  1. The Americans Stay Strong in St. Louis: The History of the St. Louis Americans of the NHL

    Who says the WHA has to form this time? The NHL-WHL merger may lead to a more expansionist NHL. As for the WHL season updates, do them just so we get a feel for the players and teams that are joining.
  2. The Americans Stay Strong in St. Louis: The History of the St. Louis Americans of the NHL

    Whilst they don't seem to have joined the WHL ITTL, the Winnipeg Warriors were a team in the WHL from 1955 to 1961. Winnipeg Arena was finished in 1955 and it's first event was the inaugural home opener for the Warriors.
  3. The Americans Stay Strong in St. Louis: The History of the St. Louis Americans of the NHL

    Interesting that a lot of the WHL teams seemed to have formed, collapsed or renamed earlier ITTL then the predominantly Canadian based league that the WHL was in 1959 OTL. I'm guessing that the leadership in the WHL would also be a bit more amiable to merging with the NHL instead of seeing them...
  4. The Americans Stay Strong in St. Louis: The History of the St. Louis Americans of the NHL

    Good to see this back! O'Ree in OTL wasn't a star. Far from it he bounced between the NHL and the NHL's farm league at the time the EPHL (which started in 1958) before heading west to the WHL. Not saying he can't be a star ITTL just that whilst celebrated rightfully for what he did, he just...
  5. The Americans Stay Strong in St. Louis: The History of the St. Louis Americans of the NHL

    I do wonder how similar the 67 expansion will be to OTL. You'd think that the Americans and Barons would have had some affect on hockey's popularity. For example could Cincinnati possible get a team (or maybe an AHL team?) or are there any other AHL teams who after seeing the Barons step up into...
  6. The Americans Stay Strong in St. Louis: The History of the St. Louis Americans of the NHL

    I hope this is still going! The little mentions of future events still has me intrigued
  7. The Americans Stay Strong in St. Louis: The History of the St. Louis Americans of the NHL

    With the Americans finally winning the cup and taking over as the main team in St.Louis, I'm curious to see what happens to the Flyers. Being the farm team, they'd want to be kept close by so would Kansas City possibly work in they are moved? And if the Flyers survive and keep the name...
  8. The Americans Stay Strong in St. Louis: The History of the St. Louis Americans of the NHL

    I'm slowly working on it. It's mostly an outline atm moment and something I'll eventually start posting
  9. The Americans Stay Strong in St. Louis: The History of the St. Louis Americans of the NHL

    You said that you have a rough outline down to help with writing the timeline so I was wondering if you have an idea for a natural stopping point? Something I've been putting together for a potentially shorter timeline on the NHL is using 2017 as the end point simply because it lines up with...
  10. The Americans Stay Strong in St. Louis: The History of the St. Louis Americans of the NHL

    Not sure if you've got or even read it but the book Fabric of the Game has a tonne of alternate team designs and names for when you get up to expansions/relocations/rebrands.
  11. The Americans Stay Strong in St. Louis: The History of the St. Louis Americans of the NHL

    Glad I found this! An interesting concept that is already have reverberations throughout the NHL and it's future. The Barons have Light Blue in their logo but what are their colours overall? The Barons from the OTL were red and black in colours and the league so far is very red, blue and white...
  12. Battle Royale: The Last Generation Of An SNES-CD Saga

    Loving the way you are wrapping this TL up Ry. With Halo Infinite soon to be released IRL, I'm intrigued to see how the last Covenant game ITTL goes and how popular it is. I may have missed this earlier but have you mentioned the studio that makes the Covenant games and who owns them? Last I...
  13. AH Timeline: The NHL-WHA merger: A different story

    The logo change makes sense but the colours are iconic even ITRTL where they were gone for awhile. What colours are the Wranglers? Because the refreshed Oilers would probably what to contrast them.
  14. AH Timeline: The NHL-WHA merger: A different story

    I'm surprised that the Oilers colours weren't revived as well even with a new logo. When the Jets came back IOTL they stuck pretty closely to the original colours to get that nostalgia boost.
  15. AH Timeline: The NHL-WHA merger: A different story

    I'll vote Blue Jackets simply because Monarchs is too close to the Kings. It's interesting though that Cincinnati is rebranding despite being the older and more established of the two teams.
