IMO, aside from Phoenix, the Islanders were next in line for financial problems but it looks like they have a new home.

I still think there are 4 markets that can support a new team

Toronto (Hamilton, Markham, etc.)
Seattle
Quebec
KC

I would expand to Toronto and Quebec. Both have arenas in place.
Leave Seattle or KC open for a possible relocation for Phoenix, choosing which market does not have the NBA first


Boston
Toronto
Ottawa
Montreal
Quebec
Buffalo
Pittsburgh
Columbus

NYR
NYI
NJD
Washington
Carolina
Tampa
Florida
Philly


Hamilton
Detroit
Chicago
Nashville
Minnisotta
Dallas
St Louis
Winnipeg

Seattle
Colorado
Vancouver
San Jose
Anaheim
LA
Edmonton
Calgary
I like the 4 divisions/conferences.. but i'd switch pitt with philly only for selfish reasons haha. Those games are always fun then add them playing what 2 or 3 more times a season then normal.
