Seriously, in DC there are 2 MASNs (both in HD although MASN2 is still an overflow channel), Comcast Sports Net and an alternate station for it. The only time FS North has an alternate station is for the one or two Gophers first round games which conflict with the Wild or Wolves.
Up until recently the issue has been Comcast, not FSN. Comcast waited for quite a while to make the full switch to digital (that they're working on now, and likely mostly done with). Comcast didn't have the bandwidth available at a reasonable rate for FSN to pursue.

Now that Comcast isn't going to carry analog channels, there's a good chance we'll see quite a few channels expand further, and FSN has already expressed that they're working on FSN2. It may well be ready before the season starts, it may well take longer... We're stuck in "wait and see" mode.
