Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 30, 1971 THE ItTHMIDGE HERALD t Wings play three in same number of nights Leafs hit tough part of schedule By THE CANADIAN PRESS Three League National Hockey games in as many nights don't worry coach John McLellan so much as they do defenceman Jim McKenny. It's the only three-games-in- three-nights marathon of the season for Toronto Maple Leafs and results from the Oct. 13 death of Gardens' president Stafford Smythe. Toronto and Detroit Red Wings were scheduled to open the Leafs' home season that night but the game was post- poned until Monday, Nov. 1, out of respect for I he Toronto exec- utive. The Toronto weekend starts tonight at home against Minne- sota North Stars and continues Sunday in New York with the ANDY CAPP ICAU'i-EblN ATVERJ 1MOTHERISJ'PET- BLIMEY.

Last week the WHA disclosed here it would compete against the long-established National Hockey League without benefit of the reserve clause in player relations. John Syke, president of Chi- cago Hockey Inc., told a news conference that the WHA, which is to hold a formal organiza- tional meeting in New York Monday, aims for each member club to have five players wooed from the NHL on its 20-man ros- ter. "We don't envision raiding the NHL, but we know all NHL players are anxious for the for- mation of this new league." Oilier WHA franchises have been granted lo New York, Miami, SI. Paul, Ohio, Daylon and Columbus, Milwaukee, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Cal- gary, Edmonton and Winnipeg. Syke said the Cougars are al- ready negotiating for a general manager, coach and players.

LONDON1 (CP) After a sudden shake-up of heavy- weight boxing titles here, Ca- nadian champion Georges Chuvalo may be in line for the Commonwealth prize before the end of the year. The British, European and Commonwealth titles have changed hands since ex-cham- pion Henry Cooper lost them on points to giant prodigy Joe Bugner six months ago. Box- ing experts described it as "the most controversial of de- cisions." Now Bugner has been top- pled frcnr his short-lived reign by Jack Bodell, carthorse of the British heavyweight ring, and, ironically, twice runner- up to veteran Cooper. Bodell has called on Chu- valo to challenge his Com- monwealth title. And the fight may take place in London about Christmas time. With Cooper retired, Bodell, 31, wants to show he's boss. After Chuvalo, he wants to take on Spanish champion Jose Urtain to clear up the other main contender for his European title. After his 15-round win on points over Bugner, stocky Bodell alto has been named No. 8 contender for Joe Fra- zier's world title in front of Chuvalo and American Ernie Terrell. Bodell's ring policy is to employ brute force. A crude fighter without the polish of Cooper or ex-world champion Cassius Clay, he tries to wear his opponent, down with wheel- ing swings and heavy drives to the body.
