Cal 22 29 51 37 Mikita, C 19 32 51 14 By AL COLLETT1 NEW YORK (CP) The National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA) said Monday it will not agree to any pre-season exhibition series with the World Hockey Association because the players feel it would be a first step towards a merger. Alan Eagleson, executive director of the NHLPA, said the players and himself have been kept in the dark on the terms of the proposed settlement between the NHL and WHA that would resolve out-of-court the more than million in antitrust lawsuits brought by the two-year-old WHA against the NHL. Eagleson and the NHLPA executive board-met with four NHL governors at La Guardia Airport to reconsider the exhibition series which the NHLPA first rejected two weeks ago in Chicago. The NHL players were represented by Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins, Syl Apps of Pittsburgh Penguins and Pit Martin of Chicago Black Hawks. The NHL governors were William Jennings of New York Rangers, Bruce Norris of Detroit Red Wings, William Wirtz of Chicago and Charles Mulcahy of Boston Eagleson said the NHLPA indicated to the owners that the players "were not prepared to adjust from our position on the exhibition games." Lawyers for the WHA and NHL were due to appear in the Philadelphia courtroom of Federal Judge A. Leon Higginbotham Thursday or Friday to give a progress report on their litigation problems. Eagleson said he did not want the lawyers to take into court the impression that the owners have settled the exhibition issue with the players. Esposito, in explaining the players' feelings on the matter, said they felt because the owners seemed to be "making a lot of fuss" over 15 exhibition games "there must be something more to it than that." "Until we, the players, find out exactly what it'is, we're not agreeing to anything at this time because we don't know that is going on. And that's the truth...." Eagleson said he had not seen any of the NHL or WHA proposals. "That is what disturbs us.... We haven't seen anything, we haven't heard anything, except what we heard in the media and press releases." The NHL owners and the WHA lawyers have refused to give the players' association a copy of the proposed settle- ment Eagleson said. Esposito said he hopes the meetings Thursday or Friday in Philadelphia will help clear the picture. "This is getting to be ridicu- added. Eagleson said after the meeting of ttie players in Chicago he drafted a letter to Judge Higginbotham stating the players' reasons for rejecting the exhibition games. "We also requested of the judge that we be given one month to review any proposed settlement until we could put on record with him our views on the subject. We have received no response in that regard but I would hope he would give us that opportunity so that we would have a chance to say what we don't like about this proposed settlement." Eagleson said, however, he felt an agreement will be reached between the NHL and WHA. "I'll be surprised if they don't finalize some settlement within the next week or 10 days.... Pilling scores four Baden Pilling blasted home four goals and carried the Lethbridge Kinsmen Warriors to a 10-8 victory over the Lethbridge Midget Elks in a Southern Alberta Juvenile League game at Henderson Sunday night. The big, chunky forward tallied twice in both the first and third periods which helped his teammates hold period scores of 4-2 and 64.
