I'm recruiting for a Simon T hockey league I'm running on my site @ simsportleagues.com. The league is called Behind the Bench and is based on the 1972-73 season with the plans being for an open evolution going forward. Meaning the teams and leagues will progress organically based on how the GM does. There's no reason a good GM couldn't keep the California Golden Seals going or take the WHA's Ottawa Nationals into the merger. It might not be easy, but it's possible.
If you're interested - the GM client for this game is 100% free so there's no cost to play as a GM - head over to http://simsportleagu....php/hockey/btbto see the background, rules, etc. You can message me here or use the Info link on my website to send me an email.
Right now there are eight available teams - 3 NHL (California, Minnesota and St. Louis) and 5 WHA (Alberta, Cleveland, Minnesota, Ottawa and Philadelphia).
Thanks for checking it out!
