Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24-THE LETHBRIDOE HBBALD-iiturdiy, March Toronto Maple Leafs should be happy, but things are different By THE CANADIAN PRESS You'd think news of Buffalo Sabres' tie with Chicago Black Hawks Thursday night would have sent spirits soaring in Toronto, but rumors of team tension and dissention are trickling out of Maple Leaf Gardens. The Lea is seemed safely entrenched in the fourth playoff spot in the National Hockey League's East Division, and just one Toronto victory or one Buffalo defeat will make it mathematically certain. If the Leafs are on edge, one cause might be the fact that tourth place, while a distinct improvement over their sixth place finish last year, is something of a mixed blessing. The fourth place team has the privilege of meeting the powerful Boston Bruins, division champions, in the quarter-finals. Coach Red Kelly isn't denying the rumors outright. "Tension? Dissention? Well, we have been in a bit of a tense situation trying to clinch the playoff spot. It seems the club is loose when we win or tie, but not so loose after a loss. What's so unusual about Kelly was referring to the fact that the Leafs failed to clinch the playoff spot Wednesday night by dropping a 5-3 decision to Chicago Black Hawks. The Black Hawks left unhappiness in their wake Thursday as well; the Sabres needed an outright victory, not a tie, to keep their slender hopes alive. There was anger too; the Sabres howled when an apparent goal that would have won them the game was wiped out by the referee. Such tension is understandable, but the rumors out of Maple Leaf Gardens go beyond mere playoff jitters. Other causes appear to be contract negotiations and a lack of ice time for some key players. Says veteran centre Norm Ullman: "Sure I'm trying to workout a new contract. I try to put it out of my mind and concentrate on hockey but I suppose it can divide your attention." In addition, Ullman and linemates Ron Ellis and Paul Henderson, who are also on Dolphins offered plenty TORONTO (CP) Larry Csonka, Jim Kiick and Paul Warfield of the Super Bowl- champion Miami Dolphins conferred Friday with officials of Toronto Northmen, Canada's entry in the newly formed World Football League. John F. Bassett, president of the Northmen, said he is interested in the three "as a and it has been rumored he has offered the National Football League players million for five years. "That's in the ball was Bassett's comment about the offer. contract negotiations, were benched for segments of games on the team's West- Coast road trip last week. "I've heard claims that the season is catching up to me and I Ullman said. "I don't look on it that way. "At this stage of the season I want to play a regular shift to stay in good condition for the playoffs. I've been missing shifts and sometimes whole periods at a time when I want regular work. "Losing the edge is very easy at this stage of the season when you don't play regularly." Another Leaf attacker said Kelly's use of four forward lines, in an attempt to give his young players plenty of work to give him depth for the playoffs, throws the veteran regulars off their stride. "When we use four lines sometimes you don't get much he said. "And at this stage of the season, especially when the club is in a bit of a scoring slump, everyone wants plenty of ice time." AH-AHH!

(AP) Hank Aaron, on the threshold of the game's most-revered record, begins his 21st season in major league baseball Thursday at Cincinnati insisting there is no pressure on him. "I'm not the flashy-type ball player." Aaron said. "I've got to do it my way. I can't play under pressure. I think there's, been exaggerated talk about pressure. There just isn't any." The 40-year-old Atlanta Braves' slugger needs only two home runs to break Babe Ruth's lifetime record of 714; The Braves started a controversy last month by announcing that Aaron would be held out of the three-game opening series in Cincinnati so that he could take aim at the mark during an 11-game home stand beginning April 8 against Los Angeles Dodgers'. However, commissioner Bowie Kuhn ordered the Braves to start the famous slugger in at least two of the first three games. It is expected that Aaron may play in the opener and almost certainly in Saturday afternoon's clash slated for national television. The Monday night home opener also will be nationally. The Reds refused to get involved in the controversy and even though Aaron has more home-s against Cincinnati that any other club, 95, indications are that he might have a tough time. CMHA meeting organized The Coaldale Minor Hockey Association will hold annual meeting April 9. All interested persons are urged to attend the p.m... meeting which will be held at the Coaldale Sportsplex.
