Or if the League is seen to be retrenching into Canadian markets, assuming anything more than 1 more expansion or relocation to a Canadian market.
Continuing from the point I made in my previous post... The League can theoretically support any reasonable number of teams it wishes, as long as it creates an economic system suited to the vast majority of those teams and doesn't cater an economic structure to a rich few teams at the top.
