Btw Calgary and Edmonton are boring and only have an annual GDP growth of 10%...your american cities are doing so much better then that...oh wait...no they don't.

Ottawa is only the capital of the second biggest country on earth but I guess that's not enough to deserve a pro-franchise of said country national sport, right ?

And I would like to see another Canadian team or two; however to not invest heavily in areas that have so much potential wealth is silly. That is why there are teams in California, Florida, Atlanta. If it offends your dignified sensibilities too bad. I would be all for a 32 team league; 4 divisions of 8 adding two canadian teams...

It is also silly to debase teams such as Edmonton or Calgary as "boring". True hockey fans watch such games as the battle of Alberta, and I personally still tune into Edmonton-Dallas as I have since the late 1990's.

As for potential investors; the group listed above is impressive-however I know of not one of them who have offered a concrete bid or signed a letter of intent. I could be wrong though, loved to proven wrong in this instance however.
