Did you see that there's going to be a team called the Québec Nordiks? Perhaps they'll be joined by the Winnipeg Jetz...

the nhl owns the name "Nordiques" so thats why they had to use that spelling

the league will never get off the ground and of the guys picked 95% wouldn't even play if there is a lockout and 99.9% won't play when the nhl resumes...maybe a guy like bouchard would rather be a star in the WHA then a 7th/8th dman on the nhl if the $$ is similar, but you can't exactly build a league around a guy like bouchard...

tomorrow is their entry draft and they made 17 year olds eligible so they can take crosby...they want crosby either in toronto or his hometown of halifax...but crosby's agent already said that he won't play there and is returning to rimouski so picking him would just be for media hype so they headlines can read "WHA draft Crosby"...

but considering everything so far as just been imaginary and headlines, that would fall right in line

Detroit might target some Michigan and Michigan State players

Al Montoya and AJ Thelen have been mentioned

Where did Crosby's agent says he's returning to Rimouski? Got a link?

From what I heard second hand out of Pat Brisson's mouth, at $5 million, Crosby very well could be playing in the WHA next year.

Crosby's agent, Pat Brisson, said yesterday that there's almost no chance Crosby will play in the league.

"I've been talking to them for six months and I told them from the get-go that Sydney is going to play in the QMJHL next season," Brisson said. Crosby, whose family lives in Dartmouth, N.S., plays for the QMJHL's Rimouski Oceanic.

"If there is a league, sure they can talk to us, but does Sidney want to play in the WHA? I highly doubt it. It's not something that seems too appealing to him or his family," Brisson said.

Apples and oranges. The NHL doesn't recognize the WHA draft and ditto for the WHA. A team in each league can hold the rights to the same player. All it means is that the player can only play for the team that holds his rights in that league. Eric Lindros is still a UFA in the NHL, while the WHA team that drafted him has his rights. It only matters if Lindros decides to play in the WHA.

hope this helps

It would be highly ironic if Lindros would play for the "Québec Nordiks".

Montoya and Jessiman were picked in their amateur draft .....now that would be a disaster if Sather lost both players to the WHA.

Yes, indeed it would. I wonder if they would still boo him?

first crosby's agent already said he isn't going to play there...

but even if he did it wouldn't have any impact on his nhl rights because the nhl isn't going to acknowledge the WHA as an equal legal. getting drafted by WHA effects his nhl drafting eligibility the same as being drafted by rimouski in the bantam draft does, not at all...

and back in the old WHA players were drafted by both the WHA and NHL...the situation with gretzky was an exception to the rule because the nhl and ahl merged and gretzky was already property of a team that was going to join the nhl...

so if between now and next june, the WHA franchise in toronto became an nhl club then he'd be in the same situation as gretzky...otherwise it won't effect him
