A lot of talk has gone on about how the two cities who should get the expansion teams when they do actually come out with them is Las Vegas and Kansas City. I don't see how either of these cities really should get a team considering they are both considered low in the ratings pools for popular sports cities. Don't get me wrong I know KC loves their Royals and their Chiefs... but are they a hockey team?
Las Vegas isn't a sports city. Las Vegas is where you go to bet on all other cities that can handle a professional team and actually not sink into the ground after a year. Why this city was picked is beyond me considering what do they have as professional teams? Exactly...
I think Quebec or Winnepeg should get a shot at getting a team back. If not both of them I really think bringing back an old team would work well not with just nastalgia but with revenues in those cities. Hartford would be a team to think about bringing back also.
I also would consider Hamilton as a city.
I guess I should compile a list so here goes!
These would be my top 4 picks. What do you guys consider a town that would be great for hockey?
