O-6 is a farce. They did more damage to the league in the long run than good. While other leagues were building up tradition, laying the foundation of a nationwide league, the 0-6 put together 25 years of zero growth for the NHL. There were other cities that wanted in, but the league owners wouldn't let them, it's a shame that such a great sport and league had to be set back 25 years.

Not to say that the hockey wasn't great, the teams were great and the players were great. But you have to look at the negative side of the era as well.

Very untrue. The SIX were the only reason for expansion to happen when it did. There were other factors for zero growth in those 25 years, mainly World War II. Now granted the NHL owners in those days were very conservative and were aprhensive about expansion. In fact there is to many teams in this league now who aren't making money and the solid franchises having to bail them out.

Rory Block, Part 2
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

the nhl has expanded too much. markets like nashville don't have the fan base to support an nhl team. that's why the league is in the shape it's in. it's too big.
