MacGregor said he'd consider the trade until Thursday then talk with Francis when the Rangers visit Detroit. "I've played 10 years now and it's something to think replied MacGregor when asked about the possibility of retiring. In Larry Brown, the Rangers are reacquiring a young de- fenceman they thought highly of before letting him go to Detroit earlier in the season in a trade that sent centre Pete Stemk- owski to the Rangers from De- troit. Robitaille has been one of the Rangers' finest young prospects for several years but has had problems cracking the New York lineup. California Golden Seals, meanwhile, have indicated they won't trade off any more draft choices for experience. Fred Glover, coach and gen- eral manager, said Monday at a news conference the Seals have already parted with their first- round selections for 1971, 1972 and 1973 "but that is the last of it." Montreal Canadiens have ac- quired the Seals' first-round selections through 1973. In other NHL developments Monday, the Canadiens an- nounced that defenceman Serge Savard, who fractured his left leg against Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday night, will undergo a bone graft operation today. Team physician Dr. Douglas Kinnear said the bone graft will "ensure Savard's complete re- covery and return to his hockey career." The young defenceman frac- tured the same leg in five places last March and returned to the Canadiens' lineup Nov. 7. He was rounding into his earlier form when the most recent in- jury occurred. Chicago Black Hawks said Monday centre Lou Angotti will be lost for about three weeks with a slight fracture of the left ankle, suffered in Chicago's 4-1 win Montreal Sunday. And Philadelphia Flyers an- nounced the loan of left winger Earl Heiskala to San Diego Gulls of the Western League. Heiskala, 28, scored two goals and one assist in 30 games with the West Division club year.
