Is it time to remove the concept of a "location agreement" from the NHL? Given that Toronto(GTA) has 10x the population of an Edmonton or Calgary, allowing a free market move or expansion into Toronto would improve league revenues, and reduce ticket prices, parking, board advertising, in TO. This would be good for the fans, as the increased competition should lower ticket costs. It would be good for local businesses, as it would decrease marketing costs, and provide more local employment. It would be good for the players, increasing revenues, which would improve the share. It would be good for the other 29 owners. As the current NHL is composed of 30 equal partners, would it not make more sense to remove the location agreement than contract teams?
