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.
Look what you did
Is this who you wanted me to be?
Well it's not me
It's going to be catastrophic for the NHL if both the Red Wings and the Avalanche lose in the first round, considering that none of the other teams have the national presence both of those teams do, so the ratings would probably be in the shitter.
