When the occasion de- the 22-year-old defen- ceman is as bold a belter as you'll find anywhere in the National Hockey League.

The Swedes didn't consider hockey a contact sport. did the Leafs latch on to Salming and coun- tryman Ingo Hammarstromv Toronto sent scout Gerry NcMamara to Sweden last year to check on several pros- pects and was so impressed with the two nationals he phoned general manager Jim Gregory in the middle of the night to make sure they were added to Leafs' negotiation 'list. Chief scout Bob Davidson confirmed McNamara's selec- tion when he viewed the two at the world championships in March. Thommie Bergman was the first European to move to the signing with Detroit Red Wings last season. While the Swedish defenceman hasn't been an overwhelming the experiment spurred other NHL clubs to look to the continent. Sabres are still negotiating to import-another Swedish Thommy but un- der an agreement with the International Ice Hockey Federation can't work out the necessary financial problems. Toronto paid the Swedish national hockey organization an estimated to get Salming and and its already beginning to look like a bargain.

Although the Bombers fin- ished last in the Western Foot- ball Conference with four wins and a tie in 16 Spavital said in an interview he felt his firing was unjustified. I don't feel it was justi- fied after the job I did brought the club from last place to first place. vTnen we came up with this season but we had injuries and other problems and it. wasn't all it was General manager Earl Lun- who has known Spavital since high school an- nounced the decision at a news conference. In announcing the decision. Lunsford said the board of di- rectors felt there was some- thing in some of his coaching abilities. The decision to release Spa- who had one year re- maining on a two-year was not totally unex- pected. With the Bombers slumping badly most of the season after finishing first in rumors began cir- culating in the final weeks of the schedule. Spavital says his job would have been much easier if the club had supplied adequateVe- placements for three all-stars lost during the Lineman Bob Luck who and wide receiver Jim Thorpe and the Canadian Football League's top rusher of Mack who were dropped from the roster after being arrested on drug charges. they took those two players and away from me I had no say.

Spavital joined the Bombers as head coach in late 1969 and took the team from its last- place finish in 1970 to the top of the Western Conference in 1972. He is the second coach to de- part from the club since the season ended. Offensive line coach Leroy Montgomery re- signed immediately after the Bombers last game of the sea- son.
