  1. Would it be possible to dump the NHL all together and start up a new league with all the same owners and buildings but different team names? This has been one floating around for a while. To those who don't know, the NHL was onced named the NHA when they did this exact thing, I believe in the early 1900's.

    Yeah, it's been "floating around." Time to flush it, though.

    I think such a thing would be illegal, because of the implications of playing with replacement players.

    However, seeing as how the NHL is one of the oldest leagues in the USA, I'd find it very, very unlikely that they would completely start a new league devoid of their past. PR Nightmare

    and wwe's ratings slump is definitely due to the name change and not the stale story lines. :D
