expansion plans
« on: June 25, 2015, 07:32:45 AM »
So the league is starting a formal expansion process.  The fee will be a nice $500 million just to get the rights to a team.  Don't we have enough teams as it is?  Would that not thin out the talent that's out there right now?  Having said that I would love to see a team in Quebec City.  I loved the rivalry between the Habs and the old Quebec team.

Time passes, things change, the Sens WILL WIN the CUP. 
edit -  Hopefully within my lifetime.......

It's all about greed by the owners. 2 teams x $500 million per team divided by 30 owners = over $33 million per owner.
