I used to think that having an odd number of teams in the NHL in this day and age would be a bad thing, but but more that I've thought about it the more that I've realized that it really wouldn't be that big of a deal. It's not like baseball, where having an odd number of teams is a bad thing given that you play over six out of seven days a week for the most part and have to play on the major vacation days and weekends. Not the case for the NHL, with day(s) off between most games for every team.

32 sounds better than 31 teams-wise, but don't think it'd be that huge of an issue. If anything, adding a team at a time might be in their best interest, as it'd guarantee that the newbies would get a first overall pick versus only a 50% chance if they expanded by two at once.
