Yeah, I'm getting senile in my old age. But really out of all of those teams they've only created one consistently good team.

Obviously the conditions will be better than those the early expansion teams operated under but the player supply is spread so thin right now there's no way for these teams NOT to be awful. I guess Toronto 2 could buy its way into being decent, but not initially.

Putting an expansion team in Quebec is crazy, but they don't do expansion to be forward-looking, they do it because they want their money now.
