Why are there teams in Nashville, Atlanta, Phoenix, Tampa Bay, and San Jose but none in towns like Milwaukee, Quebec City, Winnipeg, Seattle, etc.

Sense, this makes none.

Elaborate. I don't follow the sport except for the odd playoff game.

I do know Seattle won one of the first Stanley Cups and Portland had a team that advanced to the finals.

This was in like WW1 though lolololol.

Betman's pitch when he first became commissioner was that hockey in the south could work. That was his main idea for the future. He will stick to it until the bitter end.

^ Bettman's a douche

Although I will say San Jose surprisingly has a large dedicated fan base considering the team friggin chokes in the playoff every year despite always finishing top 3 in standings

Winnipeg Jets will come back.

Hockey in phoenix is pretty much done. Bettman also talked about Quebec getting a team back through relocation today on CBC, he said this would happen only if the city agreed to build a future new arena.

haha no idea. I used to like Goodell but he has since disappointed me...

nobody on here really follows the CFL but I was a big fan of Tom Wright. He is now in charge of representing mma/ufc in Ontario.

Bettmans all about making the owners rich. Dude has no hockey knowledge. Someone should assassinate him.

I was hoping to god that MacLean would punch Bettman tonight on air. Perhaps Don Cherry could jump in from behind the set and help strangle him.
