I have an idea. Since they aren't going to give us a NHL dynasty game, I was thinking that the only possible thing to do would be to start or convert an existing HBD world into an NHL themed world. I'm thinking the name of it would be the National Hardball League (NHL!!), and teams would only be located in NHL cities with NHL names. Unfortunately, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg would have to be left out, but there is the Atlanta Flames or Thrashers, Hartford Whalers, KC Scouts, Oakland? Seals and Cleveland Barons.
I'm thinking that I'm going to go for this. The main sticking point is that I'll bet that WiS won't let me start a new world up, and it might be hard to find a world that is willing to give itself up for dead.
If you are interested in joining me in this endeavor just post here or sitemail me.
I'll say this right off the bat though - DIBS on the Toronto Maple Leafs!
