NEW YORK (AP) With the National Hockey League season pausing for its all-star break, it seems an appropriate time to examine what the league's new divisional structure has done to the excitement of the race for the playoffs. Would destroyed be too strong a word? In past years, making the playoffs was the target of every NHL team. Those post season berths meant a shot at the Stanley Cup and that, after all, is what the hockey season always has been about. But expansion and dilution has left the league with some have-not clubs and with nearly half the season still left, their playoff hopes are long gone. The expansionist Kansas City Scouts and Washington Capitals couldn't have hoped for post season action in their first year. But, at the same time, they couldn't have expected to be this far away With this long to. go. The "Scouts have won only "nine of 44 games and are 21 points removed from third place the last playoff spot in the Smythe Division. The Caps haven't done quite that well, managing only three vic- tories in 46 games ar.-j struggl- ing along 33-points out of the final Stanley Cup berth in the Norris Division. Things aren't much better for Minnesota North Stars and Detroit Red Wings, the teams directly ahead of the Scouts and Caps in their division standings. Minnesota is 15 points away from third place and Detroit 14 back. That means that, barring monumental collapses by the top teams or stirring about- faces by the bottom clubs, six playoff spots are all but clinched Vancouver Canucks, Chicago Black Hawks and St. Louis Blues in the Smythe Division and Los Angeles Kings, Montreal Can- diens and Pittsburgh Penguins in the Norris Division. The same situation exists in the Adams Division where three of the four competing Earlier expansion planned by NHL? MONTREAL (CP) Denver and Seattle, scheduled to join the National Hockey League in the 1976-77 season, could enter earlier through, purchase of existing franchises, it was revealed Tuesday. Clarence Campbell, NHL president, said Tuesday night following a two-day meeting of the league's board of gover- nors that the entry of the two cities could come about if one or both purchased existing franchises. He said a meeting of the governors will be held in New York Feb. 1 for further study: "Both cities have buildings available Campbell said. "And I wouldn't be sur- prised to see them in the league next season." Campbell said the league could stay at 18 teams if Denver, which has expressed an interest in purchase of the league-owned California Golden Seals, made such a move. The league president would not designate a club that Seat- tle could buy, but it was learn- ed that the Pittsburgh Penguins franchise, which has received financial assistance from the league, could be the club involved. BOUGHT SEALS The NHL bought back the Seals franchise from owner Charles 0. Finley last season after refusing him permission to move the team out of the San Francisco Oakland area. "What we would like to do is keep the thing in Campbell .said, noting that it would be unfair for one of the newcomers to start off with an experienced team while the other would be forced to start from scratch. After the entry of Seattle and Denver, the NHL was set for further expansion in 1978 and 1980 to bring the total number of teams to 24. The governors also studied several suggestions from the players during a meeting of the owner player council. clubs make the playoffs. Buf- falo Sabres and Boston Bruins are cinches, 24 and 17 points ahead of third place Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs also appear well set 10 points better than California with three more games to play than the Seals. In the Patrick Division, Philadelphia Flyers seem safe, but New York Rangers, Atlanta Flames and New York Islanders are in a three- struggle for the other two spots. So -what we have, essen- tially, are 10 of the 12 playoff berths already decided. All three teams battling for the two remaining Patrick Divi- sion spots have better records than the third place clubs in divisions, whose battling is just about done. Baseball drops 20 of its 24 teams when it comes to playoff time with only division winners qualifying for post season play. The National Football League eliminates 18 of its 26 clubs at the conclu- sion of its regular season, allowing six division winners and two wild card teams with the best second place records into its playoffs. But, with 12 of its 18 teams qualifying for the playoffs, the NHL is playing an 80-game season to eliminate only one third of its clubs. That percentage will be go- ing down in 1976. No, the NHL won't be reducing the number of playoff berths. Instead, it will be adding two clubs, Denver and Seattle. Some people might call that subtraction by addition.
