Thats interesting about Bathgate, had a sense of justice, moral turpitude about things. Didnt appreciate the way Imlach ran Mahovlich, the dressing room, bench. Outspoken, got into trouble for penning an article about spearing & headhunting earlier while with New York. Traded to Detroit by Imlach, Marcel Pronovost in-bound.... noted as well Dink referencing the possibility that when Campbell's tenure as League President expires 6yrs hence from the date of that article "an American might be sought to fill the position". Ok. And so what? How about they pick the best guy for the job, passport, place of birth irrelevant? We wound up with John Ziegler, long time compadre & Council for Bruce Norris & the Red Wings of course. A facilitator, expeditor. Did what was he told. Not dissimilar to Campbell in that regard, just a bit more sophisticated about it as the times dictated, changed. Still, amusing to re-call Johnny, helmet hair, silk ties, loafers and his "Pie Charts". Partying it up with various members of the Board of Governors, with Alan Eagleson in his London townhome n' whatnot. Like its 1999. Funny hats & strippers.
