Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wadntsday, March 10,1971 Attempt made to clear league of commitments Three bid to purchase troubled Pittsburgh club NEW YORK (CP) - An offer to purchase the Pittsburgh Penguins franchise and get the National Hockey League out of its unwanted role as supervisor of the cluh's fiscal affairs was accepted for study Tuesday by the NHL governors. Acceptance or rejection of the bid made by three Detroit men and Management Control Corp. of East Liverpool, Ohio, may come within 15 days, NHL president Clarence Campbell indicated. The decision will be made by telegraph vote or a special meeting of the governors. The governors also referred to the general managers' committee, for a recommendation before June, a three-way proposal for strengthening the rosters of such members as Cali- fornia Golden Seals and Los Angeles Kings. The proposals are: Restrictions on the right of any team to trade away its future draft choices; a decrease in the number of players that may be protected in the intra-league draft, and the development of a formula by which teams rich in talent may make players available to the "have-not" teams for substantial cash payments. The idea of restricting draft-choice deals appeared to have andy capp SORRY I'M LATE, ASW, I 'Ab TO VISITA FRIENb OF MINE IN'OSPITAL- Kings upset St Louis Rookie Byers gets help Mike Byers, whose only previous 20-goal season as a pro was with three teams in 1967-68, hit the magic mark again Tuesday night with the help of Garry Unger. Byers, getting his first real shot at the National Hockey League, scored twice as Los Angeles upset St. Louis Blues 4-0 while Vancouver Canucks skated to a 3-3 tie with Montreal Canadiens in the only other league action. Tonight the Canadiens visit Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston's Fhil Esposito and Bobby Orr go after single season goal-scoring marks when the Bruins meet California Golden Seals at Oakland, Chicago Black Hawks entertain New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers visit Pittsburgh Penguins and St. Louis plays Minnesota North Stars. Byers, a 24-year-old Toronto native who was developed in the Maple Leaf system until he was traded to Philadelphia in 1969, scored No. 19 in the second period to give the Kings a 2-0 lead. No. 20 for the rookie was at Unger's expense when the St. Louis centre, attempting to block a Byers shot, carried the puck into the Blues goal past a startled goalie Glenn Hall. Byers, who turned pro in 1967, saw only limited action with Toronto and divided most of his time in the vast minor-pro system the Leafs had at that time. He scored only two goals in 10 games with the parent club but added 14 at Tulsa in the Central League and seven more with R o c h e s t e r of the American League. He was acquired by the Kings in an off-season trade with Philadelphia. The loss kept St. Louis, second in the West Division, 22 points behind leading Chicago. Rookie Danny Johnson scored his ninth of the year early in the third period to pull the Canucks even at Montreal. Earlier goals by rugged Rosaire Paiement had kept the Vancouver club in the game after Yvan Cournoyer, John Ferguson and Bob Shee-han had staked the Canadiens to a 3-1 lead. Esposito and Orr are one goal shy of equalling single season goal-scoring marks. Esposito has 57 goals, a record for centremen but one away from the record 58 set by Chicago's Bobby Hull in 1968-69. Orr's 32 goals are just one fewer than his record 33 of last year- ^ MONTREAL I VANCOUVER J First Period - 1. Montreal, Cournoyer 30 (Ferguson) 0:32; 1.

Bruce Besplug, Jeff Ennis and Darren Ramage each scored once and Mark Tokariuk proved unbeatable as the Tigers blanked the Totems 3-0 in Pee Wee action.

Lyle Vogel, Trevor Kinsey and Byron Lee scored for the Eskimos while John Milroy, George Irvine and Bob Spitzer replied for the Ti-Cats. been spurred by the last-place Seals' action in trading their top choice in the amateur draft to Montreal Canadiens for immediate player help. The offer under consideration for the Pittsburgh franchise came from brothers James E. and William E. Fuller and James Stirling, all of Detroit, and Management Control Corp., headed by William Blair, which has its headquarters in East Liverpool, 30 miles from Pittsburgh. C- ..npbell, who disclosed almost a dozen other bids also had been received, described this one as a "takeout offer"- meaning the purchasers would assume the Penguins' net liabilities of about $5.2 million. It also meets the NHL's stipulation that the franchise remain in Pittsburgh. "We don't believe in carpet-bagging franchises," said the league president. "We have turned down all offers involving any move of the franchise." The proposed deal has an unusual codicil-that Tom Cousins, sports impresario in Atlanta, Ga., be given right of first refusal of an NHL franchise when and if there is another round of expansion. ARENA STARTED Cousins, owner of Atlanta Hawks basketball team, has started construction of an ultramodern sports arena in Atlanta and wants a hockey franchise. In the meantime he has agreed to help finance the Fuller-Stir-ling-Bkir purchase at Pittsburgh. Campbell said there is "no possibility" of further NHL expansion before 1973-74. Cousins would bave to pay whatever price and accept whatever terms are set for the next expansion round, and give up- his financial interest in the Pittsburgh franchise when awarded an Atlanta franchise. The proposals for strengthening the weaker teams appeared headed for a rough time. "I don't object to anyone getting help, but I want to study carefully how it is done," said Wren Blair, general manager of Minnesota North Stars. He indicated there is some feeling that the other teams created by expansion in 1967 should not be penalized because they drafted players more astutely or made better deals than did the Oakland and Los Angeles franchises. Campbell acknowledged to reporters there might be difficulty in deciding which teams should sell players and which be given the right to buy for cash. "But the clubs must face the issue of self-interest in getting people to attend games," he said. He said the newest expansion teams, Vancouver and Buffalo, still have special draft privileges, and did not include them in the "have-not" category. The president said over-all league attendance has been excellent, but that Oakland is a real trouble spot, with an attendance average of about 6,000. "I think improvement of the Oakland situation depends on improvement in player and management personnel." He said he had several times urged Charles O. Finley, the baseball man who owns the Golden Seals, to strengthen his front office. Pittsburgh attendance has increased 58 per cent over last year, putting the club in the black but not providing enough income to retire its debts, said Campbell. Jack Riley, acting president of the Penguins, said attendance is up 100,000 this year in the 12,580-seat Civic Arena. The league president had these comments on other hockey topics: -"Organ music is a distinct asset at a hockey game-as long as it is played at a proper volume and not when play is in progress." -"I think the refereeing has improved considerably over-all. However we do not have any super-referees as we once did . .. such as Bill Chadwick." He also acknowledged that the league is making a conscious effort to hire bigger men as ice officials, "for the psychological advantage."

Argonauts are hopeful TORONTO (CP) - Leo Cahill still holds some hope of hiring Russ Jackson now mat his first choice for a new Toronto Argonauts quarterback has been signed by Miami Dolphins. Cahill had hoped he could lure Notre Dame quarterback Joe Theissman to the Canadian Football League but the Argo coach had to scratch the name from his list of hopefuls after Thiessman signed with the National Football League Dolphins Monday. But Cahill says he still is negotiating with a couple of other United States college prospects who might be able to take the quarterback job from last year regulars Tom Wilkinson and Don Jonas. q^.^. �. �- ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCOR NATIONAL Boston New York Montreal ..
