That was general manager Bud Poile's comment on Van- couver Canucks-Buffalo Sabres expansion draft debate last June. Today, with the upstart Can- ucks dinging stubbornly to fourth place in the stacked East Division of the National Hockey Phil ahead of pace M ONTRE AL C P W h e n centre Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins established the record for most points in a season dur- ing the 1968-69 National Hockey League campaign, lie piled up 49 points in his last 26 games to close the regular-season sched- ule with 49 goals, 77 assists and 126 points. This season he appears to be reversing his procedure and has 49 points in his first 26 a total that puts him 16 points ahead of his early 1968-69 pace. In addition, E s p o s i t o 's league-leading 22 g o a 1 s n o other player yet has reached the 20-goal is two ahead cf the pace set by Bobby Hull of Chicago Black Hawks two sea- sons ago when Hull wound up with a record 58 goals. Last week, Esposito collected seven goals and three assists in four games to increase his lead over runner-up Bobby Orr of the Bruins to 11 points.'llis career total of 532 regular-season points ranks him third among players with 500 or more points in the points-per-game category. Esposito is averaging points a game, a shade less than Hull's 1.098 and behind Stan Mikita of Chicago, who leads with 1.107. Orr. with a goal and five as- sists last week, took the assist lead away from his team-mate. The first defenceman ever to win a scoring title, Orr has 33 points, including 23 assists. HODGE THIRD Ken Hodge, Esposito's right winger, is third in the individual race with 34 points, three more than Hull. Orr has collected at least one point in 15 consecutive games, matching the longest streak in the last two seasons. During his streak, Orr scored seven goals and 20 assists for 27 points. Hull went 15 straight games with at least one point in each game in 1963-69, recording 19 goals and eight assists, while team-mate Mikita went 16 consecutive games a season earlier and counted 13 goals and 18 assists. Esposito recorded two three- goal games last week to bring his season total to three. Simi- lar feats turned in by Dav.e Keon of Toronto Maple Leafs and Pit Martin of Chicago making eight lliree-goal games so far this season. Ernie Wakely and Glenn Hall of St. Louis Blues continue as the top netminding pair with a combined gcals-against average of 2.00. Wakely. Tony Esposito of Chicago and Ed Giacomin of New York Rangers each have three shutouts. Defenceman Keith Magnuson of Chicago leads in penalty min- utes served with 103. while Van- couver Canucks lead the team penalty parade with 475 minutes in 23 games. Meanwhile in Detroit, the Red Wings, reeling under inju- ries to superstar Gordic Howe and to three veteran defence- men. received the worst news yet Monday when it was learned that No. 1 goalie Roy Edwards will be lost for from three to four weeks. Edwards suffered what was originally believed to be a mild concussion when he fell to the ice while trying to make a save in the Wing's 4-2 loss to St. Louis Blues S'unday. But x-rays taken Monday revealed that the 33-year-old Edwards received a hairline skull fracture. The three healthy goalies in the Red Wing system have total experience of seven National Hockey League games between I them. Don McLcod, 24, now on the Wing roster, has played parts of four professional minor league seasons. SCORING LEADERS O A Ph Pirn Tr-PMifs, Bel 77 57 1? 71 SCA 10 ?S 35 15 Hc'lae. H in -H 1 3. Hull.

League and Buffalo scrambling to get out of the cellar, Punch Imlach probably couldn't make the deal if he threw in a lease on Niagara Falls. "Our guys are nine feet tall says Poile, "but it doesn't take long to get cut down to size in this league. "We can't get a balloon in our heads." The Canucks are an NHL Cin- derella on and off the a time when the league governors are still expe- riencing growing pains in Oak- land, Los Angeles and Pitts- burgh, three of the cities which received franchises in 1967 when Vancouver was passed over.

SOME GAMES SOLD OUT They've had paying customers in 12 home games to date, an average of a game, and season ticket sales alone stand at There are no seats available for the Dec. 18 meeting with Montreal Cana- diens, Dec. 26 against Chicago Black Hawks or even the March 13 visit of Boston Brains. Charter flights bring in fans from all parts of British Colum- bia and as far east as Winnipeg. "There's no way anyone can look at the standings now and say we were says Canucks coach Hal Laycoe, whose only goal now and at the start of the season was to win the next game. "On short notice, Bud put to- Oether an unbelievable crew. When I was with Los Angeles, my leading scorer had 42 points the year before and I had to as- sume I was going to have simi- lar nersonnel in Vancouver. "If we continue the way we are, we have three or four play- ers who'll top that halfway through the season." Kurtenbach, the club's 34- year-old captain and leader, al- ready has nine goals, tripling his entire production with the Rangers in 1969-70, and Laycoe says New York mad.e a mistake in "leaving him unprotected. PRAISES CAPTAIN "Better players may have been said Laycoe, "but nobody drafted a better captain. "Nothing helps a man more than being depended upon." The rangy centre didn't set any personal objectives when training camp opened last Sep- tember in Calgary. "I'd like to score 20 goals and if the line ir going wall, I'll get my he said. "There are no superstars on this club, nobody to pick it up by the bootstraps. Everybody works." Laycoe had picked Kurten- bach, Ray Cullen and rookie Dale Tall on as his three centres, with Boudrias, secured from St. Louis Blues for the 530.000 waiver price, No. 4. Today, the pesky Boudrias is No. 2 and trying harder, and is the club's leading scorer with 26 points, including 12 goals. "Hal told me at training camp to go out and play my own he said. "I knew I could check in this league and he told me the goals would come if I didn't get tight out there." For Laycoe, necessity has been the mother of invention, especially on Botidrias's line. PLACED ON BENCH When Ted Taylor walked out of camp last fall, defenceman Paul Popiel moved up to left wing alongside Boudrias and Rosaire Paiement. He stayed there, leaving Taylor with the "black the bench strength, when he returned last month. Despite the Canucks' success, Poile worries a 1 o t bout slumps, their goals-against av- erage and the number of pow- er-play goals given up. "I haven't changed my think- ing from before the start of the said Poile. "The only way we're going to make the playoffs is to keep our goals-a- gainst average a t three o r below." The Canucks have giv.en up 98 goals, lu'ghest in both divisions, but Poile isn't blaming his de- fence or goaltending. ANDY CAPP 7 oaii show you now io buiiu an education fund for your children NOW!

"I understand it was a spear- ing incident whereby Stoughton speared a Medicine Hat player in the said Butlin, who added he wouldn't make "a firm" decision until he review- ed the referee's report. The incident, which resulted in a match penalty for Stough- ton, occurred in Flin Flon, Man., in a league game be- tween the Bombers and Medi- cine Hat Tigers. The injured player, defence- man Don Dirk, 18, from Em- press, Alta., was flown to Win- nipeg Sunday night and arrived in Calgary early today to visit an eye specialist. Jack Shupe, Medicine Hat coach, said: "He (Stoughton) just speared Don out of the blue. The two players went into the boards and they both went down and the play carried on so they went, tn get up. "Stoughton got up first and then wheeled around and speared Don who was still on his knees The Flin 'Flon player had earlier been suspended for five games by Buflin for another in- cident involving a match pen- alty. Browns tied with Bengals HOUSTON (AP) Coach Blanton Collier says his Cleve- land Browns have been lacking a little something "up to now." He referred to their 21-10 vie- tory over Houston Oilers Mon- day night which boosted the Browns back into a tie for the lead in the American Football Conference's Central Division. A standing-room-only Astro- dome crowd of at the game saw the Oilers mathemat- ically eliminated from the Cen- tral Division title chase. The Oilers now are 3-8-1 for the year and games behind Cleveland and Cincinnati Bengals, who are tied for the top at 6-6. Each club has two games remaining. The Browns spotted the Oilers a 3-0 first-quarter lead and then came back to lake a 21-3 lead before Houston managed to score its only touchdown with less man two minutes remain- ing.
