to watch the SCF, we seem to manage. Yeah, expanding to more base markets (Pacific Northwest, Wisconsin, Manitoba, Quebec, Southern Ontario) would get my vote for smarter expansion strategy, but that ship has gone and sailed. We're in the south now and we should be for the long haul-
you don't give fans a taste of the NHL with bad management and poor results than rip it away without leaving many disgruntled and disenchanted with it.
But unless I'm mistaken the NHL never decided they wanted to rip the Thrashers from Atlanta. The old ownership group wanted to sell the team and the NHL was unable to find a qualified buyer who would keep the team in Atlanta.
