the 1979 all-star teamLike everything else about the league, the WHA's All Star Game was anything but filled with tradition. Ever-changing league fortunes meant a different format for the annual mid-season classic every year.

They tried the most common format of East versus West four times. They tried a Canada-US showdown once, a 3 game series against the Moscow Dynamo which the WHA swept, & also experimented with the Avco Cup champions taking on a team made up of the league's other stars.

'74 All Star Game - Cleveland, OHThe annual all-star game was one of the few bright spots it had going for it at times, nearly always a sell-out and a good draw on tv when they got exposure.
