How about putting TAXPAYERS money behind these teams you want to keep in these cities so badly.Ifr it's such a quality of life issue for the teams to remain in the city why not back it up with tax dollars and other breaks and incentives that could put them more on equal footing with the teams in the US who recieve such incentives.

When the Habs pay more in property tax on their building then ALL 24 teams in the US combined I really have no sympathy for the "poor Canada" arguement.
I would agree with your argument if Forsberg was whining about losing a whopping $30 000 for a few games out of his $11 M contract.
