Absolutely just not plausible for a multitude of reasons.
Excluding the Maple Leafs, Rangers, Canadiens, Oilers and Canucks... last year you had 25 teams that posted a loss of $86 million. The majority of the teams in the 30-team league are losing money and you want to add 10 teams. Not only that, but make the NHL a global league?
Travel expenses and time differences make your proposition very close to impossible. We complain as Red Wing fans when we have to fly to a west coast road trip. Imagine having a game in Russia then turning around and having a game in LA? Talk about a pain in the ass.
