RE: teams in California and Florida. Really, one of the goals of pro hockey is to promote the game. Also, there are many players that would love to live somewhere warm and sunny. Yes, there are five teams between California and Florida, and that has resulted in six Final appearances and three Stanley Cups. Hockey works in these places. This “sunbelt team relocation” argument is old and tired. Go away.
-
In response to the one about CA and FL having more teams than eastern Canada: they also have a bigger population. California alone has more people than the whole country of Canada. So between the two states and the 5 teams, they generate way more fans than one section of Canada ever could. More fans = more money.

In response to the “too many teams in the south” confession: If you really wanna bring up what each team has brought to the league and what kind of championships they’ve won WE DEFINITELY CAN. yeah some players wanna play in warm places cause they can’t handle the cold, but a lotttt of players would want to play for an original six team or a legendary team like the Nordiques.

  17. chelseacadon said: geez, probably the same person who made that other confession. CA and FL have bigger markets. simple as that. Los Angeles alone is a rich city and has more people than most states/provinces.
