The talented Nick Burton is always good for a special concept series. While not strictly a minor league, he's tackling a WHA Revival as Minor League Week winds down. This four-part series will play out over the coming Thursdays and we begin with the Houston Aeros.
Nick's take on the Vancouver Blazers feels like a mashup between the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Millionaires, but it's a pretty solid set.
We wrap up Part 1 with one of the teams that made the transition to the NHL when the WHA shut down in 1979. If the team were still around today, perhaps they'd look something like this.
Next week we'll see Nick's take on another trio of WHA franchises.
