With the NHL beginning the season in Europe for another year, do you think it is time for the NHL to explore the possibility of expanding the league across the Atlantic Ocean?
Is it in the NHL's interest to grow the game globally? Or should the league fix their problem franchises first before looking elsewhere to expand?
Have your say in our forum.
Some people in the media are making this into a story. It's not even under consideration!
It will never happen.

Players have a tough enough time coming to a beatuful city like Edmonton and settling down because their wife isn't happy(Pronger)imagine settling down in Prauge 4 time zones away, where cultural differances are much bigger, it will never work.

It's called the
NATIONAL Hockey League.
It's hard enough we have to endure watching teams like Phoenix and Florida.
The downfall of hockey was the hiring of Gary Bettman.

Things have gotten worse now with the salary cap increasing at a higher rate than before the strike, and with no major US television contract and no major sponsorship, the reliance on gate is just opening things up to disaster. So, is it a surprise then that Mr. Bettman comes up with this half-baked idea?
BTW, what exactly was that strike all about anyway?
