REAL-WORLD TEAM HISTORY
THE CENTRAL HOCKEY LEAGUE'S ST. LOUIS BLACK HAWKS RELOCATED TO DALLAS FOR THE 1967-68 SEASON, WHERE THEY PLAYED UNTIL 1982. THE LONG-TIME CHICAGO BLACK HAWKS FARM TEAM WON FOUR ADAMS CUP CHAMPIONSHIPS AND MISSED THE PLAYOFFS ONLY ONCE IN 15 YEARS. DALLAS ENJOYED A PASSIONATE SERIES WITH CROSS-TOWN RIVALS FORT WORTH WINGS, WHICH WAS HIGH/LOW LIGHTED BY A 10 CENT BEER NIGHT/RIOT IN 1978. WHILE ALSO COACHED BY ROGER NEILSON AND JOHN MUCKLER, THE HAWKS ENJOYED THEIR MOST SUCCESS UNDER BOBBY KROMM. COACHING A TEAM WITH A REPUTATION FOR TOUGH, PHYSICAL PLAY, KROMM WAS BEHIND THE BENCH FOR THE FIRST THREE ADAMS CUPS BEFORE WINNING THE W.H.A. TITLE WITH THE WINNIPEG JETS AND COACHING THREE YEARS WITH THE DETROIT RED WINGS. THE END OF THE ROAD FOR THE BLACK HAWKS CAME WHEN PARENT CLUB VANCOUVER CANUCKS DECIDED NOT TO RENEW THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE DALLAS OUTFIT, WHICH BROUGHT ABOUT A 10-YEAR HIATUS FOR PROFESSIONAL HOCKEY IN NORTH TEXAS.
NOTABLE N.H.L. ALUMNI INCLUDE: DIRK GRAHAM, RON WILSON, RANDY CARLYLE, PAUL SHMYR, DAN MALONEY, STAN SMYL, J.P. BORDELEAU AND CLIFF KOROLL.
THE DALLAS BLACK HAWKS PLAYED THEIR HOME GAMES AT THE FAIR PARK COLISEUM. THE COLISEUM IS LOCATED ON THE TEXAS STATE FAIRGROUNDS IN EAST DALLAS, A FEW HUNDRED YARDS AWAY FROM THE COTTON BOWL STADIUM OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL FAME. THE 7,000 SEAT BARN WAS ORIGINALLY BUILT FOR LIVESTOCK SHOWS AND WOULD LATER (BRIEFLY) HOST THE CENTRAL HOCKEY LEAGUE'S DALLAS FREEZE.

The Pittsburgh Athletic Club (Pittsburgh PAC) were the only team to play in every season of the Western Pennsylvania Hockey League (WPHL) from 1897-1904, 1908-1909. They won the first three championships, with 1897 ending with no winner due to a fire destroying the Schenley Park Casino, the first arena in North America to feature an artificial ice-making plant.
As Pittsburghers had next to no experience playing hockey at this time, Canadian transplants lured by the paychecks filled the league. By 1902 Harry Peel admitted the Keystones club were paying him reportedly $35 a week and the WPHL was forced to call themselves the first professional hockey league in the world. Pittsburgh PAC first signed Canadians George Lamb and Bill Hamilton, but their major coup was signing Hall of Famer Alf Smith to captain their squad in 1902. Cyclone Taylor was also a member of the team for three games in 1909 before the start of the NHA where he returned to Ottawa.
After professionalism took hold of the Canadian leagues, the WPHL struggled to maintain the same level of play. The WPHL was forced to fold at the end of the 1908-09 season following a number of mid-season defections from Canadians able to chase paydays at home now.

Remember to update your roster post guys! (So we can all see and compare teams within a division as we progress)

In 1930, James Norris pursued the NHL for rights to a second NHL team in Chicago, but was spurned by the league who supported the NHL Chicago Black Hawks concerns regarding competition for fan base. He turned to the American Hockey Association who gave him rights to an expansion team in Chicago. The league had renamed itself the American Hockey League and declared itself a major league, to the anger of NHL president Frank Calder, who branded the league an outlaw league.
In 1931-32 season, their second, the Shamrocks won the league championship. Convinced they should be given a chance to play for the Stanley Cup, they petitioned the Cup trustees for that opportunity. However the trustees would have to convince the NHL to accept that challenge and the NHL would not. Perhaps frustrated by this, Norris once again looked to join the NHL.
In May 1932, the Detroit Falcons of the NHL declared bankruptcy, and Norris used that opportunity to convince the NHL he could take over the team. The NHL agreed on the condition that he disband the Shamrocks who were a thorn in the side for the Chicago Blackhawks. So he disbanded the Shamrocks and took three of the best players with him to Detroit, renaming the team the Red Wings. The American Hockey League reverted to the American Hockey Association after this and once again demoted itself to minor league status.
Great story. Thanks for that.
Hockey history is full of them and the more we share int he ATDs the better!
though seven of the squads are only half done (at the moment).
Get it done guys! It's quick, easy and fun to click on the bios and see what they are about in assessing your team.
For the ten teams that have no links, here is how you can do it, if you have the time:
STEP 1: [url=
STEP 2: then put in link
STEP 3: Put in endbracket
STEP 4: name of player
STEP 5: [/url]
Or just 'quote' a post that has links and check out the code for yourself. Once you do it once or twice, it's fast and easy!
The sad part is that i some time after this was posted did just that, but just as i pasted something totally different over my 2013 budget the other day i did the same on my roster at about the same time voting started here. Fixed it but are tired so cant go looking for real bios now only from Internationalhockeylegends.
