I sort of thought maybe that way of thinking might be correct until I saw Bettmans face today. You can tell he really hates the idea of teams going to Canada, I know it's been said before, but today confirmed it.

So even if QC gets the Coyotes next year (and it's really not guarenteed) that may put Hamilton next in line. If it does put Hamilton next, then you have to think of all the obstacles Bettman will put up just to stop it.

Do I think putting a team in Hamilton would be smart? Oh yes... yes, yes, yes, absolutely. Does it mean it will be happening in the next 5-7 years? Really doubt it mate. Try 10-15 years.
