Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ___ Mtef, NewiAtr tT, WI TW BTHBKJDOT HWAIO Flames climb ladder Last laugh for MacMillan? By IAN MacLAlNE Canadian Press Staff Writer Billy MacMillan may yet have the final laugh on Toronto Maple Leafs. The National Hockey League club left the 29-year-old winger off then- protested list in last June's National Hockey League draft. He was the first Leaf to go in the expansion Atlanta. Now MacMillan and his Flames' team-mates are burn- ing up the NHL'S West Divi- sion. Their latest conquest came Thursday night, 4-0 over New Vork first-year moved them into third place, one point behind the co-leaders Phila- lelphia Flyers and Los Angeles Kings. MacMillan's fourth goal of the year, at of the first period, and second-game winning score for the Flames was all the mar- gin goaltender PWl Myre needed in posting his first shut- out of the season. JIABS IN CHARGE Montreal Canadians, who opened a seven-point lead in the East Division race over New York Rangers, were hard- pressed to beat Philadelphia 6-5 while Boston Bruins blanked St Louis Blues 4-0. The Kings visit Vancouver Canucks and Buffalo Sabres are In Oakland against California Golden Seals in tonight's only games. With tire Leafs laboring in sixth spot in the East, out of the playoff picture as of the mo- ment, MacMillan couldn't be more pleased with the change of scenery. "Beautiful city and grea he said recently, after settling with his family in the Georgia capital that never be- fore had entertained a hockey franchise. "I Just love it. Mos of the guys do." It's a far cry from lying in Toronto's Wellesley Hospita with an ailing back and hearinf that the Leafs weren't prepare to wait out his recovery. WHA CONSIDERED I He had been harborini thoughts of joining kid brothe Bobby with Minnesota Flghtin Saints of the rival Worl Hockey Association before sil ting down with Atlanta general manager Cliff Fletcher. The Flames offer was in the same area as that negotiated b the Saints, so MacMillan, Charlottetown native who wa Prince Edward Island's man o the year hi 1970, remained it the NHL.

Miller said the subject, o! American expansion has pre- nously been reviewed by the club "with the unanimous con- clusion that such a move would eventually destroy the CFL as a Canadian entity and in the proc- ess the Canadian game of foot- jail as we know it today. "In addition the Grey Cup would very soon become mean- WINNIPEG (CP) Head oach Jim Spavital didn't ac- aiowledge a preference be- ween Saskatchewan and Ed- nonton as opponents for his Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the Western Football Conference fi- al Sunday. But he did give the nod to Dave Skrien's Roughriders, mostly on the basis of ex- rerience and the heads-up foot- >all expected from veterans Ron Lancaster and George Reed, to wind up as the team to beat in the West. Neither the Winnipeg coach- ng staff nor the Bomber play- ers were even mildly surprised when Saskatchewan, who fin- shed third during the regular season, knocked off the second- jlace Eskimos 8-6 last weekend n the semi-final contest. It's no surprise that the Bombers are expecting a tough, punishing game with no quarter jxpected or give from Sas- katchewan. The Bombers will be trying this weekend to extend their un- defeated home-game record to 14 games, a string that stretches back to last season when the last team to bea them in Winnipeg Stadium was Skrien's Roughriders. Despite Skrien's insistenci that his club is hurting, Spavita isn't buying the story. After the Saskatchewan-Ed- monton game, Skrien said both ris guards, Jack Abendschan and Gary Brandt, were injured, as was George Reed, the pre- mier runninj, back with the club or the last 10 years. "Heed will be healthy come Sunday, you can count on ipavital said. "And he'll carry he ball 20 times. I've heard all he stories about Reed being in- ured this year, but I notice he ound time to rush for more .ban yards. Neither is Spavital convinced the Saskatchewan guards are ready for the nursing home. "Their pass blocking was ex- he said, referring to ;he semi-final contest against Edmonton. "Heck, Lancaster had a day and a half to tlrov. the ball so somebody must have been blocking." But the Winnipeg offensive line can't be taken lightly ei- ther. "They got to (quarterback Don) Jonas only five times, and that, includes the pre-season said offensive tackle Bill Frank. Frank, a veteran of 11 years in the Canadian Football League, says the Bomber offen- sive line has a lot of pride. "It's playing together and working together, I guess. We watch films together and we co- ordinate our blocks on game day. I've been with a lot of of- ;ensive lines but tins one is closer than all the rest." Bombers have eight rookies on the squad, giving them a team average of 2.5 years' ex- perience as a unit, while the Roughriders, carrying six first- year men, average 4.7 years to- gether. What sort of wrinkles can the Bombers expect from the Sas- katchewan offence? "Well they used an T forma- tion against Edmonton, which I haven't seen them use pre- viously this said Spa- vital. "And Lancaster and Reed, what more do they Despite sell-outs at the seat stadium for seven of the Bombers' eight home games this season, early indications are only about fans will take in the sudden-death con- test to decide the West's Grey Cup representative. The game will be telecast na- tionally on CBC beginning at MST. "If it wasn't for training camp, I think I could play until I was says offensive tackle Moe Racine of Ottawa Rough Rid- ers. Racine, who celebrated Hs 35th birthday last month, a oldest member of the Riders who face Hamilton Saturday in the opening of the Eastern Football Confer- ence finals. In his 15th year with Ottawa, Racine has played in three Grey Cup missed the 1969 game because of a shoulder injury. Says Ottawa head coach Jack Gotta: "Some guys at 35 are all washed up. This guy looks like he could go on forever." Racine, an EFC scoring champion while he was Ot- tawa's kicker, says he has no plans for retirement. "I make up my mind one year at a tune." Gotta meanwhile warded off comments on his weekend meeting with rice-president Harry Hulraes of New Orleans Saint's of the National Football League. Gotta, who ends his three- year contract with Riders this season, told The Ottawa Journal that he would be "silly if I said I wasn't prepared to listen" but expressed confidence he would be back with Ottawa next sea- son. Playoff time isn't the time to negotiate new contracts, be said. He said the notice of motion was presented by Toronto Argo- nauts of the Eastern Football Conference. Edmonton pre- sented a motion favoring ex- pansion, but "only to suitable Canadian centres." EAST FOR U.S. MOVE Miller indicated the eastern football conference teams fa- vored U.S. expansion. "The Eskimos directors rec- ognize the seriousness of the sit- uation because it has been sug- gested that if we do not vole in favor of the Toronto motion, the four eastern teams may elect to withdraw from the CFL at ths end of a three-year period pro- vided in the constitution. "If this is the irrevocable po- sition of the eastern owners, then the onus will be on their shoulders for the loss of Cana- dian football." The CFL as presently con- stituted is not witlxmt problems, Miller said. But it "can solve its difficulties and remain a strong and economically viable professional league keeping faith with its supporters and making a unique contribution to Canadian life." Edmonton intends "to seek the support of every possible source to convince eastern club owners of the depth of feeling in this country for Canadian foot- ball and the continuation of the CFL controlled by Canadians playing our Canadian brand of football."
