32 teams would be dream scenario IMO for everyone
- More $$$ for Owners
- More jobs for players
- 2 new markets for excitement and expanding revenue of league
I'm not going to claim to be a business of financial expert on the NHL, but...
When you have two teams struggling as bad as the Coyotes and Islanders, you really want to add 2 more teams? Not to mention the Panthers are practically giving away season tickets, and they have a playoff caliber team. What happens if they decline and start to suck again?
What happens if the Jackets don't improve, and they lose even more fans?
Yeah, I know the Islanders are moving to Brooklyn... but I'm not sold on that turning around their attendance.
