Interesting to see the early rumbles of an expansion to Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Also, this sentiment is new to my ears:
"The war years retarded the development of hockey players but the governors feel that this predicament is rapidly diminishing and in the foreseeable future available players of NHL calibre will make expansion not only feasible but practical." -- from the official announcement of interest by the Board of Governors
Interesting that, a full 15 years after the war, the Governors were just beginning to feel that the talent pool had been replenished. I've never heard that particular rationale for keeping the league at 6 teams for so long.
