Imlach, who became GM only a week ago, added that Olmstead will be hi charge of the dressing room.

His appointment as player-coach was on a temporary basis. Imlach implied more heads might roll if the club doesn't begin to pick up steam. When Imlach became general manager, he gave the Leafs four games to improve. In that span, they won two and lost two. Reay left no boubt as to his feelings.
