The Jets & Nordiques are 2 teams they really wanted to get back and with a very active US expansion over the '90s (and 2000), all Canada got out of it was Ottawa. They want more teams considering how much Canada has grown since 1990. My question... First was Winnipeg, next comes Quebec City. Next after that would be GTA2 obviously, but let's talk theoreticals and say GTA2 gets a team somewhere. Where next? Would there be calls for team #4 in Ontario? Would it be Saskatoon or Regina? Where would there be calls for another Canadian city to get a team? Or would their desire for new (or refurbished) NHL teams be satisfied by then?
From a personal pov, I would like the NHL to go back as it was. It's halfway there. We got Jets back, we still want Nordiques back.

After that, honestly I don't care if there is more Canadian teams. Sure, if NHL expands by 6 teams, I would in all logic expect at least one to be a Canadian team but I would not expect that the next 5 relocations (may that take 50 years) to all land in Canada.
