Michel Bergeron has been named to replace Jean Perron as coach of the Quebec Nordiques, the NHL team said today. Bergeron, who was dismissed as coach of the New York Rangers on April 1 with two games left in the regular season, coached the Nordiques for seven years before joining the Rangers in 1987. Rangers General Manager Phil Esposito said he fired the flamboyant Bergeron because of insubordination, accusing him of secretly trying to make trades. Perron, an assistant general manager who became Nordiques coach Dec. 16 when Ron Lapointe was forced to step down because of a cancerous kidney, said he asked to be relieved of his duties last Monday.

Jean Perron, who led the Montreal Canadiens to the Stanley Cup in his first year as coach in 1986, resigned Monday. Perron's coaching decisions had been openly questioned by many players this season, including veteran defenseman Larry Robinson. "Definitely, we had a major problem in the organization," General Manager Serge Savard said at a news conference not attended by Perron. "This problem was too large to handle so he felt he had to resign."

Michel Bergeron, fired and replaced Saturday by Phil Esposito, said of next season, "One thing is for sure: I'll be coaching somewhere" in the National Hockey League. The question is, where? Quebec writers are lobbying for the Nordiques to rehire Bergeron, who had a 243-222-79 record with them from 1980-87 and twice took them to the Stanley Cup semifinals. This year's Nordiques had the league's worst record (27-46-7), setting a club record for losses. They were 10-20-2 when Coach Ron Lapointe resigned after being stricken with cancer of the kidneys, and 17-26-5 under his replacement, Jean Perron, who has two years left on a contract.

It should come as no surprise that youths today are as race conscious as their predecessors. In spite of cosmetic changes that have taken place in this nation over the past quarter of a century, racism and its counterpart, white supremacy, remain pervasive in every major American institution and are still entrenched in all areas of social interaction, e.g., economics, education, labor, law, politics, etc.

Montreal Canadiens Coach Jean Perron will have a difficult decision to make when goaltender Patrick Roy returns from his eight-game suspension. Brian Hayward, Roy's replacement, made 25 saves Monday night to help the Canadiens extend their unbeaten streak to seven games with a 3-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs at Montreal. Hayward has played the last six games and will play in at least two more before Roy comes back.
