Might as well get rid of New Jersey too. I mean, if they weren't a good team, why would they exist? They aren't a non-traditional market so they won't be expanding the sport. They don't have a good fanbase or really anything of note, other than a great GM. Why not put them on the chopping block before you eliminate teams that will grow the sport into necessary markets (read: the south). In fact, let's just do what should have been done years ago and move Lamariello to Nashville along with Elias, Madden and Neidermeyer (would take Broduer but he makes too much compared to Vokoun). That would be better for hockey. It eliminates a needless team, helps produce a winner in a non-traditional market which will help the sport grow in Nashville. After years of successful hockey, Nashville will eventually become a hockey town and New Jersey will be an afterthought.
