Just imagine. Ontario-based Steven Stamkos to lead a franchise at Hamilton/Markham and Quebec-based Jonathan Huberdeau to lead the franchise at Quebec. Not to Mention that Stamkos is from Markham, but I still see Hamilton as a better fit.
Two teams with operating loss over 10 million dollars a year transfers to a Canadian lucrative hockey market.
Then move that Phoenix (operating loss of over 20 million a year) to Seattle, to at least even Hockey market.
NHL would absolutely flourish financially after those moves.
Could be, but Tampa is doing very well, has a strong owner, and a pretty good fanbase of their own, along with the transplants. I doubt they are going anywhere anytime soon. Not sure on the Florida situation.
