How popular were the Hartford Whalers?
It's hard to quantify this answer with actual numbers, but the Whalers apparently were well supported in both the old WHA and during their NHL years. However, Hartford is a smaller market for professional sports, and owner Peter Karmanos decided to move the team to Raleigh, NC where he hoped a larger market and population would bring more support and thus more money and profits for his team.
