Honestly, I believe that with the right ownership, and (reasonablly sized) market can support an NHL team. Including Phoenix. The question is, at what point does the cost of getting it to a hockey market outweigh the benefit?

Cities I think can support teams: Quebec City, Markham/Toronto/whatever, Seattle, Houston, Milwaukee, Kansas City
