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.
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.
First, it's an extra Canadian team which can't hurt because hockey is a Canadian sport; second, as the population of Manitoba Winnipeg increases the support will increase - you cannot say the same for an American team in a southern climate where there is no ice hockey.
