The WHA, likely.
Keith Primeau signed with the Flyers for 4 years and $17 million. Good move by the Flyers.
Brett's father the great Bobby is incharge of /commisioner for the WHA. He has even sold his house near me to work on it full time. He was the first big name to sign with the WHA in the 70's , so it's kind of fitting he's the spearhead of the second incarnation.Quote:

If there is no NHL this season, I hope the CBC will show the WHA or the juniors or women's hockey.

There are a bunch of NHL guys who have signed with European teams, with the stipulation that if/when the lockout ends, they'll go back to their original teams.Quote:

I think there's a real possibility of no NHL at all next year..the 2 sides seem farther apart then ever before. I don't think either side is gonna back off on the salary cap issue. I can't even imagine what the winter will be like with no hockey. :ohnoQuote:
