DEVELLANO EMPHASIZES COLLEGE GAME
Wings' GM rates players, team
BY DUANE ROOSE
This is the second part of a two-
part series on Red Wings General
Manager Jim Devellano.
Daily: Which Red Wings have par-
ticularly impressed you so far this
Devellano: We are very pleased
with Gerard Gallant. Gerard has
produced seven goals in his first 12
games and has also given the team a
lot of second effort. Chris Cichocki
has added a lot of gumption to our
hockey team, and Tim Friday, who is
injured now, has been a solid defen-
seman for us. So there have been
some good things that have happened
to us despite our record.
THE DAILY: Which players would
you have expected a little more
production out of so far this season?
DEVELLANO: Steve Yzerman
(one goal in 12 games), Ron Duguay
(two goals), Warren Young (zero
goals), and John Ogrodnick (four
goals) are people capable of scoring
much more than they have.
Hopefully, they'll be able to get their
figures up a bit soon.
THE DAILY: Although most of the
trade rumors that were circulating
around have died in the last week or
two, could you comment on such
rumors, specifically those involving
DEVELLANO: Well, basically, I
have not tried to peddle Ron Duguay.
The truth of the matter is that his
name is one that always comes up
from the other teams because they all
have an interest in Ron. We're always
trying to improve our team, and part
of my job is to talk to the other general
managers to see if I can strengthen
our team. The problem is we're all
trying to get a battleship for a
rowboat, and you're not going to get a
steal too often.
THE DAILY: With a good crop of
junior prospects coming up in this
year's draft, do you have any intention
of making a trade to improve
Detroit's draft position?
Devellano: We would certainly like
to improve our position in the draft,
but that's tough to do because what
we have, we need on the ice right now.
Who knows, maybe between now and
the end of the season, we will have
that luxury. One thing we won't do
here is trade our draft choices. We
have 12 picks in every draft and we're
going to make our selections.
THE DAILY: As a university
newspaper, we have an interest in
college hockey. Could you share with
us your views on the college game and
how the Red Wings go about scouting
DEVELLANO: We are very high
on the colleges. We probably signed
more college free agents in one year
than any team has done in a long time.
We have two draft choices playing for
Michigan State, one at Michigan
Tech, and we also have a former-
Michigan player, Ted Speers, playing
for our farm team in Adirondack.
Billy Dea is our Director of Scouting,
and he has a network of three part-
time scouts (in Boston, Detroit, and
Minnesota), so all of our full-time
scouts get a chance to look at the top
college prospects. The growth of the
game has really increased in the
States, and that's why we have such a
strong interest in the college game.
THE DAILY: The NHL's current
divisional alignment and playoff
system seems to have generated some
dissatisfaction among other clubs. Do
you feel that there will be a change in
the present set-up?
DEVELLANO: I don't think that
there will be any change (in the
divisional alignment). We would cer-
tainly be against any such change.
We're happy with the division we're
in. Our travel is good, we have good
rivalries, so we're very happy with
the set-up as it is.
THE DAILY: One final question:
Where do you feel that the Red Wings
are headed this season and in the
DEVELLANO: Well, our goal, like
any team's, is to eventually win the
Stanley Cup. Right now, we're in the
fourth year of an eight-year program.
Eight years gives the team a lot of
draft choices and a chance to do some
What we would like to do this year is
have a real competitive hockey club
within the Norris Division. We'd cer-
tainly like to do something in the
playoffs. As for long-range goals,
we'd like to get as many good young
players as we can, hang on to our A
draft choices, make a good deal here
and there, sign some college free
agents, and hopefully, down the road
in three or four years, we can take a
shot at the Stanley Cup.

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (Ap) -
The Pacific-10 Conference has
penalized Arizona State's basketbal
program with a one-year probation
period in which the Sun Devils will not
be allowed to grant new scholarships
in the sport, Pac-10 Commissioner
Thomas C. Hansen announced yester-
During the 1986 calendar year, ASU
will be prohibited from doing any off-
season recruiting of basketballj
players and from providing any paid
recruiting visits to campus. Prospec
tive recruits may be contacted by
mail or telephone, however.
The terms of the probation do not
include sanctions which would
prohibit the ASU team from playing in
televised games or participating in
postseason tournaments. The action
by the conference was taken because
of 20 rules violations, mostly involving
recruiting, Hanson said.
Southern Cal was placed on
probation for two years for violations,
in its football program, but the
Trojans will be allowed to play in
televised games and post-season
games. The violations included im-
proper control of complimentary
tickets provided for players and im-
proper recruiting inducements, ac-
cording to Hansen.

Faust visits Marshall
HUNTINGTON, W. Va. (AP) -
Former Notre Dame football Coach
Gerry Faust slipped onto the Marshall
University campus for 5% hours
yesterday to interview for the vacant
head coaching position at the school,
the coach said.
"I didn't want anybody to know that
I was here, but it kind of slipped out of
the bag," Faust told the Parthenon,
Marshall's student newspaper.
Faust, who left Notre Dame last
month after compiling the most losses
ever by a Fighting Irish coach, said he
was being considered as a replacment
for former Marshall football coach
