Calgary
Columbus
Dallas
Florida
Minnesota
Nashville
New York Islanders
Phoenix
San Jose

That would leave these teams which will never be cut:

Boston
Buffalo
Carolina
Chicago
Colorado
Detroit
Edmonton
Los Angeles
Montreal
New Jersey
New York
Ottawa
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
St. Louis
Tampa Bay
Toronto
Vancouver
Washington
Winnipeg
Get rid of Minnesota which is a great sports market and with their new acquisitions in Parise and Suter pushing to go to the next level over Phoenix?

Personally, I think the most the league could handle is 32 before the league becomes too diluted. I'd open expansion teams in Quebec and Seattle. If Phoenix's financial problems were still to continue to the end of their lease or after a decent amount of time has passed, then move them to either Hartford or Austin.
