If we put all the teams in "solid hockey markets" how are you going to grow the game? If the league stopped caring or never cared about the "small hockey market" then Gretzky would never had gone to LA.

I already get tired of people saying "there's a lockout?" and saying things like they've never heard of hockey. If we try to grow the sport it will help in the LONG run. Why have a bunch of teams in Canada when there's 300 million people in the united states and most of them just need to experience the game and they'll be hooked.
And the equivalent to that statement would be... why have a bunch of teams in the Sunbelt when the people there would rather watch cars driving around in circles?

I know the "Grow the Game!" argument is popular among Sunbelt fans (for obvious reasons) but it is no less based in emotion than "Canadian Game!" argument that we so often around here. It is based in selfishness and entitlement rather than facts.
