T RADE ENDS DISAPPOINTING R ED WING STINT
BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Bruins,
see ing durability in the net, swapped
veteran goaltenders Wednesday with
the Red Wings, sending Gilles Gilbert to
Detroit for Rogatien Vachon.
"It goes back a number of years in
our attraction to Vachon as a goalten-
der, particularly his play with Los-
Angeles and the way he played against
the Bruins and in the Canada Cup in
1976," said Boston General Manager
"I think 'it is a good trade for both of
us," said Jimmy Skinner, director of
hockey operations for Detroit. "Boston
was looking for a topnotch, experienced
goaltender, which Vachon is, and I
wanted Gilbert because I've liked him
ever since he played junior."
Vachon, 34, spent four full seasons
with Montreal, seven with Los Angeles,
and two with Detroit. Gilbert, 31, has
played the last seven years in the
National Hockey League with Boston.
He was sidelined the last third of last
season with a back injury.
Gilbert's back has given him ab-
solutely no problem. He's gone through
two post-season physicals and come
through both with flying colors," said
Sinden. But, he added, "with a lower
back problem, you never know," and
for Vachon, "the capability of playing.
60 games a season is there."
Vachon was unhappy in Detroit,
where his signing after the 1977-78
season as a free agent caused a furor.
