LMAO....you're a dope, Frankie.

However, he's right, (twice in a year...you're 2 ahead of Fraudie) there is a Whalers event in late February, in cooperation with the Hartford PAL, there is going to be a game where alumni take part...it will be part of Hartford Hockey Heritage weekend.

It's going to be a bigger event than usual, very big.  Everything is happening, Jeff Jacobs gets a promotion to being featured in 8 newspapers, new restaurant opened up at the XL Center, new baseball stadium, a new soccer stadium and soccer team is coming, the XL will be under new ownership (UConn?) shortly, the NHL is talking about moving up to 34 teams, new UConn campus in Hartford, we will have a new Governor a year from next week, Whalers are reported as being the 2nd biggest NHL team in merchandise sales, news reports now from the Law Tribune that they want to hear the Whalers back in 2018, everything is happening at once.

There is a Whalers-themed event, but that's it.  Don't make it sound like it's more than what it is, Frankie.  Seriously.

Honestly, if this is such a big event then why has no one else heard of it? You'd think that this would be promoted like the Goats game that brought back Whalers Alumni, or even the Wolf Pack's Heritage Weekend with their giveaway of a Gordie Howe Bobblehead. No one I know has heard a word about this event outside of a rumor of four or five former players showing up for a pregame at the XL Center.

From what I am hearing, expect there to be a local big name politician with ambitions in attendance there, it will really underline the importance of 2018 for us.

Everyones talking about it.  I guess You'd have to be into Hartford Hockey to know about it.  Maybe you should like some FB pages that deal with Hartford Hockey. 

Here are a few:

Hartford Hockey 

The HWBC

The Whalers Brigade

 

I'm sure you'll keep us update on any Ranger stuff. 

 

By the Way the GH doll is part of the "event" weekend, as every year since 2014-2015 the Wolf Pack honor the Whalers.

From what I heard at the BC meeting last night, they are still working on gathering alumni.  Once they have a final list, things will ramp up.
