    It would really suck if canada looses another team. [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img] Just another reason the NHL needs a salary cap!!! They cant let this crap go on much longer or a few of these teams are going to go out of buisness!!


    I live in the Seattle area, I love Hockey! You would think that with all of the fricken Billionares that reside in Seattle we could have a NHL hockey Team. [img]smilies/cry.gif[/img]

    And thats about what its worth.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>The only problem with that is that if a billionaire from Seattle wants an NHL team, he'll probably buy one of the Canadian ones and take it south.

    Onto the actual topic, I'm surprised there are 9400 people who would pay to watch the Flames 41 nights a year. At some point, I wouldn't keep paying to watch a team that isn't good enough to compete.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE> [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] OLO, I am surprised that an American cares about the Canadian teams. [img]smilies/scared.gif[/img]

    I didn't think that Americans liked hockey that much.

    I love Hockey! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Back east and in the midwest Hockey is huge in the US. What bugs me is teams that have been in the league for years and end up in a town like Phoenix or Tampa Bay were the kids there have never been on skates let alone seen snow. Canada is losing teams because of the all mighty dollar they cant compete and the salaries are killing these small market teams like Edmonton and Calgary.

    It just irks me to no end that the Jets and Nordiques are playing in the states now. PHOENIX [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] give me a break! The coldest it gets there is what 50? Meanwhile fans who live and die for hockey lost there team!!

    Why does florida need two hockey teams? but meanwhile the flames are in trouble of loosing some finacial aid!

    Its only going to get worse unless the NHL owners and players can agree on a salary cap. I will shut up now I am starting to babble I could go on for hours on this subject.

    Where is the TRADITION!?!?!?!

    I would love to see the Canadian teams flourish again. It kills me to watch a great team like the Canadiens struggle.

    As much as I love the STL Blues, I am a hockey fan. It is not good for any sport to have the Haves and Have Nots. That is what the NHL is turning into.
