Florida and Nashville. No chance I'd cut a Canadian squad.

the problem I have with this poll is that you HAVE to eliminate a Canadian team. Curious why there isnt 1 question with 10 answers with your choice for multiple answers. Definately would make more sense.

results were how I expected to see them. (I voted Vancouver and Phoenix). Tjhough if it were an option, Id vote Anaheim.


Haha, I voted for the two top teams without even trying... Edmonton and Florida.

Florida is non-existent, although I'd hate to discredit Edmonton's past cups or history. I will say it was much harder to choose a Canadian team than it was an American one.

I could've chosen like 5 American teams we don't need.

I picked San Jose and Ottawa. Neither franchise has one a Cup and they are redundant as far as state/province representation.

And I agree it was difficult choosing a Canadian team. I think the Panthers and Thrashers should go and TB should stay for any remaining southern fans, and they have a Cup. I like Nashville and think that they and the Islanders could succeed in drawing fans if they could succeed on the ice.

There is no reason for a team in LA, Anaheim, and Phoenix considering their proximity. I'd say two should go but the Ducks have a Cup and the Kings are part of the first expansion so I feel that should garner them some respect.

Washington has a bunch of bandwagon fans, and Columbus has a lot of transplanted Wings fans, but both had high viewership in the playoffs so their markets aren't necessarily bad, just sick of losing.

1- Even with guys like Kovalchuk and Ovechkin, the thrashers and caps can't even have a sell-out crowd and that's a shame. 2- The isles play in a s***ty arena so if they don't built in a new one, they will probably move.
3- Columbus has a good fanbase who are just sick of losing and REALLY wants to see action in April

But if there's a team who needs to go, it's the FLORIDA PANTHERS: The ppl who live here don't even care or know what is hockey.

As for the canadian team, the team who needs to go is......THE OTTAWA SENATORS: This is the only canadian team who once draw less than 10 000 ppl in a season (1994-95) and I agree with chunkylover, they are redundant as a province representation.

I'd eliminate or move Phoenix, Florida and Anaheim. No Canadian teams would be gone.

I really don't understand how anybody in their right mind would want to get rid of Calgary.

A new Lemieux-McCarty fight, as seen by internet forum posters.

Lemieux cheapshots a player with his walker, drawing the ire of D-Mac, who hobbles over. They draw their canes, salute, and cross them, then proceed to repeatedly whack eachother over the heads while hanging onto the bench with their other hands for balance. D-Mac then hits Lemieux's hip, which gives out, Lemieux feebly falls to the ground, crumpling as D-Mac continues to land barely noticeable Yoda-esque cane strikes. Lemieux's age begins catching up to him, crying "what a world, what a world..!" as he melts into a puddle of goo.

Why just 2, why not more? Any teams that cannot be supported by the local fans or outside sales. Why should Successful teams have to pitch into a pool that makes the league watered down and mediocre? I know all this has been talked about before, but eventually the cap which is to keep teams viable that cannot float on their own around and take away from teams and fans that want it more is going to wreck hockey. I used to love football, baseball etc... but those leagues do not even mildly interst me anymore, every year mostly a bunch of washed out teams who change players as often as a baby's diaper...

Yes an NHL team in Milwaukee!!!!!!!!!!!!! just make sure they are in the same division as the Wings so I do not have to drive for 8 hours to see a game...

Admirals are fun to watch... but not as much as the Wings.

Why in the world would we want to eliminate a Canadian team?

I picked Montreal. laugh.gif

Canada is hockey.

Even when their teams suck, I wouldnt want to get rid of them.
