Start of 1980-81 Season

After being on the verge of bankruptcy due to poor attendance, and a lack of marketing potential in such a small market, the owners of the Birmingham Bulls decide to sell the team to an ownership group based out of Dallas, who promptly relocated them into the brand new 16,500 seat Reunion Arena.

The Flames will stay in Atlanta because of this.

Notable retirements:
Gordie Howe
Bobby Hull
Dave Keon
Andre LaCroix
Stan Mikita
