Without much thought........Tampa, Nashville, Columbus would still be in my NHL.

-I think if the NHL had waited out Winnipeg, things would have worked out.
-I'm lean slightly towards Hartford doing better in today's NHL climate then Carolina. Who knows how a new arena could have turned out, and the market was still bidding for Predators as recently as 2007.
-I know Florida earns an overall profit based on how that arena is run, but that does not make me think it's a good hockey market. I would have tried DAMN HARD to convince Portland, Seattle, or Houston to take on that team instead.

I'd have put them in the following places.

Carolina - Raleigh, NC
Tampa Bay - Tampa, FL
Florida - Miami, FL metro area
Nashville - Nashville, TN
Phoenix - Phoenix, AZ
Columbus - Columbus, OH

Let's see:

Phoenix, Phoenix, Phoenix, Phoenix, Phoenix, Phoenix and Phoenix.

Colossal disaster of a relocation. Hopefully once they relocate, that lesson will have been learned and never repeated again.

Unless this has something to do with actual business of hockey, there's nothing to see here.
