Meetings open today in Montreal Stanley Cup playoffs to change? MONTREAL (CP) - A new format for the Stanley Cup playoffs is expected to be a major topic at this week's National Hockey League's annual meet- The four-day annual meetings wind up Thursday. Last season, the NHL adopted a system where the East and West Division semi-finalists crossed over, thus paving the way for an all-East or all-West division playoff. Prior to the 1970-71 season there was no cross-over, therefore a then-weaker West Division contested the final series against a member of the East Division. It now Is proposed tint while the current cross-over formula remain, divisional pairings for the playoffs be changed. Under the present setup, the first and third teams and the second and fourth in each division play each other in the quarter-final round. The proposal would match the first and fourth and second and third teams in each division in quarter-final matches, with the inter-divisional cross-over remaining for the semi-finals. Also to be discussed by the governors is whether to increase the remuneration given annually for the Stanley Cup playoffs, final standings, trophy winners and selection to the league's all-star teams. Individuals on winning teams in the Stanley Cup quarter-fr oals and semi-finals get $2,250 for each round with the losers in these rounds getting $1,500. Individuals on Stanley Cup winning clubs get $3,000 each with the losers each getting $1,500. Each player on the team finishing first in regular-season NHL competition in its own division gets $2,500. Second is worth $1,250, third $750 and fourth $500. The board of governors will also have to decide whether or net to back NHL president Clarence Campbell in enforcing the powers they gave him to fine clubs whose players leave their benches to engage in mass on* ice fistic outbreaks, IMPOSED FINES Campbell slapped a $1,000 fine on Boston Bruins for their part in a late-season melee and tagged Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers with the maximum $5,000 sentence for a bench-clearing affair during their quarter-final playoff. Both the Leafs and Bruins bave balked at paying the fines and according to the meeting agenda, the governors have been asked to hear and consider the appeals of the two clubs. The regular drafting sessions will be held, starting with today's inter-league draft. In this draft, the NHL teams draw players from their Western and American Hockey League counterparts. Following this session, the 14 NHL teams will file their pro- Kryczka, Hay agree Invitation rejected TORONTO (CP) - Canadian hockey officials Friday rejected an invitation to return to international hockey on a limited basis. Joseph Kryczka, president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, said a decision against returning to international competition was made because "Canada still can't use its best players in world tournaments." Kryczka and Charles Hay, president of Hockey Canada, made the announcement after a meeting with John (Bunny) Ahearne, president of the Inter national Ice Hockey Federation. Ahearne proposed a federation-sanctioned plan to permit a Canadian team, which could include professionals, to play a series of fall exhibition games pgainst European teams, and enter a team of amateur and reinstated professionals In the B NOTICE TO ALL ELK MEMBERS FINAL NOMINATION AND ELECTION OF OFFICERS Will U HB.D MONDAY, JUNE 7th 8 p.m. LODGE ROOM ATTEND THI MOST IMPORTANT MEETING OP THI YEAR. Refreshments and Food will be served after meeting pool of the world championship tournament next spring. Hay said Canada's counterproposal was for a round-robin tournament against Russia, Czechoslovakia and Sweden in Canada this fall, with Canada using pros, but Ahearne turned the proposal down. The Ahearne plan called for a visit by Swedish and Russian teams to Canada in September, with the Canadian team going to Sweden, Russia and Czechoslovakia in December. For the series in Canada and the return games in Sweden and Czechoslovakia, Canada would have been permitted to use pro* fessionals for the Russian tour. Hay called that part of the Ahearne proposal "a casual series of exhibition games." Canada would bave had to win the B pool of the world championships in 1972 to advance to the A pool and competition against Russia, Sweden and Czechoslovakia in 1973. Earl Dawson, immediate past president of the CAHA, said the Ahearne proposal would put Canada in position "to be humiliated once again when the championships were on the line, because we'd be using second-rate players." Ahearne said Canada was reneging on an agreement made lost year. "If those games don't come off it's strictly Canada's fault I'm tired of being the fall guy; I've been the fall guy for the past two years."

Each team is allowed to protect 18 players and two goal-tenders. The teams draft in reverse order of finish in the 1970-71 standings, which means that California Golden Seals will have the No. 1 pick.

Monday, June 7, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 7 It was like old times for Los Angeles Dodgers By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS It seemed like old times for Richie Allen and Los Angeles Dodgers until Bill Russell came off the bench to show them all some new tricks. Sandy Koufax fired fastballs, Duke Snider swung from the heels, a bird flew out of Casey Stengel's cap and Alien made himself disappear during the Dodgers' Oldtimers Day festivities Sunday. Then Russell, a last-minute replacement for the elusive Allen in the Los Angeles cleanup spot, smacked a single, double and triple to lead the Dodgers past New York Mots 4-3. In other National League action, San Francisco Giants dropped their doubleheader opener to Philadelphia Phillies 1-0 but won the nightcap 4-3 on Willie Mays' 12th inning homer, Pittsburgh Pirates outslugged Houston Astros 9-8, Cincinnati Reds toppled St. Louis Cardinals 4-2, Chicago Cubs downed Atlanta Braves 6-3 and San Diego Padres swept a twin bill from Montreal Expos 84) and In Saturday's action, St. Louis defeated Cincinnati 5-3, Mont-zeal nipped San Diego 2-1, Philadelphia downed San Francisco 3-3, Houston tripped Pittsburgh 4-1, Atlanta beat Chicago 6-4 and Los Angeles blanked New York 34). ALLEN MISSING Allen, whose AWOL antics during his stormy days with the Phillies made headlines, was chatting with a friend in the Los Angeles clubhouse area while the Dodger Oldtimers went through their paces in a three-inning game. When the Dodgers took the field for the regular game, their controversial slugger still was missing. Manager Walter Alston hastily scratched Allen's name from the lineup and sent light-hitting Russell to the outfield. "The rule says you bave to have nine men on the field," Alston said later. "With all the oldtimers running around, back and forth, we had a hard time corralling eight guys. We just didn't see Rich. "It looked a lot worse than what it was. It was non-intentional and unavoidable. It could have happened to anyone." The happening made Russell a No. 4 hitter for the first time in his major league career. And be made the most of it, keying a three-run rally with his fourth inning double and knocking in what proved to be the winning run with his triple in the fifth. FLOORS METS Russell floored the Mets after the Oldtimers dazzled a crowd of 48,227 which turned out for Dodger Stadium's 10th anniversary festivities. Stengel, who doffed his cap and sent a sparrow aloft during a rhubarb at Brooklyn's Ebbets Field 52 years ago, repeated the stunt But this time, a pigeon took flight from Casey's bead-gear. "That's inflation," shrugged Stengel Philadelphia extended the Giants' string to five consecutive setbacks in their double- header opener as Rick Wise tossed a three-hitter and Ron Stone delivered the only run with a sixth inning single off Steve Stone. It was the first shutout loss of the season for San Francisco. The Giants rebounded in the second game as Mays stroked a double to touch off a tying two- run raSy in the ninth and then broke the deadlock in the 12th with bis Mist career homer- and 13th this year. Dave Cash's first homer of the season, a bases-empty blast in the eighth, carried the Pirates past Houston and within one-half game of firstplaoe St Louis in the East Skidding Sox in second spot By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Jim Fregosi, California Angels' veteran shortstop hobbled by a foot injury most of the season, was a key man in Sunday's 5-2 victory over Boston that extended the Red Sox skid to seven defeats in nine games and left them 1*4 games behind Baltimore Orioles in the American League East Division. Fregosi, who fielded brilliantly in California's 3-2 triumph Saturday, socked his third homer Sunday and later singled and scored the Angels' second run as they pinned Sonny Siebert with his second straight setback after he won bis first nine decisions. "When he plays, he glues us together," said manager Lefty Phillips. "He's a helluva competitor."

"Right now I'd have to aay this will be my last year in baseball." "There are some considerations that might change my mind," be added. "Let's aay I'm traded to a club that might win the next four years-then I might reconsider."

The Orioles unleased a 1-2 punch on the first two pitches thrown by Milwaukee's Marty Pattm in the seventh inning and came from behind to beat the Brewers and run their winning streak to five games. Pattin'a bases-loaded double had given the Brewers a 2-1 lead in the sixth but Frank Robinson, who had homered in the fourth, connected again on pitch No. 1 to tie the score and Ellie Hendricks tent pitch No. 2 to the same fate.
