toxtethogrady Posted April 10, 2015 Share Posted April 10, 2015 The last "major" hockey team was the Houston Aeros, who brought home two league championships before folding in 1978. Houston has also had a minor league hockey team, but they got kicked out of Toyota Center two years ago and relocated to another city. Now the talk is hot and heavy about bringing an NHL franchise to Houston - but the NHL spurned the Aeros in 1978, and the recent closing of a minor league team for lack of local support doesn't look good (and even after four championships, the WNBA couldn't make it in Houston). So what's it going to take to bring the Aeros back? (My guess - a deep-pocketed owner, which is who Drayton McLane and Bob McNair were). http://blog.chron.com/sportsupdate/2015/04/study-houston-considered-best-market-to-add-an-nhl-team/#29954101=0 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
