If Marc Denis signs I'll cheer for Quebec. Otherwise probably Halifax, how can you not cheer for a team that takes Travis Green in the 1st round

I'm from Nova Scotia so I gotta go for Halifax, the city hasn't had Pro hockey around for a while since the AHL left since then it's just been the Mooseheads of the QMJHL, so i'm kinda excited to maybe go out and see a few Icebreaker games.

Being from Quebec city, Nordiks, of course!

Maybe I'm a nostalgic, but it would be awesome if the can sign at least 1 players who still play from the formers NHL Nordiques. Imagine Sakic, Sundin, Nolan, Foote or Ricci coming back to play in Québec if there is a lock-out. What a nice dream, hehe!

The Toronto Curlers...I mean Toro's.

I hope Crosby plays in the WHA just for the Reasont hat I could go catch a game with him Live.

I'd have to wait and see if anybody actually signs. Based on who's rights the teams have if everybody were to sign with the team they were picked by I'd be cheering for Toronto, despite the ugly logo.

I'm cheering for the Dallas Americans cause I know one of the players drafted (won't say who or whether he will play for them) and for the Toronto Toros (same reason).

Dallas is official? Why does the WHA site say "Vancouver or Dallas"?

Probably Quebec.

Not sure why, that old franchise flavor perhaps?

Dallas is official. The Founders' Franchise will either be in Cincinnati or Vancouver.

Halifax, B/c I'm from NS, have lived in Halifax, and will be living there next year. I will go to some games no question. Well, only question is whether they play or not, If they play, I'll go.

The Nords because I'm an old Quebec fan and because they built their team with local players which is great. Even if Ribeiro, Denis and Gagné do not sign we will still see players that we'll love because they're from La Belle Province. It will be easy for Québécois to get in love with a team full of their boys.
