I'd appreciate it if in the future you wouldn't attempt to define for others what it is that I mean. What I believe is that the NHL should be located only in markets largely able to sustain themselves on their own - versus some now that only survive by annually taxing other capable markets. If that eventually resulted in the relocation of a few existing teams from the US and into Canada, so be it. If it means moving the Phoenix franchise to Seattle at the same time then I'm all for that as well.
