The problems that there are more "struggling" teams than remaining suitable markets. Right now Quebec and Toronto 2 lead the pack then Seattle. Everything else is a lateral move and all it does is reset the clock for " but we are a new market, we need more time"
Eventually I think that contraction of some of these teams is inevitable, especially with the rumors of expasion that will certainly fill the two "stable" markets. Or the league could dissolve and reform and leave some of the owners holding the bag.
