What kills me is this notion that a larger population = growth...That may be if it were an NFL franchise looking to re-locate to a city such as Los Angeles, but we're talking hockey here.
Simple as this... If you put an NHL franchise in Canada somewhere, people will come. That will not be the problem by any means.
These teams have been there now for a a decade or more; many of the non-traditional markets continue to lose $$$.
If the BOG, and Bettman want to rid themselves of these welfare cases - then a few re-locations to the Canadian cities would be a step in the right direction.
