Players from the Slampeders were to become property of the two new teams but "before we could contact those players, Cadman had signed four, glad- ly paid the fine levied by the league president, kept the players and bought himself a Walls said. Cadman denied the charges saying "at no time did this league agree to give Canucks any assistance, and they never renuesled any." Walls also accused Cadman with tampering in the case of Ron Van Dyke and ex-Calgary dcfcnceman who was released by the Canucks Jan. 9, one day before the deadline. "We removed him from the active roster but vanted to keep him as an affiliate for use later this year or Walls said. "However vritliin 24 hours he was a Red Deer Rustler." "At a league meeting Jan. 29 the executive declared Van Dyke was still the property of the Canucks but the next day he played again with the Rust- lers." Cadman said Walls was mis- informed on the situation. "The motion passed at the meeting specifically said Van Dyke was to remain In Red Deer for the remainder of this season and then revert to the Canucks. If we wanted him next year we had to deal." Walls also took exception to a news release Jan. 30 in which Cadman was quoted as being a spokesman for Ihe league. "It's an incredible situation when one gay can upstage a whole league on one of the few occasions when it has an oppor- tunity to receive some publi- city." Cadman replied he "didn't know what Walls was crowing about and the Calgary news re- lease was somewhat of a grand- stand show in itself." "We were fined for things I said following the league meeting, but Walls remarks are much more serious as they la- bel the entire'league as bush." Walls also criticized Edmon- ton Maple Leafs for using an "ineligible player" dining 7-3 win over Canucks Sunday. "We were informed the play- er, Handy Smith, was ineligible because the league had not re- ceived proper notification of the player's release from the par- ent Edmonton Oil Kings prior lo the Jan. 10 signing dead- line."
