This week’s show features the NHL trade deadline, which was in 1970 nothing like the media circus we experience today. Only one trade was made, but it was a big one, with Leafs legend Tim Horton leaving the only NHL team he had ever known. Also, a couple of coaches received contract extensions, and we have an update on baseball player Curt Flood’s challenge of the reserve clause.
