  1. Hm, as much as I'd like to go under-70 for the cut-off, the Jackets would be under the bar and I think they're fine. So idk.

    I have a question to ask, do you guys feel like we're a little harsh on the fanbases like say the Coyotes? Just curious, not trying to be mean.

    I don't think anyone here is really attacking the fanbase when they want the Coyotes to be moved, but maybe I'm wrong. I think it's a mix of frustration with the stubbornness the NHL has shown in trying to make the team work, despite it very clearly not working, and the idea that it's kind of likely that their continued existence has literally killed people through what Glendale has had to cut to keep them.

    And I don't mean figuratively when I say literally. I mean literally.

    Ah, okay. That makes sense. Relocation would still would suck for the fans, even if they are few.

  2. 2019: Sensing that the walls are closing in, Notre Dame relents and finally joins the ACC in football. It brings the league back up to 15 teams.

    I think it's only inevitable. Though the ACC would probably always want to remain an even numbered set of schools, thus creating a bidding war or whatever for another spot.

    Yeah and I think the American would die before Louisville rejoins

  3. Watch the NHL give an expansion team to the group in a suburb of a city that doesn't even really want hockey over the ready-to-go arena in the hockey hotbed of Quebec City. Just watch it happen.

    Are you saying any of us would be surprised?

    Is Tukwila way out there or something? I'm pretty optimistic about Seattle as an NHL market, so I'm curious why everyone's discussing it as a bad idea.

  4. Oh Lord. Move the Coyotes to Vegas and they're staying there for 15-20 years.

    15? I'll take the over. What are the odds on Vegas gold? Will there be a cow skull or playing cards in their branding? Let's put some money on this. Make it interesting.

    Definitely over. I'll say black/red/Vegas gold. I think the logo will at least contain the ace of spades.

    Read that in Lemmy's voice.

    I'm going over.

  5. Thats why it's called the POINTLESS realignment outpost

    It wasn't a random WTF realignment though. It looked like a serious MLB realignment.

    If you wanna look at some pointless ones, look at the first few pages, or maybe add too many teams for the sake of it.

    EDIT: I also made a 32 teams 8 division MLB realignment. You are free to criticize this one ECUFan25. In fact I would encourage you do so

  7. http://espn.go.com/nhl/story/_/id/13007905/commissioner-gary-bettman-says-nhl-begin-expansion-process-soon-june-owners-approval

    I think the 'E' ball is in full motion. I definitely think that Quebec City is getting a team, for a few reasons.

    1. Arena's just about done, in line with the expansion rumblings.

    2. It's hard to say no when you look at Winnipeg's success.

    3. And lastly, and most importantly to King Bettman, it serves as a distraction/choice of reason when also giving Las Vegas a team, which will ultimately be an epic failure.

    Seattle is still in the background, but they seem to have too many arena issues. I could possibly see a 2 stage expansion- 1st stage (2017-18) Quebec and Las Vegas; 2nd stage Seattle and somewhere else (2019-2020).
