Bobby Hull Bobby Hull quote - Believing a merger between the NHL and WHA would lead to better hockey, Hull stated "We could eliminate the weak franchises in both leagues and get rid of 100 or so jerks who just play for the money and don't put anything back into the game. We'd have something good again."
