"You hated him for 364 days a year. And on the 365th day you collected your Stanley Cup rings. " - Ex-Montreal Canadien Steve Shutt, who won five Cups under Bowman Scotty Bowman stands atop the Detroit Red Wings bench like Il Duce on the balcony. The little man's jaw is raised, his lips pursed, his head cocked at a belligerent angle. It is the hands-on-hips pose of authority, of motionless swagger, of a barely disguised disdain for all those below. His Detroit Red Wings are minutes away from eliminating the Colorado Avalanche, the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Red Wings coach Scotty Bowman knows a thing or two about Mario Lemieux. After all, he did coach No. 66 as a player in Pittsburgh when the Penguins won the Stanley Cup in 1992. And Bowman was director of player personnel the season before, when the Pens won their first Cup. There's one characteristic that separated Lemieux from the litany of other great athletes Bowman has coached in 29 years. "People don't realize Mario was real calculating," Bowman said yesterday morning at Joe Louis Arena.

Detroit Red Wings coach Scotty Bowman, who has said he won't return next season to the Stanley Cup champions unless he is healthy enough, underwent a procedure yesterday to clear a blocked heart artery. Dr. William O'Neill, chief of cardiology at William Beaumont Hospital near Detroit, said Bowman was resting comfortably after the balloon angioplasty and should be released from the hospital today. O'Neill said no decision had been made on whether Bowman would return to the Red Wings' bench next season for the final year of his contract and a bid for a record ninth Cup as coach.

A sure-fire way to chill an interview with Paul Coffey is to mention Scotty Bowman's name. It happened again yesterday. As soon as the veteran Flyers defenseman heard Bowman's name, his lips tightened and he glared at questioners. Coffey quickly steered questions away from the Detroit Red Wings coach and his team. Before the Flyers' only visit to Detroit during the regular season, Bowman made a point of torching Coffey in front of hockey writers. Coffey played for Bowman for part of one season in Pittsburgh and later for three seasons in Detroit before Bowman shipped him to Hartford early this season for Brendan Shanahan.

Scotty Bowman, who underwent offseason surgeries to clear a blocked coronary artery and replace his arthritic left knee with a titanium joint, likely will decide by the end of this month if he'll coach again. The Detroit Red Wings' chances of winning a third straight Stanley Cup depend largely on whether Bowman returns, general manager Ken Holland said. "It's a major factor," Holland said. "I don't know if there's anybody else in the league like Scotty. He's like a superstar player.

Detroit Red Wings coach Scotty Bowman has been diagnosed with high cholesterol, high blood pressure and adult-onset diabetes, a spokeswoman for William Beaumont Hospital confirmed. The diagnosis, by Dr. William O'Neill, was made after testing last week that also revealed Bowman had a 70 percent blockage in one of three arteries leading to his heart. Bowman, who is tied with the legendary Toe Blake for the most Stanley Cups as a head coach, underwent an angioplasty Thursday to clear the blocked artery.

Scotty Bowman, the winningest coach in NHL history, is returning for another season with the Detroit Red Wings. Bowman, 66, had been mulling his future since the Red Wings' second-round playoff elimination by the Colorado Avalanche. As the league's entry draft was ending yesterday in Calgary, Detroit general manager Ken Holland said Bowman would be back under a one-year contract. Holland had told Bowman after the Colorado series he wanted him back. "I wanted to feel in my heart that I could come back and, healthwise, I wanted to make sure I was up to the challenge again," Bowman said of the month it took him to decide to return for a 29th season as an NHL coach.

As expected, Bryan Murray has agreed to give up his coaching duties with the Detroit Red Wings to concentrate on his duties as general manager. Scotty Bowman, who has more wins than any other coach in NHL history, tops the list of candidates to replace Murray. Murray's job change was determined at a meeting yesterday with owner Mike Ilitch, who decided that one role is enough for Murray and a new direction is needed from behind the bench. "I'm very pleased with the coaching job Bryan did," Ilitch said, "But perhaps a different approach is needed.

Detroit Red Wings coach and general manager Scotty Bowman was at last night's exhibition game between the Flyers and the Capitals, working to trade Keith Primeau. It's unlikely that Primeau will be coming to the Flyers. "I want to get Keith in the East, but I need to get a defenseman, and I don't think I can make a deal with Philly," said Bowman. "Actually, I'm going to try and make a deal with Washington, which is why I'm here. " So the Flyers are definitely out? "Well, I want to talk to some other club first before I say that," Bowman said.

TORONTO - Ray Shero, accepting the Hall of Fame honor Monday night on behalf of his father, the late Fred Shero, recited the famous words the Flyers coach scribbled on the blackboard during the 1974 Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins: "Win today and we walk together forever. " "Thirty-nine years later, it's safe to say that not only has that team not broken a bond to this day, but the city of Philadelphia still has a love affair with a bunch of feisty Canadian kids," said Shero, now the highly respected Pittsburgh Penguins general manager.

With his Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings standing close behind him, retiring coach Scotty Bowman looked out on a sea of cheering fans and said thank you. Bowman, who led the Wings to their third NHL title in 6 years, thanked his team for a season where it all came together. He thanked his family for years of support. Finally, the 68-year-old thanked the Detroit fans - who police said turned out more than a million strong yesterday - for their role in the team's victories and his historic career.

For the first two weeks of the season, the NHL conducted business without its most recognizable profile glaring out from behind a bench. Where was Scotty Bowman, with his lantern jaw thrust forward, his stone face masking his emotions? And would this meticulous genius return to the Detroit Red Wings following a difficult off-season and try to add to his legend by winning a record ninth Stanley Cup? The assumption was no, that surgery in July to clear a blocked artery and more surgery to replace his left knee in August would be too much for the 65-year-old Bowman to overcome.

Back then, Steve Yzerman was floating in the same stratosphere with Mario Lemieux and Wayne Gretzky as a scorer. He had 65 goals one season, 62 another and 58 during yet another. He had been the popular captain of the Detroit Red Wings for seven years. The Wings' familiar logo was practically emblazoned on his chest. Scotty Bowman, Detroit's new coach at the time, was not terribly impressed. After all, Yzerman's name wasn't engraved on the Stanley Cup, and winning the funny-looking silver bowl is what Bowman is all about.
