As the now defunct World Hockey Association was trying to compete with the National Hockey League, Robert Picard, a promising young defenseman who had been the Washington Capitals 1st draft pick, signed a 5-year $125,000 per season contract with the Québec Nordiques of the WHA. This despite having signed an agreement with the Capitals.

"I'd rather deliver pizzas in Québec City than play for the Washington Capitals. "

-- Robert Picard, September 12, 1977

Eleven days later, the president of the WHA judged the contract with the Nordiques invalid and Picard joined Washington where he started his 13-year NHL career with Washington (3 seasons), Toronto, Montréal, Winnipeg, Québec and Detroit.
