From an economic standpoint adding more teams in Canada makes the most sense. They should be profitable in a shorter period of time than the American teams, which should mean more revenue sharing.
Long term (with the dream of the American TV contract) it makes sense to expand into the US, but it takes a long time to grow the game in these areas.
would you start by moving Nashville to Hamilton?
