Not to mention I think as soon as Edmonton gets their new arena they will probably get an additional influx of new concerts, and probably a yearly UFC event
Wake up. Demographics are changing. Hockey was never always the most popular sport, even in Canada. If this league crashes what makes you think Hockey will be given another shot? It shows the sport is not viable. More kids in Canada play soccer, hell hockey registration is slower the the rate of growth according to the last census.
