With these markets Carolina ,Tampa Bay, Florida, Nashville, Phoenix, Columbus. Where would you put these teams?

I'm sure this will go over well...

Without much thought........Tampa, Nashville, Columbus would still be in my NHL.

-I think if the NHL had waited out Winnipeg, things would have worked out.
-I'm lean slightly towards Hartford doing better in today's NHL climate then Carolina. Who knows how a new arena could have turned out, and the market was still bidding for Predators as recently as 2007.
-I know Florida earns an overall profit based on how that arena is run, but that does not make me think it's a good hockey market. I would have tried DAMN HARD to convince Portland, Seattle, or Houston to take on that team instead.

I'd have put them in the following places.

Carolina - Raleigh, NC
Tampa Bay - Tampa, FL
Florida - Miami, FL metro area
Nashville - Nashville, TN
Phoenix - Phoenix, AZ
Columbus - Columbus, OH

Let's see:

Phoenix, Phoenix, Phoenix, Phoenix, Phoenix, Phoenix and Phoenix.

Colossal disaster of a relocation. Hopefully once they relocate, that lesson will have been learned and never repeated again.

Unless this has something to do with actual business of hockey, there's nothing to see here.
