he could be a good addition.
"He's a 'gamer,' a team-
oriented player with a built-
in desire to succeed and do
what you ask.
"We feel he can jump in
and give a good, solid effort
every night. There have been
other older (Steve is 27)
players who have stepped up
into regular playing roles
from the same background,
and we feel he could be one of
them!"
Richmond, who has a real
estate license and hopes to
move back to Chicago this
summer and become
established in the business
world, said changing teams
has been an enlightning
experience:
"When you play against
another team, there are
players you don't like and you
never think you could be
friendly with if you were
teammates. But when you get
traded, there are very few
players you don't get along
with.
"I think that as a group,
pro hockey players are more
alike than other professional
athletes. There isn't the race
factor, most of us had parents
who could dig up the money
for new • skates, sticks and
equipment every year and
take us to those 5 a.m. prac-
tices, and most of us left home
in our teens to play junior
hockey?'
Regarding his trades and
trips back to the minors, he
wasn't as accepting, saying:
"There is a lot of politics
in the NHL, just like in
amateur sports. A lot of the
times decisions are made and
you don't know just why
you're being traded or sent to
the minors — and no one will
give you an answer. So you
just 'suck it up' and go on!'
Regarding his trade from
the Rangers, who are third in
their division, to the lowly
Devils, he noted that "the
Rangers were a more
established team, with lots of
cliques.. The Devils are a
young team thatis hopefully
improving.
"The crowd's reaction to
me in New York? I think it
was more my style of play
than my religion. But when I
was with the Rangers it seem-
ed like more people were
aware that I was Jewish and
I had a lot more speaking
engagements.
"I don't know if the New
Jersey Jewish organizations
know I'm Jewish, or don't
care because the team is los-
ing so often!"
Asked about playing or
not playing on -Yom Kippur,
Richmond answered: "If
you're 'Sandy Koufax` (a star)
you don't have to pitch on

Steve Richmond tries to keep the puck out of his opponent's hands.

Yom Kippur. If you're not .. .
"They say 'You don't
HAVE to play, but . ."
Being a professional
athlete, Richmond pointed
out, "it's not just visiting
other cities, seeing the sights,
dining out and then playing.
In our division, luckily, most
of our trips are short ones.
But it seems like every time
we go on an extended trip,
something goes wrong. We
spend a lot of hours sitting in
airports waiting for a
rescheduled flight.
"I spend a lot of time play-
ing cards and building up the
bank accounts of our twins,
Daniel and Jennifer. They
won't have to win athletic
scholarships to go to a good
college?'
Steve's wife, Anne, was a
member of the women's
basketball team at Michigan
so if bloodlines mean anthing,
the twins could be outstan-
ding athletes some day.
Richmond admitted he
doesn't have any definite
goals as an athlete, except to
stay in the NHL as long as he
can.
"As long as it's fun," he add-
ed. "If it's ten years, fine. If
this is the last year, I've still
been part of an elite group of
professional athletes. I con-
sider myself fortunate to play
even one game in the 'majors!
"So many youngsters have
dreams of playing in the pros
. . . I'm one of the few to have
that dream come true.
"You know, I was one of
three players on my hockey
team in Chicago that was of-
fered the chance to play in
Canada. At the age of 15 it
was a tough decision to make —

but I'd do it again. Could the
other two have won college
scholarships or made it in the
pros?
"They'll never know!" 1:1
