whalerfan Posted July 31, 2010 Report Share Posted July 31, 2010 As I have posted before , Howard Baldwin is back in Hartford and is not stopping at trying to get Hartford back on the NHL radar. He has organized a Hartford Whalers reunion charity dinner and a fan festival with many players returning to Hartford this August.....Including Ronnie Francis, Kevin Dineen, Joel Quenneville, Mike Liut just to name a few......and Gordie Howe will also be there. In February of 2011 , with the NHL's approval he has organized a 10 day outdoor hockey festival at our 40,000 seat arena. To commerate the 25th anniversary of when Hartford hosted the all star game. He has invited many greats from that game ( Messier, Gretzky, etc) to take on a hollywood celebrity team, along with many high level high school and college games and the Whalers alumni vs the Bruins alumni. He has also taken control on the AHL team " Hartford Wolfpack".....they will from now on , starting this season be re-named the Connecticut Whalers and will wear the Green and blue colors of whalers old. They will still affiliated with the NY rangers. He is hoping for an average of 8,000- 9,000 per game for the AHL. They will also most likely be playing in the outdoor festival. Next on order will be to determine if the existing XL Center can be retrofitted to please NHL standards or if a new arena is needed.... please visit these sites and offer your words of support http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=121...3;/WhalerNation http://www.whalerssports.com/ GOING BACK TO MONTREAL IN LATE FEBRUARY TO SEE MY HABS BEAT UP ON THE HURRICANES....WILL BE WEARING MY OLD SCHOOL WHALER JERSEY , CHEERING ON THE HABS!!!!
