Next franchise belongs in Canada

I'm proud to be an American, but as a hockey fan I'm smart enough to know that moving a team to another American city is not going to work.

You know what will happen if a team is moved to Las Vegas or Kansas City? After the mystique has worn off in about four months, more of the same.

A still-struggling team in a new city that doesn't care any more than the first one did, and we're back to square one.

I know the owners don't care about the fans, but if they did, any team that's going to move should go where people want them: Canada.
