We know the Islanders will begin making money with the move to Barclays, we know that.

but what about the other teams that are still in the red?

What about Seattle not being ready until 2015?

What about Conference Realignment?

I have too many damn questions and no more answers!
Expansion would likely be to Quebec and Toronto timed to coincide with the new Canadian tv deals to maximize what the league can get from those, alignment would be the 4 conferences proposed previously (with slight changes) each split into two 4-team divisions. The two Toronto teams split with each in different conferences to maximize canadian tv dollars by ensuring each teams plays a Toronto based teams at least 4 times a season and comes into the market at least twice. Likely new Toronto goes to Central conference and Columbus moves over to the Atlantic with Quebec going to the northeast.

Seattle would get the Coyotes if that fall through
