HarryCanuck Posted May 4, 2015 Share Posted May 4, 2015 Considering the Stanley Cup was a gift to Canada, from England, by the Governor General of Canada - Frederick Stanley (Stanley Park was named after him as well). I would think the "CHL" could be able to lay claim to the Cup. According to Forbes, the top 5 largest revenue earning franchizes in the NHL inlcude Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver - this accounts for over 75% of the NHLs total operating income. I am interested if anyone would support a Canadian Hockey League in a similar way to the CFL? Or do we prefer the current setup which a handful of franchizes subsidize YOY, offers a larger TV market and wider competition? The cities inside Canada to make up the league: Tor, MTL, Van, CGY, EDM, OTT, Win, Halifax, Quebec, Miss'ga, Hamilton, Regina, Saskatoon and possibly Surrey and London. *To make it more interesting the top Canadian team could play the top US equivalent after the playoffs are finished.
