Each franchise was allowed one selection prior to the NHL/AHL Free Agent Draft on July 17, 2004.

The WHA draft exemptions are:

Dallas – Brett Hull (unrestricted Free Agent)
Detroit – Chris Chelios (unrestricted Free Agent)
Florida – Martin St. Louis (restricted Free Agent)
Halifax – Glen Murray (unrestricted Free Agent)
Hamilton – Paul Kariya (unrestricted Free Agent)
Québec – Mike Ribeiro (restricted Free Agent)
Toronto – Chris Phillips (restricted Free Agent)

Each WHA team will draft 30 NHL/AHL Free Agents on July 17th, 2004 and 30 Entry Level Players on July 18th, 2004.

If the WHA works, I think theres is a good chace that Ribs can be offered alot more by Quebec that what MTL can offer to him.

So what do you guys think, is there a good possibility that we wont have Ribs for next years? (If there is one) And what will happen to our roster?
Hull should be going to the WHA.
