The only way I can see expansion being possible is if the core economics of the game vastly changed, and the owners used it as a carrot to get the players to sign a CBA to get them there. It's interesting because you do add more players into the mix, and more player employment has to be a good thing for the Union, but long term you'd have to wonder if it would be cutting too much of the pie away to sustain 32 teams and if it really would be better for the 'greater good'.

Is there actual talk of expansion in lockout talks, or is this just a lockout induced, 'we've got nothing else to talk about' article? It's pretty nifty either way.
