seven lean years are over for George (Punch) imlach Having survived a serious heart attack and a gall blad- der operation, not to mention the agonies of building a Na- tional Hockey League ex- pansion team into a con- tender., the general manager of Buffalo Sabres is a happy man The club he started from nothing in 1971 is leading the Adams Division of the NHL over Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs and California Seals He is seriously dreaming of a Stanley Cup for the first time since 1967 when, as gen- eral manager and coach, he piloted Toronto to victory- one of four cups won by the Leafs in the 11 years he coach- ed them "The best part of it is that I get to watch Gilbert Perreault play every said Im- lach Never afraid to express controversial opinions, Imlach talks in superlatives about Perreault, the centre he drafted first when he began to put the Sabres together in 1971 'I can safely say Perreault is the best player in the busi- ness Of course, I don't see Bobby Orr every game but I know one wouldn't trade Perreault for Orr now 'Perreault can break a game open at any time, and I find myself talking about this spectacular move or that su- per goal He's the big man, but we're winning because of the depth of the talent we have, plus hard work and dis- cipline "Maybe we re not the best team in hockey but we re the best atti action now Just look at our forward lines Perreault centres the French Connection with Rick Martin and Rene Robert and all three have scored more than 20 goals Don Luce centres the check- ing line, with Craig Ramsay and rookie Danny Gare and there are the Kamikaze Lorentz Rick Dud- ley and Spinner have a knack of upsetting their opponents They're a perfect third line because they roar around the other team's end and tire them out Imlach said Imlach also has acquired, by astute trading and selec- tion, a defence that fits his pattern Jim Schoenfeld, Lany Carnere, Bill Hajt, Jerry Korab, Lee Fogohn and Jocplyn Guevremont are all Ron Hunt extends his record Each passing year brings a deeper appreciation R of the pleasant association and loyal friendships 5 acquit ed in the course of business.

health He suffered a heart attack in 1972 and turned coaching duties at Buffalo ovei to his longtime friend Joe Crozier "I'm fine really and I want to keep it that way, but nothing has changed much in the way I live I'm careful to get plenty of rest and avoid being tired Imlach's relationship with CroEier soured last season and Crozier moved to Vancouver Blazers of the World Hockej Association as general manager Imlach prefers not to discuss their falling out We were friends too long for me to bath-mouth him His present coach is Flovd Smith who played for Imlach at Toronto 'Smith is a winner, a guy the players respond to and work for he Smitt> has complete control of the team Imlach still tends to use such words as we and us' when talking about the Leafs the club that fired him after being
