There was an interesting article in a Canadian paper back in October. (Tried to find it again, but I couldn't. Sorry.)

The NHLPA had a chance to purchase the WHA for a song back in September, and they decided not to do it. The author made the point that they could have been playing in a union-run WHA, which would have had the benefits of helping their image, and have given them something to counter the league's threats of replacement players: a replacement league.

It certainly seems as though that would have been a better option than this Original Stars tour.
