MONTREAL (CP) If Jake Gaudar's view count for any- thing then Ihe Canadian Foot- ball League will remain Cana- dian. Ihe CFL commissioner said again Tuesday night, as he has I done many times belore, that he is opposed lo a bid from million- aire Robert Schmerlz to have a CFL team based in New York's Yankee Stadium. Gut I'm just an employee of Ihe Gaudaur told rc- porlers. "I'm not sure my views will count for anything." Gaudaur, along with the own- ers and general managers of the nira CFL learns, are in Montreal for the league's an- nual meeting. The general managers spent Tuesday picking off 70 players in nine rounds of this year's draft of Canadian college play- ers. They'll meet loday to out- line routine recommendations on scheduling and import quo- tas, but the big day is Thursday when Ihe CFL executive is ex- pected to decide on expansion. Grey Cup sites, imports and proposals from the CFL Players Association. Reporters caught up wilh Gaudaur after the college draft Tuesday and he wasted no time tearing apart the New York franchise bid. He started out by saying he had simply collected the pros and cons of Ihe bid lor the own- ers to consider at the meeting. He added that "you just couldn't find a more desirable group than the Schmertz peo- ple." Then he said: "I'm sure Echmerlz is smart enough to know what it takes lo draw in New York. It lakes something like Joe Namalli. "He's gol money enough lo go out and hire 10 Joe Namalhs. And I'm sure that's just what he'd do. "Now I ask you, how is Rc- gina going to compete with that?

Drop Red Wings into fiflh place. Leafs5 perseverance pays By THE CANADIAN PRESS Toronto Maple Leafs have been having their problems in the NalioiKil Iloekey League but at least they keep trying and their perseverance has been paying off. The Leafs were up to their usual standard of marksman- ship in St. Louis Tuesday night, Ixmncing pucks off the Blues goalposts while falling behind 1-0. Bill, not unlike their perform- ance in New York Sunday when Ihey came back to tie the Rangers 2-2, the Leafs kept plugging and wound up with a 2-1 win on goal? by Rick Kehoe and Paul Henderson late in the third period. In the cnly other game Tues- day, Philadelphia Flyers downed Vancouver Canucks 3-] to move to within one point ol the fourth-place Blues in the Division. Tiie Leafs' victory t them back into fourth spot in the East, one point ahead of the idle Detroit Red Wings. Toronto could increase the margin to- night when they play host to Pittsburgh Penguins. The Red Wings remain idle until Thurs- day. In other games tonight, Chi- cago Black Hawks visit New York, Philadelphia meets the Golden Seals in Oakland and Los Angeles Kings visit Minne- sota North Stars. Centre Danny O'Shea had just arrived in St. Louis after a Tuesday trade saw the Blues claim him from Chicago in ex- change for Chris Dordeleau. O'Shea set out immediately to please his new employers by scoring for the Blues in the sec- ond period and he was one ol the outstanding players in Blues uniform as he toiled on a line between wingers Phil Rob- erto and Brian Lavender. St. Louis goalie Jacques, Caron played a strong game in the first two periods although Ihc goalposts helped him on shots by Leaf centres Dave Keon, Norm TJllman and Jim Harrison. But Caron emerged as the goat when he was caught out ol position late in the third period, providing Kehoe an easy shol PHILADELPHIA 3 VANCOUVER 1 First Period 1.
