Tbe Red Wings, meanwhile, Munro claims Parent CALGARY (CP) Scotty Munro, general manager of the Calgary entry in the World Hockey Association, says Bcr- nie Parent is on his protected list and Miami Screaming Ea- gles' can not negotiate with him. Parent, goalie for Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League, was one of the four players Munro named when UK WHA teams nicked NHLers. This means that Par- ent is off limits to any other WHA team. Parent and his lawyer say that Miami has offered for him to jump to the WHA. "First, that fa ridi- said Munro. "It's a nice figure to throw around, but it's hogwash." "Second, if Miami is talking to him, and I doubt If they are because I just talked to the league office and they say it isn't so, it'll just mean extra money for us because of tam- pering." Munro said he had talked to Parent and his lawyer twice, but that money wasn't men- tioned. "I said I'd wait until after our draft before I talk money." are at home tonight to Lot An- geles Kings, last-place team in the West Division and a Detroit win and Toronto loss will drop tbe Leafs into fifth place.

Ivan Boldirev, Bobby Sheeban and Wayne Carleton scored for California with Boldirev'i goal, the only one the Seals needed, coming at of the first pe- riod on a short backhand abot. The goal came when Carleton nad tbe puck in the Leafs' zone and passed it to Paul Sbmyr at the right of Jacques Plante. To- ronto's goalie. Toronto cWeoeeman Brad Sel wood, who went to check Shnvyr, left Boldirev open and he took Shmyr's pass with bis back to tbe net. Soldi rev whirled and backhanded the puck past Plante.

Best McKee maintained hi; hot hand for the Liken as he Store Fischler's Inside Hockey WHEN National Hockey League coaches such a Freddie Glover and Sfcotty Bowman beef about "pampered" play- en they are only scratching the surface of what bas become a growing problem with most NHL teams; the inability to control skaters anymore. Discipline on. teams such as the St. Louis Blues, Boston Bruin and Los Angeles Kings hat become as obsolete aa the woolly mammoth. In mid-seatxm when duba should be boned to sharpness, they are flabby, uninterested and grossly out of shape. "I could not believe the Kings the last I saw them in Los said an NHL official. "They were In such lousy condition you would have thought It was August and not Even the triumphant Boston Bruins arc flabby and un- concerned. A Toronto journalist was amazed at how out-of- sbape coach Tom Johnson's club looked after a game In Maple Leaf Gardens, although Boston easily won tbe contest "The Bruins can get away with the newsman said, "because even when they're fat they're so much better than their opposition." Unfortunately, the St. Louis Blues can't get away with It. They are fat partly due to me overindulgence of owner Sid Salomon, Jr. and feeble. Try as he might, tbe Soviet Union's national hockey coach Anatoli Tarasov, couldn't be diplomatic one night recently after watching the Blues supposedly a major-league team virtually forfeit their game against the Hangers almost from the opening face-off. Tarasov was particularly piqued be- cause he had stopped off at Madison Square Garden, hoping to learn something more about NHL hockey. He did, but it was mostly all bad. "I saw one very good team (the Rangers) and one very ragged said Tarasov. But what angered him more than anything was the Blues' don't-give-a-damn attitude. "The Ca- nadian sportsmen on St. Louis are supposed to fight to the very end, but we didn't see the Blues do that." Unlike the pampered NHL players, Tarasov's Russians are welLdiscrpnned both on and off the Ice, and they plsy hockey ill the classic passing style of Bill and Bun Cook and Frank Boucher from the NHL past. Today's scrambly major league hockey infuriates Tarasov because he knows how good it could be, if played the way Lord Stanley of Preston, let alone Lester Patrick, had wanted It played. "NHL players are the greatest masters of says Tarasov, "but they play the game like primitives. The price of the puck has gone up. They don't control the puck enough." All of which gets us back to the issue, that some players just don't care anymore. The New York Rangers are an ex- ception. G.m.-coach Emile Francis has managed to run a tight ship and a well-conditioned team. To a certain degree, Sam Pollock's Canadiens have done likewise. But too many other clubs have adopted a "laissez faire" attitude where players are setting their own standards; and not very healthy ones at that. Single swingers on some NHL teams even have taken to flying their girlfriends into cities wJwa they're on the road, a practice that was unheard of during the competitive six-team NHL days. But expansion has changed all that. With 14 teams and two more on the way, pro hockey has become t players' market, and pity the poor coach who tries to play Simon Lcgree in 1972. canned 24 big points to lea the victory. Warren T.olle scored H for F. P. Walshe. Lauralie Nattrass scored nin points in the Milk River gals win.
