Brought Detroit back to the east where it belongs! Wouldn't these changes be great people?

Btw aren't the Islander's located in Queens at the moment? There's rumors that they might move to Brooklyn into that new arena they're constructing for the future Brooklyn "New Jersey" Nets of the NBA.

The Nets and Islanders shared Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum from 1972 to 1977. Financing documents for the arena released in December 2009 indicate that “The New York Islanders could potentially become a tenant” at the Barclays Center.[5] The Islanders' agreement with the New York Rangers allows them to relocate anywhere on Long Island, including Brooklyn and Queens.[6]

I wish Milwaukee would get a team. The Admirals are fun and technically are professional but face it, the AHL is minor league hockey. Within an hour of Milwaukee there are over 3 million people and we love our hockey in this state IE: Wisconsin-Madison Hockey team.

However the NHL won't put another team this close to the Blackhawks since it's only 20 min's to IL.

Yeah but look at the Devils and both NY teams, and the Kings/Ducks. It can be done.

Yes, 9 rinks within a 60 mile radius and with the sting of the NBA still fresh in Seattle, Buttman would be a fool not to put or relocate a team there....
arena issues, though, get in the way....

No it wouldn't... Buffalo pulls from WNY, not Canada silly. The leafs pull their odd 2 or 3 fans a game from Hamilton.

STARS STAY!

.... even though I probably don't need to say this since only one or two of you say that Dallas shouldn't have a team.

It's a bit of a plesant surprise.



Oh, and as for the thread, I DON'T think Phoenix should have a team. Really, they're the only ones I'd say shouldn't. As far as relocation for some other teams..... doesn't matter.
