I love #9. I'm Canadian but I'd love to see a European division. Those cities he cites indeed have a lot of hockey fans. I've wondered if the NHL pre-season and season openers in Europe were feelers for expansion. Maybe not yet, but on the horizon.
Strongly study the merits of having NHL teams in Europe. I'd move my six weakest NHL markets to Europe and create a European division. I know people will laugh when reading this, but Iím dead serious. Unlike some southern U.S. markets, you donít have to explain the icing rule to folks in Helsinki, Stockholm, Prague, Zurich, Berlin and Moscow. They love and know the game there. I know there are travel issues that make this less than perfectly ideal, but itís worth it.
