Heaven forbid the NHL accept an owner that actually has money and wants a team.

Also, heaven forbid the NHL from putting a team in a city that will actually go to games and support the team.

Let's be honest, Quebec and Winnipeg lost their teams because they couldn't make a go of it. I am not sure that putting teams back there makes any sense.

Hamilton, however, has never gotten the chance and I think putting a team there makes sense. Southern Ontario is ripe for another hockey team and there would be no problem generating support for the team.

I think the general Toronto area probably could support two teams without much trouble. I don't know how much the Leafs and Sabres would like the idea, though.

Balsillie, on the other hand, is a liar and a charlatan who isn't interested in what's best for the NHL and thinks its rules don't apply to him. He's the Ontarian Clay Bennett.

I didn't get to see the Kings/Panthers game down here in Florida so no comment. You are right though, the Panthers suck. Keenan is doing pretty good though, he has as many wins in 13 games that Sutter had in 24.
