I wonder what teams would comprise all the western divisions then, cause there will be a shuffle effect which i guess would all depend on geography.

If a team moves to Southern Ontario it's most likely not Hamilton but rather the Kitchener/Cambridge area, for what it's worth.

Wow , touchy arent we?

Since Montreal had a great record against the West, we should move there.

If they move to hamilton:
1) Need to make copps much bigger (or build a whole new stadium)
2) Screw over the Bulldogs

However, that may depend on how close it is to the GTA.

I hate to say it, but I like a lot of other habs fans are fed up with this circus.

habs will never be winners because they will never get the best head coach available, and they will not be able to sign the best FA'a available, and they never will be bad enough to draft high enough to make their own superstar.

They will be stuck in a cycle of a player developmental team with no end in site.

I have hope that it will change, but sadly i don't see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Let's cut the bull. The ONLY reason UFAs don't sign here is the MONEY. Taxation is through the roof and players net pay becomes a huge factor. That's what it's all about. Blame our wonderful provincial government.

Moyes cannot take any of the money, he is getting No equity and has been removed of all authoritative decisions for the Coyotes

Think of it this way, Hamilton is 200 miles from Detroit. Not too bad. Well Montreal is 3,000 miles from LA. Now tell me how Detroit is in LA's conference? Makes no sense. It's the equivalent of Colorado being in the East

Agreed, eventhough I hated them I need to see NHL hockey again. Exhibition games and the moose just dosn't cut it. Probably never gonna happen though

if this were to happen i think its a good time to go with 3 conferences...
there are already teams in the west that should be in the east (Detroit for example)

You could have 10 teams in the west, 10 in the east, and 10 in the middle...

and come playoff time forget the whole 1-2-3 seeding crap...play the 1st overall team against the 16th overall team....2nd against 15th...etc etc

i think this is a good idea, but is it really rational?....seriously do you know how hard it would be to do this, countless meetings with the nhl and nhlpa will not go well, it just wont be done
however it could happen in a few years

Yes, but Detroit is further west than any Eastern team.

sounds like something they'd only really tackle once the CBA expires or if there's a lockout

That's the most plausible layout without other teams moving. (St. Louis would move with Colorado, Edmonton, etc.. and Vancouver would be a pacific team.)

Questions:

1. Would this affect the Bulldogs in any way?
2. What name do you think the team will take. I guessed earlier "The Skulls", but that's because I'm drunk


the Bulldogs are in the last year of a contract with Montreal so who knows what going to happen .


If Jim is indeed bringing the Yotes to Hamiltion then i guess the Bulldogs could become the farm team of the 2nd NHL team in Toronto?

you would think eventually he will get a team...he doesn't give up


i think Jim is in real good position here with this one .

1. the economy is in the DUMP .How big is the line up of guys wanting to buy sport franchises? its SHORT...How big is the line up of wanting to sell ? ITS LONG......

2. 212 million us dollars for a NHL team (in bankruptcy) lets see if he has any competition, im betting he doesnt . So then its upto the court to accept or reject the 212 million which seems like a hard thing to do doesnt it? maybe PHX and bettmen find locals willing to save the Yotes but so darn ironic how the Jets were near failing and they move only to fail 10-11 years later .


Move the team to ONT already its failed 2 times already , the third time is the charm
