If the NHL comes back, there has to be a big expansion.

As for expansion itself, I'd be fascinated by the process in the social media age. No one has done it yet, and only the return of the Jets has happened with relocation in the height of social media. But that doesn't mean they should do it.
There are some teams with awful goaltending right now. Moving 6 back-ups into starting roles will be awful. 6 more teams will have to suffer like Leafs fans have the last 5 years.
Having more teams and spots doesn't mean there are more ''good'' players it just means the standards for NHL players drop, leading to a diluted talent pool, empty arenas, poor tv ratings, and no positive impact at all. What has Columbus done for the NHL? land a big tv deal? LOL no, improve the quality of hockey? nope complete opposite. As a fan I see no positives coming from expansion.
