TORONTO (CP) The days of hockey's minor professional leagues are numbered, says the director of operations for the World Hockey Association. Bud Poile predicted in an interview that the WHA and National Hockey League will adopt Ike football practice of placing marginal players on taxi squads. "The days of major professional teams holding 40 to 50 players under contract are Poile said. "I think what it's coming to is a system like football's where each team will sign, say, 25 players. "Those not active on the big team will just skate around or be put in leagues that will accept them under immediate recall. Amateur teams will take the place of the-minor pro leagues today." The cost of operating minor professional leagues is soaring, Poile said. He said most of the teams in his league already have fewer than 30 players under contract, assigning players on an individual basis to teams in the North American and Southern Leagues. President Ed Chynoweth of the Western Canada Hockey League revealed Tuesday his league has proposed that the WHA pay development money for placing up to five over age juniors on WCHL teams. TWO HAT TRICKS Two Canadian Western Natural Gas Company players scored hat tricks to pace the Gas Company to an 8-5 triumph over City Packers in Lethbridge Industrial Hockey League action. Neil Bozak and Ross Allsop each had three goals while Greg Gibson and Don Dietzen added singles for the winners. Sam Sirovyak, with two, Wally Hild, Bill Handsell, and Don Bkyksa had the City Packers' goals. Thunday, February 13, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 All 12 teams in playoffs? EDMONTON (CP) Com- missioner Ed Chynoweth says the possibility exists that the Western Canada Hockey League may include all 12 teams in the playoffs this year. "Right now it's a bit Chynoweth said in a telephone interview, "but yes, we w'" discuss it at a league meeting this month." "It actually comes up every year whether intended or WCHL president denies charges SASKATOON (CP) The president of the Western Canada Hockey League has denied charges by an Ontario Hockey Association official that the WCHL is breaking ex- isting agreements. WCHL president Ed Chynoweth said Wednesday he was "amazed and surprised" at comments by Clarence Schmalz, commissioner of the OHA's major junior A series. Schmalz, when informed that Chynoweth said that the WCHL has presented a proposal to the World Hockey Association that would see the WHA pay development money to WCHL teams who keep over-age juniors on their roster, accused Chynoweth of making "little side deals behind his partners' backs." However, the last time I proposed a meeting to NHL president Clarence Campbell, he informed me that as soon as the NHL was in a position to discuss what we in Western Canada feel is our problem, he would get in touch with me." Chynoweth explained that Ben Hatskin, chairman of the WHA board, asked the WCHL to submit a proposal to the WHA "and this is exactly what we have done." "The proposal is based on numerous conditions and number one is that it basically is a proposal for professional hockey if they so desire, and secondly it is our hope that if the proposal is accepted that both Ontario and Quebec would be included if they so desired. brought up by those who are going to miss the playoffs. The existing playoff schedule calls for the par- ticipation of eight teams, four each from the Eastern and Western divisions. Chynoweth said the motion to change the playoff struc- ture would require a two thirds majority. "It's written into our con- stitution that way and we'd be firm about it." Chynoweth 'said several teams in the league are fighting for financial survival and "for some teams getting into the playoffs might mean their continued existence in the league." The advantage of a 12-team playoff system, he said, would be "the possible establish- ment of an emergency fund to help out needy teams in the future." "If the format change goes through, the league would siphon off some of the playoff receipts for a reserve account in the future." Chynoweth said it probably wouldn't be too tough to sell fans on the new setup. "Playoffs are a new ball game to him and you can count on, say, fans who've never been to a regular season game to be on hand at a playoff game." vMWHt V -u.
