In all honesty, meeting regularly I think they'd have faired pretty well, New England & Winnipeg in particular possibly doing better than just average. Though pre-season, I think both the NHL & certainly the WHA teams wouldve taken these games fairly seriously, though that perhaps cant be said for all of the NHL clubs. Hard to say, nor would be inclined to write-off a matchup between WHA AllStars vs either the Montreal Canadiens or a Bruins or team of NHL AllStars.
