Expansion In Europe - It Could Happen

from Al Strachan at Fox Sports,

There is no doubt that the NHL would like to get into Europe, but there’s also no doubt that at the moment, it’s just not feasible.

There is, however, faint hope on the horizon. Aeronautical engineers say that we’re not that far away from flights that escape the earth’s atmosphere.

In other words, the plane would go so high that it would escape most of the earth’s gravitational pull. While it’s up, the earth would turn and then the plane would come down on the other side of the ocean. In theory, this would reduce the length of a transcontinental flight to two hours.
