NHL The Minors The Amateurs Columnists Departments Quote Of The Week “I just don’t agree with guys who make a name for themselves carving people up or making a living off other people’s blood and sweat. They’ll say, ‘You’re overrated.’ Well, who overrated him? You did. You thought he was great at one time Now you change your mind and say he’s overrated. You’re trying to cover up for your own mistake. “ —St. Louis Blue netminder Mike Liui, reacting to media criticism that he isn’t the same goaltender he was in 1980-81. Story on Page 4.…

Art Of Hip Checking Told By Leafs’ Fairish

TORONTO—Somewhere, sometime this season, Dave Farrish will get his hip out of joint and impede the progress of an opposing player. When it happens, it will serve notice that there’s still some traces of yesteryear clinging on in today’s version of the National Hockey League. Farrish is another in the long line of Maple Leaf defensemen who hip check. First there was Baun, then Glennie and now there’s Farrish.

Nordiques Start New Injury Cycle

QUEBEC CITY—”In 1983-84, I know we will improve on a number of things. I want to improve our defense first of all. I want to improve communications between players and management.

Injuries, the factor that singlehandely crippled the Nords’ 1982-83 season, has returned with a distateful passion and if the Nords aren’t unlucky then they must not be taking their vitamins. J. F. Sauve, Dave Pichette and Yves Heroux…
