They have finished in first place each of those three years. He came to the Eskimos via Toronto and B.C.

Eagleson says pro hockey about to pay for attitudes TORONTO (CP) Alan Eagleson says professional hockey is about to pay for its lackadaisical approach to ex- pansion, inflated salaries and the demise of several minor leagues. The executive director of the National Hockey League Players' Association will appear later this week before the Senate committee on banking, trade and commerce which now is studying the Combines Investigation known as Bill "In the last few weeks some 140 professional hockey players reported they are without Eagleson said this week. "They are players who, in the last two years, have belonged either to an NHL or a WHA team. Eagleson identified defen- ceman Arnie Brown as one of the unemployed along with goaltender Gerry Gray and forwards Real Lemieux and Danny Schock. In the case of Lemieux, Eagleson said the NHL's Buf- falo Sabres told him to "go home, because they had no further need for his services." "Then there's Arnie Brown, formerly with Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings, New York Islanders and Atlanta Flames "One day the Flames called him in and told him he had a year left on his contract but they wanted him to play in Omaha. They had no room for him at Atlanta and no NHL team was interested in him. "He refused and asked if they would release him if he made his own deal withh an NHL or WHA team. They agreed and he signed with Michigan Stags (of the World Hockey "Gerry Gray, who belongs to the (NHL) Islanders, was shipped to Indianapolis (Racers of the WHA) and told one day: 'Sonny, you're out of work; good luck.' "Or take the case of Dan Schock (brother of Pittsburgh Penguins captain, Ron He was traded to Philadelphia Flyers by Boston Bruins for Mike Walton. They shipped him to Richmond (of the American League) where he scored 48 goals two years ago and 23 last year "The owners of the Rich- mond team, which is co- sponsored by Philadelphia and Washington Capitals, called him in and just let him go.

Box 670, Lethbridge, Alberta I wish to apply for a rural town paper route in the town of: NAME ADDRESS AGE PHONE Parents will be required to sign a consent form if applicant is accepted. Eagleson lists expansion by both the NHL and WHA as contributing to the closure of minor pro leagues, thus depriving many still young players of an opportunity to perform. You'll find that every time one of the big pro leagues expands, one of the farm teams is being forced out of business. Just think of Boston, Cleveland, Portland, Jackson- ville and the rest." Eagleson also offered some suggestions that no doubt he'll present to the House com- mittee this week. "The most important step would be consolidation of the existing product after making some he said. "The World Hockey Associa- tion should cut down to eight strong teams from 14. "Then it could compete with the NHL. "As for the NHL, if they had any brains they'd do some of the following: "First, move California Seals out of Oakland and place them in Denver or Seattle where they would draw fans. Then the Washington and Kan- sas City (Scouts) franchises should be reviewed and ad- justments made to either help them or return their money. "What's the sense of having beautiful buildings and no fans. If the NHL wants to ex- pand, it should do something, for the new being allowed to protect only 10 players (instead of "I think it's ridiculous to see such players -is (John) Van Boxmeer of Montreal Canadiens, Chuck Lefley and Claude Larose of the same team until they were traded to St. Louis sitting in the stands while Washingtyon and Kansas City are dying for talent."

Lacroix, who led the league in 1972-73 with 124 points for Philadelphia Blazers, picked up seven assists to bring his season's totals to 23 assists and 34 points, five back of the leaders Bobby Hull of Winnipeg Jets picked up only assist in three games and dropped back into a tie for the lead at 39 points with Larry Lund of Houston Aeros, who had tnree during the week. The week was Hull's most unproductive of the season. He was on the ice for five op- position goals, giving him a minus four for the week, but leaving him with a season record of plus 25. Hull continues to lead in goals with 23, while linemate Ulf Nilsson is tops in assists with 27. Serge Bernier of Quebec Nordiques had three goals and three assists during the week to move into a third-place tie ;with Frank Hughes of Hous- ton and Nilsson at 35 points.

PhOlM (403) HOME AND OFFICE SAFES Bridgman leading, Trottier 13 back SASKATOON (CP) The reasons for the success en- joyed by Victoria Cougars of the Western Canada Hockey League so far this season aren't too hard to discover. Cougars, currently the runaway leaders in the league's Western Division, lengthened their unbeaten streak to 16 games including one tie with two weekend vic- tories. A balanced scoring at- tack along with solid goaltending have bee the main reasons. Mel Bridgman, one of four Cougars in the top 10, as shown by statistics released Monday which include weekend action, remains the leagues top scorer. A five goal performance by Bridgeman in a 15-1 romp over Winnipeg Clubs Saturday was the main part of a seven- point weekend which increas- ed his totals to a league leading 35 goals and 39 assists for 74 points. Lethbridge Broncos' Bryan Trottier remains in second place, 13 points off the pace. However, Trottier retained his lead in assists by a slim margin of one as the Bronco forward has 40 helpers among his 81 points. Victoria players Peter Morris is third with 56 points. Jim Gustafson seventh with 52 and Danny Lucas 10th at 47 to round out the Cougars in the top 10. The Victoria netminding duo of Lloyd Saar and Bob Leslie runs 2-3 in that department. Medicine Hat Tigers' Jerry Farwell con- tinues to lead with a 3.18 goals against average but the Cougar duo aren't far behind. Saar is second with a 3.35 goals against mark while Leslie is third at 3.38. Calgary Centennials' Larry Hendricks has the most saves 972, while Regina Pats' Ed Staniowski remains the busiest goalie having worked minutes. Winnipeg Clubs' Jerry Rollins is the penalty leader having spent 215 minutes in the cooler. Selects beaten MONTREAL (CP) Montreal Juniors of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, bolstered by six professionals from Nova Scotia Voyageurs, defeated Moscow Selects 4-3 Monday night in an exhibition game that saw three members of the Canadian team thrown out. The juniors won on the strength of a third-period' power-play goal by Jean-Luc Phaneuf at after the Soviets had drawn to a 3-3 tie on a pair of goals by forward Konstantin Klimov earlier in the period. The juniors had led 3-1 until KI'mov's first goal at of the final period. Peter Sullivan, along with Voyageur team-mate Ron Andruff, had scored for Montreal in the first period to offset a goal by Zelmut Balderis. Denis Daigle scored the only goal of the second period. Much of the Montreal vic- tory could be attributed to the goaltending of Dave Elenbaas of the Nova Scotia team from the American Hockey League. Elenbaas played superbly until he injured his left ankle at 1.40 of the final period. He was replaced by junior net- minder Andre Lepage, return- ed at the 13-minute mark, but was forced to give up less than two minutes later when the leg would not hold him. In addition to Elenbaas' strong performance, the Canadian team managed match the vaunted Soviets by constantly forechecking their more experienced opponents.
