Winnipeg doesn't move to Phoenix
Hartford doesn't move to Carolina
We expand to Dallas instead of Nashville
We expand to Hamilton instead of Atlanta
We expand to Milwaukee instead of Columbus
We expand to Seattle instead of Minnesota
The rapid southern expansion was a failure. That's not even debatable at this point.
Had the NHL gotten the cap they wanted back in 94-95, before salaries started to skyrocket, maybe some of those teams don't move. Although 3 of the teams that moved were WHA teams, which were second class citizens from the moment they entered the league.
