And I can tell ya this much: there are more "transplanted Yankees" in Houston today than there were back then!

That's a huge potential hockey market.

NHL Hockey WILL succeed in Houston if it ever comes. I can tell ya this much. It doesn't make sense for places like Phoenix, Nashville, and Tampa to have NHL teams, and Houston not to.

As for the Texans not getting much interest.............uhh.................that's wrong.

They sell out EVERY game.........have since they were founded, and have consistently ranked in the Top 1/3 of the NFL in attendance. Forbes recently ranked them as one of the most valuable pro sports franchises.
This has probably already been discussed, but what happened to the 1970's Areos? How come they weren't included in the WHA-NHL merger?
