It opens more jobs for hockey people and everyday folk as well.

The downside would be further diluting the talent across the league. And no one knows how the new teams and cities would do financially. And the league is having issues sustaining a 30 team league as it is.

No way they contract. And relocation is frowned upon.

IMO, they will eventually expand by at least two. There's a lot of potential revenue to be had that the NHL may just not hold back.
Doesn't dilution of talent lead to higher scoring races from star players? That could turn into a good marketing tool for the NHL.
