve de- fenceman Kent Douglas who re ceived a slight injury at Wednes day's practice, were expected here by train late Wednesday night for the third and fourth games in the series. Toronto won Saturday's opener 3-2 on a goal by Bob Pulford with two seconds remaining. Tuesday's game would not have threatened to reach overtime had it not been for the stingy goaltending of 39-year-old Johnny Bower, who turned aside 38 shots in regulation time and covered up time and again for the ineptitude of the Toronto forwards. With 43 seconds remaining, a shot by Andy Bathgate caromed off Gerry Ehman's leg into the Detroit net and forced the first overtime game in , Stanley Cup finals in five years. Exactly five years ago Tuesday night Dick Duff of Toronto scored in overtime to beat Montreal Cana- diens 3-2. It was the only Leaf win oi that series. Ullman Big Winner Tuesday night Norm Ullman, who had won $200 at Fort Erie the day before, did most of the work to set up Larry Jeffrey's goal and prevent the injustice of a Toronto win. "There were no breaks in the game," Imlach said Wednesday. "We just couldn't get hold of the puck." Both coaches say they will not change their strategy for tonight's game. Abel has given his wingers standing orders to room into the Toronto corners and dig for the puck, a manoeuvre that proved ultra successful Tuesday. Imlach's policy: "We've got to out-hustle them. That's the only way to beat the Wings. I ooooooooooo NOTICE TO GOLFERS NEW SEASON STARTING IN A FEW DAYS CHOICE DATES STILL AVAILABLE FOR TOURNAMENTS ANJOU GOLF CENTRE INC. 3524930 OOOOOOOOOOO workers to idle away their time at tne loieao, Ohio, Kaceway I've told my guys they've got to skate, and the forwards can't just stand around and become spectators. The Detroiters can kill you as soon as you start standing still." Toronto has missed the puck clearing ability of defenceman Carl Brewer who suffered rib injuries in the seventh game of the semi-finals in Montreal. Brewer's forte is his skill at rushing the puck out of his own zone while the opposing forwards are getting turned around. Brewer Still Doubtful Although he went all out in Wednesday's practice, Brewer said he still did iiol feel in top shape. Imlach said no decision about using him will be made until just before game time tonight. The Wings reported from Toledo that all were fit and ready to go. "I think we can take them now," said Gordie Howe. "This club has more spirit than any I've played with and there isn't a quitter in the crowd." The Leaf players made no excuses about Tuesday's calibre of play. Said team captain George Armstrong: "Pulford's line, Bower and the defence played well. The rest of us just weren't in the game." mmmm , ,. P" U Sjit? $ , ff ! V 'li Discover Full-Depth Pleasure DOW Refreshes! Perfectly aged to round out true full-bodied Dow ale flavour DOW Rewards!

However the Wings, who had speed to burn in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime victory at Toronto, are convinced that Coach Sid Abel's decision to give them plenty of rest will pay off in the long run. Detroit takes baseball swing Nuts, Says The Leafs say they have no quarrel with Imlach's whip-cracking. "After all this is the third final in a row for us and that sort of prove's the coach's strategy," said one of the Toronto players yesterday. Bill Gadsby, veteran Detroit defenceman with 18 NHL seasons behind him, thinks otherwise and makes no bones about it.

Yessir, you know something, we are going to take that Toronto club." aaiiiM9ws"' H ' 'I J ALE
