Oversized CFL?

The league would still have 22 American teams! More than 2/3 of the league's teams would still be located in the United States!

The NHL wants to be for sure in the Big 4 and while Canadians may think that there's a Big 4, about 1/3 of Americans don't, I don't want to make that worse, since I have to live here....
again, money is a thing, but it's not the ONLY thing.
The same Canadians that are so pro Quebec and all the other reasonable markets in Canada that use the money arguement, would rip a Raptor or a Blue Jay star (this could happen to Lawrie if he turns out to be the superstar I think he will be in 5 years or less) for signing with the Yankees or something like that since, that's where the money is. I find it ironic.
Both the Raptors and Blue Jays have plenty of money to match anything that the Yankees, Red Sox, Lakers, or Knicks offer.

If a star decides to leave, it is for other reasons entirely.
