Time flies by,15 years have passed since the Whalers last game.It's sad to remember.Hartford was the first team I've supported when I started to love hockey.
It's a heartbreaking feeling every 13th of April.
They'll be in my heart forever.
I hope the state of Connecticut will get a new team in the NHL but with a different name, a contrario to Winnipeg.
Anyway we need a team here.
Thank you for creating this blog, a precious gate to the world of hockey.
