NHL pain, WHA's Gain?

Bobby Hull, commissioner of the embryonic WHA seems to think so. He predicts the NHL will shut down for at least a year.

Organizers of the new WHA hope to take advantage of NHL labour troubles by beginning play in the 2004-05 season. Hull said the league is even considering NHL cities like Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas and Edmonton because of the potential of cancelled NHL seasons. "We're not afraid to go there because there are not going to be any NHL teams in those places for a couple years,'' said Hull.
