Imlach had experienced hands in Johnny Bower and George Armstrong, then whccled-ancl-dealed for the servi- ces of oldtimers Terry Saw- chuk, Allan Stanley, Marcel Pronovost, Bert Olmstead, Andy Bathgate and Red Kelly, while amassing four Stanley Cups for Toronto. When Imlach took over Buf- falo Sabres last May, he quickly fortified the expansion team with aging stars such as Don Marshall, Phil Goyette, Roger Crozier, Floyd Smith and Jean- Guy Talbol. Three weeks ago, with the Sabres see-sawing between the last two spots in the East Divi- sion standings, Imlach decided more age and experience was needed. Eddie Shack and Dick Duff, both of whom played right wi for Imlach at Toronto, were o tained by the Sabres from L Angeles Kings for defencem Mike McMahon and future co siderations.

Roger Crozier and Joe Daley turned back 20 drives for the Sabres.
