If the NHL is crying about losing money then why on earth aren't they moving these money losing teams to markets they know will succeed? Nobody is expecting the Canadian dollar to do a nosedive anytime soon, so I don't know why Quebec city isn't first in line.
The owners are saying that they don't want to up the revenue sharing too much, but it sounds like they're going to have to do it. They're going to have more teams to share revenue with if they end up moving a team to some market which has 90% casual fans.
The Kings share a building with two NBA teams. The Blackhawks share a building. So do the Rangers. That's all I can think of off the top of my head, but I'd bet there's more.
