A must listen episode where Cam Connor shares his thoughts on what was the NHL's rival league - the World Hockey Association (WHA). Was it really a rival league, what made the WHA work and what led to it's downfall. This episode includes what may be Cam's best story yet - a story of an epic bench brawl involving the Hanson Brothers (from the movie Slapshot), Barry Dean, Paul Holmgren, and Curt Brackenbury. Yes, the WHA was really that tough of a league. Cam answers questions about participating in the Sports All Star edition of Wipeout Canada; advice for someone trying to make the NHL and did the WHA really play with BLUE pucks? Also, who did Cam say was a tasmanian devil to fight? Part 2 includes Cam's time with the legendary Gordie Howe and Howe's two sons in the WHA.
