NHL-Expansion?

30 teams in the NHL: 14 in the WEST, 16 in the EAST..... Seems balanced, no? But was this planned, or an accident?
I think it was planned. Betman wants expansion, but where to? Seattle seems like that's where he's leading to, but then they need a team in the middle of the US or central Canada.... Saskatchewan? Regina? Which Canadian city would be a great fit in the NHL?
*Note: 1 most be in the line of Pacific and the other in the middle of North America.

It ends in 2015. It will be looked at again by 2015. So if there is expansion, they can shift teams around again. It is only a 2 season plan currently.

Ok, but if you could expand to a place, and this realignment would continue, who would you choose?

Seattle and Kansas City... but there is no way I would let this realignment continue if I were an owner. There is too much RS in Quebec to bypass. I think, not 100% sure, that PKP pissed off a few people. A few of those pissed off people are in Bell, CBC and Rogers (You know, the guys who own the NHL rights in Canada)... so it's possible the cigar smokers are trying to block a QC expansion unless PKP will conform to not asking for TV rights of QC to his TVA network. (TVA just signed one of RDS's best commentators)

There's a lot of crap going on behind the scenes to get a team back in QC. Hell... even talks of Brian Mulroney being involved with a group talking to NHL.
