BREAKING: NHL Meeting Reveals a Potential 33rd NHL Teams' Location

The Seattle Kraken and Vegas Golden Knights have both gained the NHL a significant boost in revenue, and you know Bettman is all about his money. Fun fact; they are the only major sports league to add a new franchise within the past decade, and they have done it twice.

The NHL and Gary Bettman held a board of governor's meeting yesterday to discuss various things around the NHL, but one topic is trending, and it related to three new possible situation.

Friedman on TJMS says Vegas and Seattle are two high revenue generating teams, they're not at the top but they are near the top and that's why Friedman feels Bettman fights for Arizona and that's why he wonders about Houston or Austin or Toronto 2.

Friedman doesn't believe expansion is imminent, but he does wonder if they get there someday because of the success Seattle and Vegas have been. Marek not so sure a 2nd team in Toronto is possible, especially with all the money the Leafs pay in revenue sharing.




With a 33rd team in the NHL it would make a uneven playoff bracket, so it'll be interesting to see what the league will do if we are seeing a new organization in just a few years time..
