Nice profile. When he ran the Blues, future HOFer Joe Mullen was another tremendous player Francis brought to St. Louis.
Later, in Hartford, Francis brought several ex-Blues besides Liut and Babych to the Whalers organization including Tony Currie, Mike Crombeen, Mark Reeds, Jack Brownschidle, Bob Crawford, Mike Zuke, and Ed Staniowski. Also, Francis signed Jack Evans as head coach of the Whalers, who had coached the Salt Lake Golden Eagles, the Blues CHL affiliate in the late 70s and early 80s.
