HELP WANTED: CANADIAN NHL TEAM SEEKING COO

          The Maple Leafs are "searching across North America"
     for a new COO, according to Marty York of the Toronto GLOBE
     & MAIL.  Sources told York that the new COO will have "at
     least the same level of authority" as team President & GM
     Ken Dryden, and "may even rank higher than Dryden."  The
     Leafs have already hired a head-hunter, and sources say that
     the "leading candidate" is former Trail Blazers President
     Marshall Glickman.  Glickman was "reluctant to discuss" the
     Leafs yesterday, but "did confirm" that he has had "recent
     conversations" with the franchise, specifically with Chair
     Steve Stavro and Minority Partner Larry Tanenbaum.  Others
     who have been approached "either directly or indirectly"
     include IHL Aeros President Richard Adler, CFL Chair John
     Tory and Blue Jays Counsel Gord Kirke.  Tory "confirmed" the
     position was brought up to him; Adler was unavailable and
     Kirke declined to comment (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 12/4).
