Guys, don't kill the meme, it could be a good thread title if we get an expansion team

I have mixed feelings about whether PKP would get into a bidding war for an expansion team. I don't think it's relevant that he didn't overbid for the Habs. Back then the Thrashers, Coyotes, Isles and perhaps the Lightning (don't quite remember the timeline) were realistic relocation targets, so he could afford to pass on the Habs as his network wasn't quite ready either. Now, if the Coyotes issues is settled somehow (Arizona or Seattle), expansion is the end of the line so he may need to be aggressive.

On the other hand, bidding against RDS/Bell for Habs TV rights might prove cheaper than going up against Markham or wherever. But the again, RDS without the Habs probably isn't worth much so it wouldn't be that cheap.
