Jason from foolish worker bee was kind enough to remind me that even though Hamilton supposedly offered Sidney Crosby a huge WHA deal, the Toronto franchise is the WHA property with his rights, as established by their recent amateur draft. So basically, not only doesn’t the WHA exist, what does exist is a free-for-all of contract grabbing and secret signings. And really. Is there anything more exciting than a player starting the first period on one team and coming out after the second intermission wearing another team’s jersey?
I sure don’t think so.
