Yes there is room to grow the league, but not in areas where people A) do not care about hockey at all, or B) can't play hockey

you grow hockey by getting youth interested and playing the sport. they are the ones who go on to buy tickets later in life and watch on tv, buy merch, etc. You need to garner interest in the sport itself if you intend to grow the sport and increase a fanbase. You can't do this in Nashville. It's failed, time to move on.

...maybe when Raleigh moves they can try this "growing" experiment in a market that has potential, but for now "diverting fans in Southern Ontario" will at least be taking the profitable route rather than leading this franchise out to slaughter (e.g. KC, Vegas, etc.)
