Vancouver, Buffalo Poorer After Draft Montreal (CP) Buffalo' Sabres and Vancouver Canucks now are poorer and 20 players richer following Wednesday's National Hockey League expansion draft. The two new clubs were al- lowed to pick two goallcnders and 18 other players from the existing 12 teams, which were permitted to protect 17 players', including two goalies, each. I'm satisfied with the way It turned said Bud Poile, general manager of the Can- ucks. I think I got the best young goalie today in Dune Wilson. I think he's just as good as Ber- nie Parent was at the same stage." Punch Imlach, general mana- ger-coach of Buffalo Sabres said: "Happy? I have to be happy. "We have two veiy capable performers in Phil Goyette and Don Marshall. If we can get a few of the draft picks to score a few goals we'll move up in this business faster than you think." Buffalo had first pick in the draft and took forward Tom Webster from Boston Bruins. QUICKLY TRADED After the draft, Webster was dealt to Detroit Red Wings for goaltender Roger Crozier. Buf- falo also bought Ted Hodgson from New York Rangers after the draft was completed. Sabres draft picks from six existing East Division teams were: Paul Terbenche from Chicago, defenceman Jim Wat- son from Detroit, Marshall and defenceman Al Hamilton from New York and goaltender Farr and defenceman Francois Lacombe from Mont- real Canadiens. They did not choose a player from Toronto Maple Leafs. From the West Division. Buf- falo drafted: Goyetle, defence- man Chris Evans and goal- tender Edwards from St. Louis Blues, forwards Reg Fleming and Gerry Meehan of Philadel- phia Flyers, a trio of defence- Pratt, Mike Mc- Mahon and Doug Pittsburgh, forwards Brian Perry and Howie Menard from Oakland Seals, forwards Skip Krake and Craig Cameron from Los Angeles Kings and defence- man Jean-Guy Lagace from Minnesota North Stars. The Canucks grabbed def- enceman Gary Doak from Bos- ton Bruins as their first choice. Later they took Barry Wilkins, another Bruins rearguard. Other Vancouver choices from East Division clubs were: for- wards John Schella and Ralph Stewart from Montreal, for- wards Dan Johnson and Ron Ward and defenceman Pat Quinn from Toronto, defence- men Paul Popiel and Ed Ha- toum from Detroit, forward Or- land Kurtenbach from the Rangers and forwards Garth Rizzuto and Jim Wiste from Chicago. Vancouver choices from West Division clubs were: Goal- render Wilson and forward Rosaire Paiement from Phila- delphia, forward Bob Dffla- bough and veteran netminder Charlie Hodge from Oakland, defenceman Darryl Sly and for- ward Ray Cullen from Minne- sota, Los Angeles forward Mike Corrigan, and Wayne Maki of the Blues. Vancouver bought two players afler the draft-John Arbour, a defenceman from Pittsburgh and forward Andre Boudrias from St. Louis. Backed by a minor league championship club which won e v e r y thing in the Western Hockey League last season, the Canucks could have the mak- ings of a belter expansion (earn than those which Joined the NHL in 1987. "There are foiu' or five fel- lows frorfi the Western league who can play in the NHL, like Murray Hall and Ted Poile said. "We did what we had to do with what was said Imlach. In a trade Involving Minne- sota and Montreal, Canadiens sent right winger Bob Rousseau for Claude Larose to complete the deal which started Tuesday j diens in the intra-lcague draft. The Canadiens also received Minnesota's first draft choice in today's amateur draft while Minnesota got a second-round choice from Canadiens In ex- change.

Top Amateurs In The Country Up For Grabs MONTREAL (CP) The 14 National Hockey League clubs move today into the amateur draft in which they will pay a pocsible fee for the privi- lege of choosing the top junior tot shots in North America. Montreal Canadiens are in League clubs draft players from I group, said that a change In similar shape as they take the NHL, but in which the Na- j waiver rules governing players first-round choices of Oakland j tional League clubs are allowed j on the 18-man protected list o! Seals, Minnesota North to protect 37 players including a clubs is significant. and Pittsburgh Penguins, in ad-! m a x i m u m four goaltenders. The new agreement says that dition to their own. JEach player costs the drafting any player who two The already-weak Kings draft Wednesday's expansion draft to stock their new teams. Each club paid to enter the NHL for the coming season. They found their way barred to most of the top pros as each of the 12 existing clubs was allowed to protect 17 play- ers from the newcomers. First- year professionals were exempt. The price structure i that will likely send top junior prospects Gilbert Perreault of Montreal Canadiens and Dale Tallon of Toronto Marlboros to Buffalo and Vancouver was re- vised upwards from Wednesday night. Now the professional clubs will pay for each amateur cla'imed. plus an additional if the draftee signs a pro contract this season and bonus of if the player per- forms in 25 NHL games in the season. GOES TO TEAMS The new agreement Is a revi- sion of the current pro-amateur agreement between the NHL and the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association. The CAHA, in turn, funnels the funds it re- ceives back to the clubs which figured in the amateur's devel- opment. Buffalo's Punch Imlacn won the right lo the first choice in the amateur draft and has stated he will pick Perreault. Hi5 Vancouver counterpartr- general manager Bud said Wednesday night he is still undecided between Tallon, a dcfenceman-centre Poile needs at centre, or right winger Leach of Flin Flon Bombers of the Western Canada Hockey League. Perreault and Tallon are graduates of the Ontario Hockey Association's Junior A Series. From then on, the amateur draft becomes almost an exer- cise in futility for the two new clubs and many of the 12 others. For example, Buffalo, after its initial choice, picks 15th and ANDY CAPP 29th and Vancouver 16th and 30th. Boston Bruins, who won the Stanley Cup this spring for the first time in 29 years, control four draft choices in the first round, one of their own and those originally owned by Los Angeles Kings, Philadelphia Fryers and St. Louis Blues.
