Morris Titanic was unsinkable for Sudbury Wolves in the 1972-73 season. In teams inaugural Ontario Hockey Association campaign, crafty winger rack up 61 goals and 121 points to lead the team in scoring. Following the Wolves maiden voyage, Titanic was selected 12 overall by the Buffalo Sabres, making him the first Sudbury Wolves player to be Draft in the NHL. After starting his junior career with Niagara Falls Flyers, Titanic got a new address when the team owner, Hap Emms, sold the squad to Sudbury businessman Bud Burke, who moved team North and rebranded them as Wolves. While Titanic had loved playing in Niagara Falls, he quickly embraced his new home. A lot of guys really get to like it, I like it a lot. Winters were kind of brutal, but a big deal. I have nothing but fond memories of that year, he recently told Sudbury Wolves in a telephone interview. Although Titanic scored 29 goals in his sophomore season with the Flyers, he really elevated his game in Sudbury, recording career highs in goals and points. He attributes lot of success he found with Wolves to head coach Barry MacKenzie. He really helped me and instilled in me a lot of things to take my game to the next level. He was very instrumental in me developing into the kind of player he thought I could be. He gives me lots of confidence and opportunities. It just snowball from there and I had a great season, Titanic recall. When Wolves ' first season was in books, Titanic returned to Niagara Falls for summer. While living with his former billet family, Titanic received a telephone call from the general manager of the Buffalo Sabres, Punch Imlach. I couldnt believe he was calling my billets house, I dont know how even get number, Titanic remember. After getting over the initial shock of who was at the other end of the line, Titanic recollected that Imlach told him the Sabres were thinking of drafting him and they wanted to know how much money he would want. Unsure how to respond, Titanic told Imlach he had better talk to his agent, Bob Woolf, in order to sort out financials. The very next day, Buffalo used its first pick in the 1973 NHL Amateur Draft to select Titanic 12 overall. Although it was a significant milestone, newly minted Sabre got news rather unceremoniously while working at his summer job as a gas station attendant. One of grease monkeys had the radio on in the shop and he yelled out to me, hey, you get Draft by Sabres. And that was kind of the whole deal. That was as exciting as it get back then, Titanic recall. While Titanic was eager to launch the next phase of his career at NHL level, things didnt go exactly as plan. I do not have a really good training camp.

Terrance Arthur Crisp is a Canadian former professional ice hockey coach and player. Crisp played ten seasons in the National Hockey League for the Boston Bruins,. Louis Blues, New York Islanders and Philadelphia Flyers. Crisp Coach for 11 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Philadelphia Flyers, Calgary Flames and Tampa Bay Lightning. He is currently a radio and TV broadcaster for the Nashville Predators. Crisp was a member of two Stanley Cup championship teams with the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1970s, and later Coach Calgary Flames to the title in 1989. Crisp got his start playing Jr. 'B Hockey with. Marys Lincolns of Western Jr. 'B Hockey League. In 1961 he edged out Phil Esposito of Sarnia Legionnaires for the League scoring title. Crisp began his pro career in the Boston Bruins organization, playing one season for them before being chosen by. Louis Blues in the 1967 NHL expansion draft. With the Blues, he has gone to the finals three straight seasons. In 1972, he was again chosen in the expansion draft, this time by the New York Islanders. Late in the 1972-73 season, he was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers for Jean Potvin. It is believed the trade was made because the Islanders, who would have first overall pick in the upcoming draft, intend to draft Denis Potvin, and believe having his older brother on the team would entice him to sign with the Isles instead of going to the rival World Hockey Association. Crisp played on notorious Philadelphia Flyers teams of 1970s when they were also known as the Broad Street Bullies. He won two Stanley Cups as a member of the Flyers in 1973-74 and 1974-75. Crisp retired two games into the 1976-77 season at the age of 33 to become the Flyers ' assistant Coach under Fred Shero. In the 1980s, he coached in the junior ranks and led the 1985 Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds to an undefeated season at home, going 33-0. The club finished first in the Ontario Hockey League with 54 wins, eleven losses, and one tie. The club set a Canadian junior record by winning 33 games in a row at home. Sault also took the OHL playoff championship, losing just two games, both at home. The Greyhounds represent the OHL at the Memorial Cup, where they came up short, losing to eventual Champion Prince Albert of the WHL. Thanks to his tremendous coaching success in junior, Crisp was named Head Coach of the Calgary Flames in 1987-88, following two years as Head Coach of the team's AHL affiliate in Moncton. Despite a strong record and Stanley Cup championship in 1989 over Montreal Canadiens, Crisp and some of the team's players always seem to be at odds with one another. After the Flames followed up their Stanley Cup victory with a first-round exit in 1990, Crisp was fire. He then Coach Tampa Bay Lightning from their inception in 1992 until 1997.
