Bettman is seemingly trying to ruin to NHL and is doing a great job, we shoudl just boot his @$$ like the NBA did.

He just cares about southern united states, but the funny thing is that THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT HOCKEY!!!!!! unless the sport ends with the word BALL the southern states could care less. They wait around after the third period of the 4th quarter to start.

An NHL franchise would make money big time in CANADA and would generate way more revenue. Its just a stupid decision financially to keep going into the states southern wise. Bettman is just an ignorant jerk and I hate him.
I BOO him at home along with everyone else.


Hockey is canada's game, so let us have more than 6 of 30 teams. You had no problem taking our teams and putting them american.

The population of Canada will NEVER allow them to compete w/america for number of teams...

Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa,
Any of those cites (I think) are smaller than any american market.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...reas_in_Canada

They've put teams in basically every city they can, unless you think it's viable to put teams in cities w/less than a million people....
