That doesn't matter. The NHL revenue as a whole is growing. That means interest is growing. At the end of the day American markets have the power to put significantly more money into their teams then Canadian teams. Seriously look at Torontos revenue. Then look at the Yankees, Cowboys, etc.

Even if it means earning less its about growing the game because no sane commissioner would be happy with having the game succeeding outside of the biggest market, the US.

I agree that some places are just plain wrong. Arizona and Ohio are bad hockey states. That said, there isnt many good hockey states but then again very few hockey states exsist. Wisconsin might be able to support one, maybe Washington (state) but not many other places.
