Sure, but why put Markham and Hamilton in the East ahead of DET and CBJ? You could put Hamilton and/or Markham in the West. After 80+ years without an NHL team, the NHL West is a hell of a lot better than the AHL West.

I can tell you right now and he has lost a lot of wealth, but Jim Balsillie won't be approved by they owners. He didn't just try to backdoor Bettman, he went after a group of people in the owners that will now never let him be a part of their group at least not anytime soon and not by the number of votes he would need.
