As has been said, there is only a single failure on a southern team on his watch.

How do people not understand that without expansion into markets that are not traditional hockey markets, you will never see those big TV deals. You need to expand and grow if you want prime time TV slots. Minnesota, Colorado, San Jose have all been massive success stories, stories that have allowed bettman to put forth bigger proposals towards TV companies.

Why bother with 3 more teams in Canada to a TV company, they already watch the games anyway.
