Think about it:
- We have the worst travel schedule in the NHL.
- Our rabid fanbase puts players under constant scrutiny and undue pressure.
- Very difficult to absorb a losing season in order to obtain sweet sweet high draft picks and bonafide stars on ELC contracts.
- Recent history has shown it is very unlikely to win a Cup based out of Canada.
Vancouver is an amazing place with passionate fans: good enough to win a president's trophy or two, but let's face it.. this city doesn't have what it takes to win a cup. What we need is a re-location to an American city with a moderately interested fanbase. Maybe some place with an NFL or NBA franchise or two and preferably in the Eastern conference. This would help our top players maintain the anonymity to drink and party without consequence that star hockey players crave. No wonder our team is so uptight, can't even have a beer and a babe without being sent to the farm.
Proposal: Vancouver to... Cincinatti?
