General' manager Bill Hunter issued warnings 'of dire consequences to malingering Oilers on Tuesday, but his hockey club still dropped a 4-3 decision to Toronto Toros, who occupy second place in the Canadian Division. The Oilers are 10 points be- hind the Toros. A win would have left them only six points behind with seven games in hand. In Tuesday's other games, Houston Aeros downed Balti- more Blades 5-2 and San Diego Mariners walloped Hunter denies reports TORONTO (CP) General manager Bill Hunter of Edmonton Oilers has denied reports that the World Hockey Association teams intends to sue players who fail to live up to a contract clause, calling for them to perform to the best of their ability. "We will will never take court action against any Hunter said in an interview between periods of a WHA game with Toronto Toros. If anything, players could take court action against the club if it attempted to sue them, Hunter said. Reports that directors of the Oilers have agreed to sue lackadaisical players were published in Tuesday's editions of the Edmonton Journal, The Journal also quoted Hunter as saying that in addi- tion to law suits, players will face suspension without pay if they don't live up to their con- tract. Journal reporter Wayne Overland quoted Hunter as saying: "Our directors and fans are sick and fed up with the atti- tude and performance of some players who are dragging the entire franchise down. "I'm no miracle man. I can't trade some of them, so we have agreed to take other more drastic action." Hunter said the team has made it known to the players that those not willing to per- form to the best of their abili- ty will be suspended. "I'm not going to put up with lethargic performances by any said Hunter. "No one has a right to steal." In Edmonton, Oiler presi- dent Zane Feldman also denied the published reports about threatened suits. Quebec Nordiques 9-2. A game between Indianapolis Racers and the Cougars at Chicago was re-scheduled for Feb. 17. Wayne Overland reported in Tuesday's Edmonton Journal that the club's directors had agreed to sue lethargic players for failing to live up to a section calling them to per- form up to the best of their ability. Hunter denied the Overland story but said the team has made it known to the players that those not willing to per- form to the best of their abili- ty will be suspended. "I'm not going to put up with lethargic performances by any said Hunter. "No one has a right to steal." 'Hunter's action didn't get much support from Toronto coach Bob Leduc after the game. "I don't think you can threaten hockey players said Leduc. "He was just trying to get his guys up for the game but that can work against you and players today will say to hell with you. "Those days are long gone can discipline a player by threatening him with a suspension or fine." The Oilers had a bad mo- ment in the second period when goaltender Jacques Plante took five minutes to get up after a collision with Toronto forward Pat Hickey. Plante finished the game, tak- ing two aspirin between the second and third periods to fight a headache. A Torbnto crowd of fans saw Brian Gibbons, Frank Mahovlich and Paul Henderson score second- period goals to give Toronto a 4-2 lead. Defenceman Barry Long scored twice for- the Oilers. The Howe Gordie and sons Mark and paced the Aeros, picking up seven points. Mark had a goal and three assists, Gordy registered a goal and an assist and Marty also assisted on a goal. The Aeros now have won 18 games on the road, including their last five in a row. San Diego's Andre Lacroix extended his scoring streak to 15 games, one short of the WHA record, with two goals and two assists against the Nordiques. San Diego moved into third place in the Western Division with the victory.
