Yes, I completely agree. Gone but not forgotten. In fact, I still think Atlanta every time I see a Calgary jersey or hear "Flames". That move right there back in 1980 should never have been permitted to have taken place, Calgary entering via Expansion. Legendary actor Glenn Ford along with a number of investors offering fair market value, enthusiasm, honourable intent. Thats twice now the NHL's failed in a virtual no-brainer market, broken its covenants with not only the fans in Georgia & the throughout the south but with right thinking fans everywhere else as well.

Probably have an arena in Scottsdale or elsewhere in Phoenix named after him; display case setup at Glendale arena. If the team does wind up in Quebec or elsewhere I think he may well play out his contract somewhere else but his home is in Arizona, returning thereafter. Sunk some deep roots in the community.
