Then, afler run-scor- ing hits by Billy Williams and Glenn Beckerl had put Chicago on top again in the seventh, Slan Fischler's Enside Hockey PLAHENCE Campbell, who is approaching 67 years, will fight off challengers to lu's throne until the National Jockey 1-eague bosses Irelieve that Campbell is physically incapable of continuing. He then will be asked to resign, or if ic refuses given the boot. His replacement most likely will >c (he first American ever lo run the NHL. James Cullcii, secretary and general counsel for l-ho St. Louis Blues. The future of the World Hockey Association docs NOT rest jti the hands of its directors and moneyinen but, more realis- .ically, on the shoulders of two American attorneys, Bob iVoolf of Boslon and Howard Casper of Philadelphia. If eillier of the two banisters decides the is In anyway unsound, will direct so many players away (roni it Hist" the ensuing problems will be too much lor the new league to sustain. Casper's key client Is goalie Bcrnlc Parent who already is on record as agreeing to sign with Miami's Screaming Eagles of the WIIA. Simply by changing his mind, Casper couM torpedo the operation. Wooll's prize is Derek Sanderson of Lhn Bruins, but Hie Boiton lawyer also handles goalia Gerry Cheevers. left .wing Vic Hadfield of the Rangers and n few other good ones. So far, bolh Wool! onrt Casper have been friendly toward the WHA. If (lie friendship continues several key NHLers ore likely lo jump. While most of the attention has been focused on Toronto attorney Al Eagleson and. Woolf, Casper has quietly himself an empire o( NHL clients; so much so that two en- tire teams, the Detroit Red Wuigs arid Buffalo Sabres con- ferred with him en masse at the end of the season. He now is in a position lo literally deliver dozens of quality players to Ihe W1IA. Kansas Cily Is n sure thing lo gain to thr NHL In It next expansion, 1974-75. The other cily be selected from Cleveland, Cincinnati, Washington-Baltimore and India- napolis, among others. The outside favorifc is Washington-Bal- timore but the "sleeper" is Indianapolis. Look Cor Entile Francis to step out as general manager and coach of the New York Rangers, remain manager and appoint center Phil Goyette as coach. The dual job has been a burden lo Francis despite his two helpful Heutenarv'.s, Lou Passador and Steve Brklacich, both of whom have maiinging and coaching potential. By the end o[ next season every N1IL player but a handful will be represented by an attorney, and that goes right down lo the most obscure third liner. Centre Bill Clement of the Philadelphia Flyers said it for his colleagues tlie olher day: "It's not a question of whether I'll have a lawyer rep- resent me, it's Just a question of who." Tlie big contract explosions this Summer will be taking place at Madison Square Garden where Emile Francis will be confronted with fat salary hikes. Rangers captain V i c Hadfielrj, with a 50-goal season under his belt will be rep- resented by Bob Woolf, Jean Ratelle, who had his most bountiful scoring year, is using Gerry Patterson of Montreal while Rod Gilbert will bo handled by big-time rep Mark Mc- Cormack of Cleveland. On top of that, First All-Star defense- man Brad Park who has been egregiously underpaid by Francis, is in for a whopping raise. It all adds up lo dy- namite doings and maybe a hold out or four. NHL owners, uOio would be delighted to see Charlie Fin- ley unloaded as owner of the California Golden Seals, are de- veloping a similar antipathy towards New York Islanders' boss, Roe Roe. They'd prefer someone wlio wasn't splitting his time with a pro basketball team (the New York and they're nlso disturbed with Boc's outlandish, scvcn-Iigure bas- i ketball salaries which they fear will further lift the MIL pay scale. Wynn brought them back again in the eighth with his third homer of Ihe yepr. Cincinnati li.ul a 7-1 lead into the eighth inning when the Bucs scored twice, llien pushed across three more runs in the bottom of (lie ninth before re- liever Vcdro Horbon got Bob Robertson tor Ihe game ending out. on a fly ball with Ihe bases loaded. II preserved Gary Nolan's third victory of (be season. Boliby Tolan drove in three runs with a homer and single but it was Dave Cnncepcion's bases- loaded single in tho seventh that drove in what proved lo be tho decisive luo runs Hick Vv'isc finally picked up his first victory as a Cardinal after two defeats and diet it by knocking in Ihe go-ahead rims in SI.
