How long do we have to wait until we find out if Vancouver is officially awarded a franchise in the WHA? Has it been made official yet?

Yes It's what J-P Boily, the president of Québec's team said. The 5 official teams supposelly all have a deal for an arena (or stadium).

According to Sportscentre, it's official. Vancouver is the founder's franchise that picked Bertuzzi in the first round of the draft. They will play their games at GM Place.

Does anyone know what happened to the Toros? Why are they not listed as one of the teams?

the risk of having fans who behave equal to the leafs fans was too big.
