Samuelsson, Francis and Dineen being retired by Hartford is silly, it was done after the fact and in 2006. I am not even sure the Mall is still there.
On a side note Johnie Pie didn't play for the Hartford Whalers, the whole thing was staged to garner in Boston Bruins fans when the Whale went from the WHA to the NHL.
The Mall is still there, at the time the Hartford Wolfpack were playing in that arena. They have changed their name to the Connecticut Whale. They are the Rangers AHL affiliate.
