That's a huge chunk of the US landscape that you think should be 'tierra non-grata' to the NHL. Let's see, how many teams is that that you'd be cutting out of the League:
- 3 California teams
- Phoenix
- Dallas
- St. Louis
- Nashville
- Atlanta
- 2 Florida teams
- Carolina
- Washington
with Philadelphia, Colorado, and Columbus being borderline (literally).
That's 15 teams, if you count the "borderline" ones... HALF the League.
Using your list, you need to include Pittsburgh.

The people living in St. Louis, Philly, Denver, Pittsburgh, Columbus and Washington will be thrilled to learn they are in the Sunbelt. Their economic problems are over!

The lack of understanding of the US and it's geography on this board is simply amazing!
