Contract four of them, move two to Quebec and Hamilton, and expand every roster by three spots. It'll never happen, but that's what we need.
We will never know. And you are probably right. But it would be kinda cool to have teams in Vegas and Alaska as they both presumably could get exposure in a different/better way (and loyal followings as being the only pro sports team in both locations) than some of the cities now entertaining the league. Halifax is a long shot, but them Canadians are nuts about their sport so I dunno i this would not work better than Florida/Columbus. Happy Holidays btw!
