You want small small stupid hockey market teams like PHX? This is the result (well combined with UNIONS).
The players dont want these small market teams, its the league that wants these small market teams because they are wanting to force the issue of expanding in the US and not losing markets in 7 or 8 of these teams. Either let them these teams die, relocate with same owners or new ones and try different places with maybe less teams OR players are going to have to make changes that decreases there pockets because a third of team owners simply cant afford the economics others owners can. the Jets seem to be doing fine,
throw a couple more teams in Canada, eliminate a a few teams and go from there, thats the long term solution. What we will do now is simply put a short term solutions on a long term problem of inability to profit in certain markets.
