USA Today: NHL will most likely add 3 expansion teams, total of 34 teams

13 posts in this topic

USA Today - The NHL's commitment to considering Seattle as its 32nd team makes it tempting to wonder whether the NHL is en route to becoming a 34-team league.

But don’t get carried away.     

NHL owners haven’t officially approved Seattle yet, though the city has been granted permission to submit the expansion application and launch a season-ticket drive. It’s the same process Las Vegas followed before becoming the Vegas Golden Knights.

This was a logical step for the NHL because there has long been a fascination with Seattle’s potential. Plus, Seattle is a natural fit to join the Western Conference, thereby balancing the league again with 16 teams in each conference.

From there, it’s not a significant leap to see the NHL embracing Houston as the 33rd team and then Quebec City becoming No. 34. Houston is the USA’s fourth-largest city in terms of population. Adding Houston expands the NHL’s television reach.

USA Today is indicating that SEATTLE, HOUSTON, and QUEBEC CITY will be receiving expansion teams.  If those cities are already spoken for, then where will Coyotes, Panthers, Hurricanes, and the Flames be moving to?  I have a good guess which city will be at the top of the list for those existing teams looking to move.

It's really interesting that the SECOND SENTENCE of the article says "But don't get carried away"...so Frank gets carried away.
