How does removing hockey from the South save the game? By completely ignoring a huge potential market, the NHL does themselves no good. Why not include TB in that group? They are from the South too. Oh, it's because they've won a cup. Give teams like Nashville and Atlanta a chance to develop into maturity before calling for their heads. Teams like Nashville, Florida, and Atlanta have very bright futures and could be very successful teams. What better way to a build a fanbase out of nothing than to put a winner in a non-traditional market.
It's win-win situation for both players and owners. The inclusion of a massive market like the South has the ability to bring in big streams of revenue allowing players to be paid more while also allowing for more jobs.
