I think we need to go to 36

Quebec City
Atlanta*
Houston
Seattle
San Antonio**
Hamilton, ON


* We need to go back to Atlanta. It's the capital of the south. Enough said.

** San Antonio is a fast growing city in the southwest with money and can bring in the parts of the southwest

Houston is self explanatory.
No we don't need to go back to Atlanta. Its failed twice. This pursuit of a big TV contract isn't realistic. We tried and it doesn't happen. Just because there are a lot of people in Atlanta doesn't mean there are fans who will pay NHL prices for hockey. By that logic we should put a team in Mexico City. Its the biggest city in North America.

As for San Antonio, how does their minor league team draw?

Move the Yotes to QC. Expand to Seattle and Southern Ontario (either GTA or Hamilton) and then let the next distressed team move into the other GTA slot.
