Hull, who recently signed as playing coach with Winnipeg Jets of the WHA, said that since the new league came into exist- ence, "the players have been able to bargain for themselves." "The National Hockey League has really been the only place to play. The owners have known It and I'm sure t hat If they wanted to put the screws to somebody they could just make a few phone calls and say: "Look this guy, we've got to teach him a lesson. Don't anyone touch him and he'll come crawling." "It's given them bargaining power which they never had be- fore." Hull, here on a promotional tour and golf tournament for an auto company, said he was first approached by Winnipeg Jets owner Ben Hatskin In Vancou- ver around Grey Cup time. "He made a legitimate offer for me to sign with the Winni- peg Jets for million for 10 years." The 33-year-old left winger said he declined the offer at the time because he was under contract with the NHL Black 14 players under contract Oilers sign players EDMONTON (CP) Alberta Oilers signed tour players today, including two defence- men who -will round out the World Hockey Association team's blucline crew.

Asked what he mil do with seven defencemen, Bill Hunter, general manager of the Oilers, said he probably will carry them all although Cote may end up playing wing. Bob McAnaeeley, who played as a junior with the Oil Kings and spent the last two years with University of British Col- u m b i a Thunderbirds of the Western Canada Intercollegiate League, was signed today. The 21-year-old left winger led the WCIAA in scoring with 29 goals last season and 30 in 1970- 71.

Last week he signed a five- year ?3 million contract to leave Chicago and play with the Jets. He said he had been given clearance by the Jets to play for Canada in the Canada-Rus- sia series this fall. He said he talked with na- tional team coach Harry Sinden and "he wants me to play with them." Hull said It Is an important thing for all individuals playing in the NHL and for all Canadi ans, "aud I want to be a part of it" ARRANGEJIENTS MADE He said arrangements had been made with Sinden to ena- ble him to return to his job with the Jets between the two four, game in Canada and the other in Russia. Hull said the Black Hawks "didn't take that much interest In trying to sign me so it wasn't much of a problem for me to make a decision. They never made an offer to me until week before I signed with Win- nipeg." Other established players, "some very influential players In the National Hockey have expressed inter- est in the new 10-leam league. "It's made quite a differ- ence at contract time." "We've talked to guys that have been offered in the neigh- borhood of with NHL clubs and when we started to offer them and so on, they've gone to the National League Clubs and said: 'Look, if you don't want to give me this contract, I know where I can get it.' "Right away the National League signs them." EXCITING HOCKEY Hull said WHA fans can look for fast, exciting offensive hockey, with balanced teams. "Every club has two, or four, real tine hockey players, proven hockey players. And who knows, we may have some diamonds In the rough with these kids that have come from the junior leagues, and guys that haven't had n chance to play In the National League." "We'll stress offensive hockey, lots of action, lols of shooting, lots of goal scoring and lots of hilling. It'll be real good hockey fur people to watch."
