Bud POILE, Hockey Executive: 1924-2005
Player and administrator headed a 'family that ate, drank and slept hockey 365 days a year'
By Nick FORTUNA, Bloomberg New Service; with files from Globe and Mail archives. Thursday, January 6, 2005 - Page S7
As a hockey player, Bud POILE helped the Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup; as a hockey executive, he managed two different National Hockey League clubs and later ran the International Hockey League.
The father of Nashville Predators General Manager David POILE, he made his National Hockey League debut with the Leafs in 1942 and led playoff scoring as part of the "Flying Forts" line with fellow Fort William, Ontario, natives Gus BODNAR and Gaye STEWARD/STEWART/STUART. From 1944 to 1945, Mr. POILE was absent from hockey while serving in the Second World War but in 1947 he became an important part of the Toronto team that won the Stanley Cup. That year, he also made the first of two consecutive all-star game appearances.
He left the Leafs for the Chicago Blackhawks as part of a major talent trade -- a blockbuster for its day. The Blackhawks, short of players after losing all-star right-winger Bill Mosienko with a broken leg in an exhibition game, sent their star scorer Max Bentley and minor-league defenceman Cy Thomas to Toronto for defencemen Bob Goldham and Ernie Dickens and all three "Flying Forts." Mr. POILE later played for the New York Rangers, Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings, recording 107 goals and 122 assists during seven National Hockey League seasons.
After hanging up his skates, he coached the Edmonton Flyers of the Western Hockey League from 1952-62, winning three league titles. After that, he spent four seasons coaching the World Hockey League's San Francisco Seals.
In 1967, Mr. POILE became the first general manager of the National Hockey League's Philadelphia Flyers where he is credited with forming the nucleus of the club's later Stanley Cup successes by drafting or acquiring such players as Bobby Clarke and Bernie Parent. Three years later, he took over the helm at the Vancouver Canucks, lured West by entrepreneur Coleman Hall, a friend with whom he had worked in San Francisco. Mr. Hall, a legendary tightwad who nevertheless lived part of the time in Hawaii, had hired Mr. POILE with the promise of an exotic holiday, as recounted in Denny Boyd's The Vancouver Canucks Story.
"The day you bring us the Stanley Cup," Mr. Hall pledged, "I'll give you and your family an all-expenses vacation in Hawaii."
"Crissakes, Coley," Mr. POILE replied, "by the time we do that they'll have built a bridge to Hawaii."
In 1973, he moved to the World Hockey Association as executive vice-president but later opted for life in the minors. In 1976, he began an eight-year stint as commissioner of the Central Hockey League and held the same position with the International Hockey League from the 1983-84 season until retiring in 1989. It was while with the International Hockey League that his son David POILE entered hockey management with the National Hockey League's Washington Capitals.
"There had been nothing else but hockey in my life," said David POILE in 1986. "My dad never pushed me into it; the only thing he said was to make sure I got a college education. Then, when I got out of college, having come from a family that ate, drank and slept hockey 365 days a year, it became the most comfortable job to get into."
In 1989, Bud POILE was given the Lester Patrick Award for outstanding service to hockey in the United States and for building up the International Hockey League as a vast farm for National Hockey League talent. When he left the International Hockey League, seven teams were affiliates of an National Hockey League club. In 1990, he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in the builder category.
Norman [Bud] POILE was born on February 10, 1924, in Fort William, Ontario He died January 3, 2005, in Vancouver. He was 80. A memorial service is scheduled for tomorrow in Vancouver.

ADKIN, Dennis William (June 5, 1919-August 24, 2005)
Well-known journalist and sports administrator, Dennis ADKIN, passed quietly last week at The Lodge at Broadmead, Victoria. Dennis had been in decline for several years after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Dennis was born and raised in Monitor (near Consort), Alberta, and left to find work in Edmonton at the age of 18. During World War 2 he served as a Petty Officer with the Royal Canadian Navy in Ste. Hyacinthe, Québec and in Scotland. He then spent a year in New York studying journalism and broadcasting at Columbia University, and working at the Canadian Press office. Dennis became a reporter and editor with the London Free Press from 1947-1965, where he met and married Alison Ronalda FORTUNE in 1951. He took over as Executive Editor of the Saskatoon Star Phoenix in 1965 before becoming Editor/Publisher of The Co-operative Consumer for Federated Cooperatives Ltd., based in Saskatoon. In addition, he produced the Saskatchewan Ski Journal and wrote an independent weekly newspaper column on Canadian affairs. Dennis was honoured by the London (Ontario) Ski Club, Ski Canada, Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame, SaskSki, and the Canadian Ski Museum (Ottawa) for his lifelong contributions to the development of skiing in Canada. He was a founding member and president of the London Ski Club and served as a Director of the Canadian Ski Association for many years. In his 21 years as President, then Executive Director, of the Saskatchewan Ski Association he created innovative programs to promote recreational and competitive cross-country and alpine skiing. His proposal to build the ski hill at Blackstrap, Saskatchewan was instrumental in Saskatoon's successful bid to host the Canada Winter Games in 1971. Dennis is survived by loving wife Alison, and children Monte, Laurie, and David and their families. He will be deeply missed. Condolences can be sent to the family at #1104 - 548 Dallas Rd.
