According to this article it's hardly bigger than the NHL. And looks like it's even less profitable:

And everyone talking about the NHL collapsing and reforming as NHL II...same 29 owners - what's going to change in terms of labour relations? Are you going to tell Jacobs or whoever the league boogeyman is supposed to be that they can't play? And there's no way that new league hits the ground running - everything is back to square 1 - player contracts, TV deals, sponsors, etc.

It's difficult to conceive of a new NHL being successful in the short- or medium- term.
Nice Try. Barclays has 20 teams. The NHL thirty. All Barclays teams are making money. Having 10 more teams(all of which lose money) is a deal breaker.
