Well can you say WHA ???

The Original WHA had teams ..

Calgary Cowboys
Edmonton Oilers
Quebec Nordiques
Toronto Toros
Vancouver Blazers
Winnipeg Jets
Ottawa Nationals

Look enough teams in Canada to join the WHA and have Hockey in Canada ..

They also had Big Market teams that we would have here ..

Denver Spurs (Colorado)
Philadelphia Blazers
New-York Raiders
Michigan Stags (Detroit)
Chicago Cougars
Los-Angeles Sharks
New-England Whalers (Boston)
Houston Aeros (Dallas)

Not a bad league ...
