Men of influence in the NHL. John Ziegler: As president of the NHL since 1977, he has brought the league into a period of full rinks and generally full wallets for owners. Conservative on expansion. Criticized for accepting TV contract with SportsChannel America, which is available in fewer than half of the league's cities. Gives autonomy to Brian O'Neill in disciplinary decisions, to Gil Stein in legal matters and to Steve Ryan in marketing.

As long as Cliff Fletcher says fighting is "a safety valve" for releasing tempers, brawling will not be banned in the NHL. As long as Bill Torrey remembers how mightily he struggled to put together a decent team from the dregs available to the New York Islanders in the 1972 expansion draft, newcomers to the NHL will get a reasonable selection of players to build with.

Philadelphia Flyers' goaltender Ron Hextall has been suspended for the first 12 games of next season for a deliberate attempt to injure a Montreal player, the National Hockey League announced today. Late in the sixth game of the Stanley Cup playoff semifinals in which the Flyers were eliminated by the Canadiens earlier this month, Hextall skated out of his goal and attacked Montreal defenseman Chris Chelios with his stick. Hextall said the attack was retaliation for an incident in the opening game of the series in which Chelios hit Philadelphia's Brian Propp with an elbow to the head that sent him to a hospital with a slight concussion.

In light of Pelle Lindbergh's tragic alcohol-related accident early Sunday morning, is the league likely to forbid beer or liquor in the locker room? It was reported Monday that Lindbergh had a .24 blood alcohol content, well over the legal limit of .10.

The firing of Ranger Coach Roger Neilson came down to a simple power struggle--Mark Messier vs. Neilson. Lost in the hype of that battle was the notion that Neilson might not have been the right coach for the Rangers. He's ideal for a bunch of grinders, not swift-skating star players. For the Rangers, his tactics were unsuitable. Messier believed this. And if Messier thought it, so did his teammates. Neilson refused to back down and lost his job.

Harold Ballard, the 82-year-old owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs, was released from a hospital recently after undergoing prostate surgery. He was hospitalized for 16 days. Ballard missed last week's meeting of the National Hockey League governors, during which the league decided that NHL All-Stars will play two games against a Soviet hockey team next February in Quebec. What does Ballard, not known for his warm feelings about the Soviet Union, think about playing the Soviets?
