Garden Critical Part Of Development Plans

BOSTON—New faces will abound in Boston Bruin uniforms next season but the team’s most significant addition may be sitting in the front office in a three-piece suit. He is William D. Hassett Jr., the 50-year-old New York real estate developer, who was named in June as the new chairman and chief executive officer of the Bruins and the Boston Garden. Paul Mooney will still be president of the club, supervising the day-to-day business of both the team and the Garden. In fact, he even received a vote of confidence from his new boss. “Paul Mooney has been terrific and is terrific,” said Hassett. “However, I bring a real business background for this type of development.” “This,” said Jeremy Jacobs, head of Delaware North, the Buffalo-based conglomerate that owns the Bruins and the Garden, “is…

New Line Could Be No. 99, Kurri, Perreault

EDMONTON—Gibert Perreault may be headed for his 36th birthday, but that doesn’t seem to bother Glen Sather. The manager-coach of the dethroned Stanley Cup champions would love to see the veteran Buffalo Sabre forward clothed in the silks of his Edmonton Oilers. In fact, Sather could even envision Perrault filling the role of Wayne Gretzky’s left winger. “I don’t think he’d have any trouble playing with Wayne and Jari (Kurri),” said Sather of the semi-retired Sabre who has left the door open to possibly performing once again…likely somewhere else than Buffalo. Say, for example, in Edmonton, Montreal or Quebec. “Of course, he can still play,” said Sather, who doesn’t think the 16-year National Hockey League veteran will be back in Buffalo.

Patrick Is Out, Esposito Is In

Shuffle At The Top Signals A New Start BY WALT MacPEEK NEW YORK—When someone asked Phil Esposito at his first press conference as the New York Rangers’ new general manager whether he planned to be “a wheeler dealer”, the Hall of Fame center laughed at the suggestion…and then went out and acquired four new players in the next 15 days. In addition to obtaining center Kelly Kisio, right winger Lane Lambert and defenseman Jim Leavins from Detroit in exchange for goalie Glen Hanlon and two third-round draft choices, Esposito signed free-agent goalie Doug Soetaert, re-signed left winger Jan Erixon and announced that defenseman Reijo Ruotsalainen will be playing in Switzerland next season. “It’s not always going to be like this,” Esposito said after completing the trade with Detroit. “It’s not part of our plan…
