You ever been to a game in Raleigh? I went to a meaningless game in March vs Buffalo last season and the parking lot was packed with tailgaters, almost everyone in the arena had a Canes jersey and it was a pretty strong crowd (16,000ish). I've got no problem with that market.



I'm not really sure what new market could support an NHL team, there aren't enough hockey markets in the league to begin with. Houston or Seattle maybe?
