Al Strachan is wrong

What Al Strachan fails to acknowledge in his column is travel costs for the other NHL teams.

Truth is that Phoenix is in a no mans land both geographically and hockey wise. The teams is surrounded by desert and is pretty far from all the other hockey teams except the Ducks and Kings in LA.

Send a team to Ontario or Vegas. At least in Vegas they would have a monopoly on the pro-sports market unlike Phoenix. Hell even Kansas City would be nice they have an arena.

The sport is stable in Canada. Yes the NHL should expand but throwing out two teams in Florida and one in Atlanta, Phoenix, and Nashville over such a short period of time is just silly, risky, and misguided.
