Are you telling me, as a fan, you wouldn't want to pay to see teams in a league where all the best players played or you'd much rather shell out hundreds of dollars to watch a team like the Blue Jackets? Sounds to me like you didn't put much thought into your comment either.

Are you saying 5 eastern owners would include travel to/from Vancouver in a six team league instead of Chicago? if they were to make a six team league they'd take the six strongest markets in the eastern area. Easier travel and no late night games for the eastern viewers.

Simple solution,
Move Phoenix to Quebec
Move Florida or Tampa to Portland(Would increase attendance to one of the Florida markets as well)
Salary cap 100M floor 75M

the question should be - is he ruining the league?

And the answer is: Yes!
"He'll play! You know he'll play! He'll play on crutches!"
"Adams shoots...SCORES!!! Greg Adams!!! Greg Adams!!!"
"They've slayed the dragon!!"

I'm sure it's been pointed out already but it still needs to be driven home for some members here again and again.

Gary Bettman works for a guy named Francesco Aquillini, the majority owner of the Canucks. Aquillini directs Bettman along with other owners. Bettman being a worm isn't the debate here.
