so here is what i don't get...i understand both the pros and cons for moving the coyotes, but to ontario? just won't happen.

since the lock-out, the league has sky rocketed in popularity...the fan base has exploded tremendously. fans are coming into something great now, and to move a team like the coyotes to ontario would be a bad idea.

why? well now you have to re-do the entire league. move teams to different conferences and different divisions. who would enter into the western conference? the closest team is pittsburgh. not gonna happen.

but the team does need to be moved. simple reason, there is not enough of a fanbase there to keep it going. their biggest star is the great one, but he doesn't play. and less face it...he is only doing an okay job there.

my suggestion....move the team to texas. why? simple, dallas has an excellent fan base. throw in another team into the lone star state, say houston, maybe austin, maybe even san antonio. point is it will stay in division and no restructuring will be needed, you will create more of a fanbase and greater revenue, and quite possibly create a phenomial rivalary.

Houston would be your best bet. Austin is primarily a college based fan system. However you would be competing with the NFL and NBA. San Antonio would be better from just one other major sport in the Spurs.

Why keep moving teams to states that already have a team? why not move them somewhere that doesn't.

gotta look at who could actually support an nhl team. need a fanbase, or enough people that would be excited to have a team.
