    Personally I'd love to see the following cities have hockey teams

    Seattle, WA
    Portland, OR
    Winnipeg, MB
    Quebec City, QC
    Hamilton, ON

    I'd much rather see these cities have hockey teams than having teams in

    Florida
    Carolina
    Phoenix
    Nashville
    Atlanta
    Tampa Bay

    Though the rumored expansion teams are
    Las Vegas, NV and Kansas City, KS
    plus of course Hamilton, ON

    I think expanding to KC and Vegas would be a horrible thing for hockey. I believe Seattle would work well and Portland is just my own personal preference, not really looked into the business and demographics of it. I think Winnipeg and Quebec City should get teams back because they would do well under the salary cap system, and fans would go unlike well uh Nashville?!?!

    Anyways just a thought and a dream and it may never happen...I heard Seattle is getting a 500 Million Dollar Multi Purpose Arena anyways (not sure if thats true)
    Just a thought, realistic or not...I don't mind criticism either

    you are kind've overlooking the point that those teams you do not prefer for whatever reason actually have hundreds of thousands of living, breathing fans. why, some of them even post on these boards.

    having your team move is the worst thing that can happen to a fan. hence, blithely suggesting teams should move is usually construed as an insult.

    good luck.

    Two have pro franchises already(Hamilton, Winnipeg) ; Quebec has a junior league franchise that basically dominates that market(essentially why Hamilton has their pro franchise);

    Seattle is not getting a new arena AFAIU, If they were the Sonics wouldn't be looking at Oklahoma City among other sites nor is Portland.

    I thought it was obvious, but thanks for elaborating for me. :D It is the "blithely" part that is most annoying, if you have some valid reasons (which people who post this stuff rarely have) then let's hear them.

    I dunno, the contraction/moving thread is like a rite of passage for some new posters I guess, as if no one has ever thought of this stuff before.

    I think every team in the Original Six should move to the South

    Toronto Maple Leafs are now the Fort Myers Ice Bladez
    Montreal Canadiens are now the Alabama Slammaz
    Boston Bruins would be the Houston Ice Texanz
    New York Rangers are now the Yuma Illegals
    Detroit Redwings would be Daytona Ice Racers

    and you'd have a riot in at least all five cities, you mentioned Patrick, esp. Montreal, Toronto & Detroit

    I'm pretty sure he was being what some would call sarcastic.

    I could live with riots, they aren't my team so that makes it okay to talk about moving them.

    There hasn't been a good riot in a long time so maybe Patrick is on to something.

    I don't think Toronto or Detroit fans would share that sentiment, jkr, much less Montreal or Boston
     
  19. You'd be wrong.

    Every Toronto fan knows he was being sarcastic. Give me a break. The fact you couldn't detect sarcasm in Patrick's post is absolutely amazing.

    I wasn't talking about Toronto fans, I was specifically talking Detroit fans there TU, SOME take the Wings quite seriously in Michigan as do some Toronto fans as they take anything in Michigan quite seriously almost religiously as they do in Montreal.

    You'd think suggesting Alabama Slammaz as a team name would've made it obvious, but I guess not.

    I thought adding "Ice" or "Z" instead of "S" at the end of names would make it obvious.
