I think the key to establishing an Elite NHL would be to place teams in major US markets, capital cities, and other cosmopolitan locations. By limiting markets, you would create a niche sport and higher demand by limiting access to the well-heeled customer.

New York, Boston. Los Angeles, Chicago, Montreal Washington Ottawa, Detroit, Dallas, and Miami.

Toronto would then be the flagship franchise of a Canadian League. They could compete for the Stanley Trophy (sponsored by Stanley Tools naturally) in keeping with their blue-collar image.
