Ottawa (If you consider it the same team, I do so I put it here)
Winnipeg
Hartford/Carolina
Edmonton

Vancouver

Have any others?

Montreal Wanderers and Quebec Bulldogs were both part of the NHA I believe and ended up playing some NHL games. I believe the Toronto Franchise was a different one than the NHA one though.

There were other WHA teams, but none who survived to the NHL.

The Toronto NHA team and the Toronto NHL team are not the same team.

It would be easier to look up some information on the formation of the NHL than for me to try to write it all out the details here. It's an interesting story.

Yes they were. The owners of the WHL Canucks were the original owners of the NHL franchise. They hired their top coaching candidate, Hal Laycoe, midway through the 1969-70 WHL season even though the team was in 1st place under coach Joe Crozier.

Ya, the situation in Toronto was complicated, actually precipitating the creation of the NHL & folding of the NHA. See Eddie Livingston on wiki for a detailed breakdown of the chain running from the Toronto BlueShirts & Arenas' to the Shamrocks & St. Pats to the Leafs...
