    Its not a matter of a better hockey market but the Eastern Seaboard is loaded w/ teams in order to have 13 out west to go w/ 13 in the East someone had to go......
    especailly since im biased towards wanting Hartford(so the Bruins have someone to beat up on like the good ole days :yo: )

    As a Hab fan, I would love to see a team in Quebec City 'cause it was so fun to hate them! :)

    But we have to be realistic! The last Quebec Nordiques salaries total was 16 Millions!!!! And they were forced to leave!! No way Quebec City can have a team again, except if it's minor league or in a C division in a european model pro league. (I would love to see North American pro hockey adopt that model, tho.)

    Makes as much sense as all the contraction scenarios around here, especially when people give no rationale for which teams get to stay and which have to go.

    This stuff should go on the Fantasy Board as far as I'm concerned.

    I agree, we should just have one thread devoted to bashing the southern teams.

    You want to give Hartford a team, Quebec and Winnipeg teams, New York 2 teams but not Philadelphia, St. Louis or LA? Please.


    Whoops...and why did you put 2 teams in Germany, but Finland, Sweden and Czech Republic only get 1 and Slovakia and Latvia don't get any?

    That would be one loooooong thread! ;) I envision a nice "contraction thread" dumping ground...

    That sounds like a league where the teams have names like "Orlando Xtreme" and "Charlotte Bladezzz"

    Heck, while we're at it, let's name Vince McMahon commissioner!
