If The Pens Move

from the Toronto Star,
Could the "Return of the Winnipeg Jets Campaign" finally bear fruit? Would the Penguins move from one Steeltown to another? Does the NHL adore Quebec City? And what about new possibilities on the NHL map, places like Houston, Las Vegas and Kansas City? The largest city in the U.S. that doesn't have an NHL team is Houston, the country's fourth biggest. Also big, puck-less and potentially profitable are San Francisco, Seattle, Las Vegas and Kansas City. Ryder calls relocating the Penguins to an American city Plan A. Plan B, he said, would be deciding the NHL is in fact a regional sport and thereby moving the franchise to Canada. The six largest Canadian cities already have teams, but Winnipeg, Quebec City, and Hamilton — all about the same size — and much smaller Halifax could all be in the mix.
