In a special Concepts series, Nick Burton is reviving the WHA. What would the teams look like if they were still around 40 years later? Part 3 begins with the Indianapolis Racers — famous for being Wayne Gretzky's first pro team.
Looks like they would've had the same black-and-white fate as another one of Gretzky's teams, the L.A. Kings. It kind of works.
How about this timeless look for the Minnesota Fighting Saints? Though I'm sure that logo would've been updated sometime in the last four decades.
We finish this installment with the Chicago Cougars and their many stripes.
Check back next Thursday for the finale of Nick's series — featuring Calgary, Cleveland and... the New England Whalers!
