Vancouver Canucks, the other new NHL entry, and Buffalo are expected to finish with consider- ably less quality for considera- bly more money than their 1987 expansion predecessors. Each will pay for the privi- lege of bringing the NHL to a 14-team, twcMlivision league. The price is three times what it cost St. Louis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Oakland and Los Angeles for member- ship three years ago.

This time around each of the 12 clubs can protect 15 skate's plus two goaltenders. First-year professionals and all amateurs under 22 years of age Dec. 31, 1970, are exempt from the draft. Vancouver and Buffalo each will draft until they have ob- tained 18 skaters and two goalies. Maximum loss from each existing club will be three players and one goalie. Tuesday, the day before the expansion draft, the NHL will held its annual infra-league draft in which they protect 18 players with all goalies, first- year pros and amateurs under 22 years old Dec. 31, 1970 ex- empt.
