WHA ressurrected?.

CBC Sports

The WHA which was orriginally founded in the 1970s (you may remember such WHA teams as the dearly departed Winnipeg Jets and the Edmonton Oilers aka The Best Hockey Team Ever). It would appear the WHA has come under new ownership and there is currently a scheme in place to launch the league in the fall with at least 6 teams.

This means one of two things, that either the NHL and the NHLPA's bickering will cause a new rival to spring up and fill the void they happen to be leaving. Or alternatively it will spurr reconcilation given that the NHL, like most other sports leagues loathes competition.
