That, and a un-dilution of talent, both on-ice and front-office.
PS My Euro team is GNK Dinamo Zagreb - so you're wrong on that point, too.
Spot on. I just don't get why people want to dilute the game even further. The league has a number of weak owners who will never help to grow the game as it is. I would be much more in favor of fewer but stronger teams. People like to latch on to greatness and greatness is severely lacking in a lot of existing franchises. Trying to market the game with a bunch of garbage teams in apathetic markets is a fool's errand. As long as Bettman is guiding the strategy the NHL will struggle.
