Toronto lawyer who also repre- sents a number of NHL players in their contract discussions with club owners. "So I havs told Mr. (Doug) Fisher and Mr, (David) Kinnear that I will stay if they tliink I can help." Persistent rumors that Eagle- son clashed with business exec- ulive Allan Scott over distribu- tion of television rights were de- nied by Eagleson. "It has nothing to do with tel- 'isioo rights. "All I can say is that for wee years we have been a appy, co-operative group. And et, in the past few weeks, all hat has changed." He insisted that a disagree- ment with Scott, soon after tha Scott's recent ap- ointment to Die board, nly a misunderstanding. The new presiding committee, ormed in the wake of Hay's ill- ess, is made up of Fisher, Kin- ear, Scott and Hay's son, Bill, former NHL centre with Chi- ago Black Hawks. 31DN'T QUIT COMMITTEE Eagleson said the resignations e submitted, and later re- alled, were from the board and ot the steering committee set ip earlier this month to oversee lie Canada-Russia hockey se- ics. The committee consists of Ea- jleson, Kinnear, Charles Hay, ,ou Lefaive, Joe Kryscka and Bill Wirtz. "I had understood the steer- ng committee would be the op- erative regaled Eagle- son, "but we haven't had an- ither meeting since our first in Montreal early this month." Fisher, who served as chair- man of Wednesday's meeting, said the board's chief concern lad been "covering the gap, the fact Mr. Hay will not be able to continue his contribution of the past ZVi years." He said the organization would not consider naming an- other president until it learns U Hay's health improves with two months rest. WON'T CHANGE DATES Fisher, who also served as of- ficial spokesman after the meet- ing, said Russia had refused to change the opening dates of the four-game Canadian end of the series set for. Sept. 2, 4, 8 and 8, but allowed that because of un- foreseen accommodation prob- lems the series probably would open in Toronto rather than Montreal. Second game of the series would be in Montreal with Win- nipeg and Vancouver the host cities for games 3 and 4. The entire Russian portion of the se- ries, Sept. 22, 24, 25 and 28, will be in Moscow. Television coverage of the se- ries, both in Canada and in Rus- sia, is still being negotiated, Fisher confirmed, labelling ear- lier reports as premature. "The producer almost cer- tainly will be Hockey Night in Fisher said, "but the matter of sponsors is fluid.' Scott said negotiations with Russia on who gets paid for which games are slill to be con- cluded. "It is clear we own our four said Scott, "and that we'll supply them free to the Russians, and that they'll sup- ply their games free to us. "We know we can sell our games for U.S. television but it hasn't been decided if we can sell the games in Russia to U.S. television." Minor baseball Harvie Pocza was outstanding to fay the least, as he hurled no-hit ball for the regulation seven innings and blasted four home runs in the Angels 21-0 victory over the Wliite Sox Tuesday night.

Louis Levesque of Montreal, said Tuesday that although the horse will likely never race again, he should be worth at least as a sire.
