If they were able to secure lucrative Canadian & American broadcasting contracts then perhaps, but just looking at that list, I hafta say, Vancouver, Detroit, Boston & Montreal would be up against it, Chicago & Philly questionable. Youd basically have the Rangers & Leafs exchanging Cups every few years I should think, and thats just not gonna cut it for the broadcasters, teams like the Wings & Bruins (can you imagine Jacobs digging that deeply into his pockets?) winding up like the Expo's really. In the dying days of the 06 league, Boston & New York were not the greatest, combination of lousy ownership, bad management, weak farm systems & short pockets. If some sort of alternative league was to pop up with teams in the Southwest, South, Florida, California, Northeast etc, could conceivably kill this so called "Super League", in fact Im certain it would, and we'd be right back to square one again.
