Me too. He seems to get little if any credit for his WHA accomplishments. Despite the fact that:

-He practically carried the league on his back and by doing so increased NHL salaries.
-Proved that he could win cup championships if on the right team.
-revolutionized the game with Hedberg & Nilsson with their blending of the North American and European style of play. Glen Sather had more than a little success with Edmonton by adopting the Winnipeg style of play.
