nowales, & shobob --->>> 4 the record...
Actually - actually - actually, (&, in fact), ---my above-upper comments,
were regarding another (as yet 2 B fulfilled) promise of the immortals
@ WiS, who need 2 take an eternity to deliver new stuff 2 the current
database of skaters...
Yuppp on that Edmonton Oiler thingy, as there were a few teams that
came into the NHL, from the old World Hockey Association, way back
in the 70's... That same team was originally founded as the ALBERTA
Oilers... Their name changed after their inaugural season... Alot of the
great NHL'rs jumped leagues back then, & the NHL did what it had 2,
bringing back their old "marquee" star skaters... They did so by letting
some teams from that league join-up w/ the NHL... What a league !!!
Anyways, all the 'holes' that U see in great careers, -such as GHowe
& his sons, were only created here, when WiS needed the O.K. from
the NHL, ''licensing-wise'', 2 B able 2 use actual NHL names... Like
the great baseball career of Ted Williams, his name doesn't appear
in the database during the seasons where he fought in World War 2,
during the 1940's... Now, such NHL affiliation is no longer exclusive
here, therefore, they R now free 2 explore the use of W.H.A. skaters.
Yeah, they were also promised, just like the 'Dynasty' issues, which
R also located in the "UN-FULFILLED-DEPT." there @ WiS...
Just thought eye'd let ya' BOTH know, ---that those other teams U'd
posted here were NHL teams ONLY... The Winnepeg Jets, also an
original World Hockey Assoc. team, & the Quebec Nordiques came
to the NHL, after the W.H.A. folded, & went defunct...
Small history, eye know... Even the "Baseball Sim" here has access
2 many pitchers & hitters from the old Federal Leagues of the early
1900's... Yawn, yawn, yawn (waiting), tick-tock-tick, W.H.A. skaters ?
