Clarence Campbell, president of
the NHL said: "We are extremely
enthusiastic with the prospect for
major league hockey in Vancouver
and Buffalo. We are confident
they will bring new and important
strength to the league."
The conditions for Vancouver
as stated by the board were:
Acquisition by Medicor of

which owns the Vancouver Can-
ucks of the Western League and
Buffalo's franchise was awarded
to the Niagara Frontier Hockey
Corp., a group headed by the
Knox brothers. The board pointed
out that the granting of the fran-
chise "is contingent on the for-
mal approval by Buffalo city au-
thorities to increase by the 1970-
71 season the seating capacity of
War Memorial Auditorium to not
less than 15,000 seats. In addition
there will have to be an execution
of a lease satisfactory to the NHL
between the city of Bufalo and
the hockey club.
The conditions will have to be
met by the clubs by Dec. 20, 1969.
With the addition of the two
new clubs, the 1970-71 schedule
will have each team playing 78
games, six against each of the
other 13 teams.
The playoff alignment was also
changed slightly. The four top
teams in each division will meet
each other in best-of-seven quar-
terfinal games with the East win-
ners meeting the West survivors
in the semi final round. This sys-
tem makes it possible for two
teams in one division to play for
the Stanley Cup.
