Play for the stanley cup or the...what are they gonna name their trophy anyway.

Best case scenario for them...NHL lockout...they get some good NHLers to play for them for a season and get a semi-fan base.

the likely scenario...they get a few legit-name nhlers, i think eric lindros could go, they play for a few years, about as popular as the ahl...possibly

My opinion is...any team that has its pick of cities to start a franchise and picks birmingham alabama, while ignoring the three big markets (bos, phi, nyc)...is ran by idiots and will flop.
