Objections Are Raised Over Affronts to Hockey

September 07, 1985

Once again you have insulted the intelligence of the hockey fans of Los Angeles. First, the Kings signed their first two draft choices this week and it was almost forgotten on the back page.

Second, the chart listing salaries of famous, wealthy athletes significantly omitted Wayne Gretzky of the Edmonton Oilers.

Third, Scott Ostler's column on professional athletic prodigies overlooked Mario Lemieux of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Ostler's animosity against the NHL is nothing new to those people who are used to his anti-hockey diatribes.

Finally, the Kings' release of their captain, Terry Ruskowski, and three other players was listed on the inside pages while the Lakers' release of Jamaal Wilkes and Bob McAdoo was front-page news.
