Yes you can.

The Hartford market was always too small to really succed. I feel bad about saying it, but there's no way on God's green earth that the NHL will ever return to Connecticut again. You'd need to be the Green Bay Packers to even have a chance, and while it's easy to remember the good times after the team is gone, the Whalers were never the Green Bay Packers.
You should consider Boston had much of the same attendance issues in the mid 90s
Hartford has more money. Columbus was a college town. The TV markets cross each other out.

If we had Pittsburgh, Detroit and Chicago We didn't need another team there, but whats done is done.
