There have been countless attempts to turn Kansas City into an NHL town, including one by former state Lieutenant Governor Bill Morris who was convinced that a minor league franchise was the first step on the bath to the big time. Although it’s never quite worked out for the city, this 13-by-20 inch cardboard standee serves as a fascinatin­g reminder of a time when it all seemed possible, and of the short-lived tenure (1967-72) of this Central Hockey League affiliate of the St. Louis Blues.
