I don't give a crap if Winnipeg comes back either. For me, it changes absolutely nothing other than the curiosity of seeing a new hockey jersey.
But calling it a lateral move is utterly retarded.
No, you have no idea, but keep on pretending Winnipeg is a great move. You only want a new hockey jersey, but I'm the retarded one? Priceless.
So, replacing one team that makes no money and actually pretty much goes bankrupt for another that will at least break even (which means about 30M more for the league) is a lateral move to you??? Geez, don't go into business..
lol, replacing a team that loses money, for one that could break even = a great business move in your mind? Thanks for the business tip... the irony here is unbelievable.
Expanding in the States is one thing. Expanding in non-hockey markets like ATL, FLA or PHX is another. There's a reason why most of these places can't fill up their arenas. But hey, I'm sure you think that doesn't matter, after all, money grows on trees in the States!
If the Panthers would ice a team, spend some money, they would be fine as well. I don't agree they need two teams, but they have made it this long, plus they have a 5% corporate tax rate, and no ndividual income tax, thats a big difference in attracting business, and players.
I noticed you left Nashville off the list, because you probably thought hockey would never work there. What about California? Isn't that just as ridiculous in your mind? Its non-traditional in every sense of the term.
If you feel Winnipeg is a draw, whether it be for players, or TV ratings.. you are wrong. I'm not sure a small market team is the right answer, long term, for the NHL..
Short term the league makes a ton of money, thats what matters most to them.
