    of course the psychotic left would love to screw up hockey. I was just thinking who will stand up to these idiots, Don Cherry just did. God bless him.

    I was checking the population of the Milwaukee metro area and it's listed as approx. 1.6 million. I had thought it was about the same size as Pittsburgh but Pitt's metro population is about 2.4 million and it's considered a medium to smaller sized market. Both are relatively White for the USSA at around two/thirds White. Pittsburgh has always been a bad basketball town and will never have an NBA team but is a good hockey town. No reason Milwaukee couldn't support an NHL team, except both an NHL and NBA team probably would be too much for a market that size, as WIR stated above. Too bad because being a northern city and relatively White, the NHL would go over well in Milwaukee.

    After a great thanksgiving meal and after the family left, I was able to watch the last half of the Devs- Can game. Great exciting game.
    Hockey is a great sport. It has everything. More and more high schools are starting to have teams. I know it will never be a huge sport here in
    America, but within the White community it should have a bigger following.

    I have no idea how well a hockey team will do in a particular city. But I would like to see the NHL be financial solid for both players and teams.
    I would not want to water down the talent to expand the league more. If a team that's not doing well moves to another venue that's probably the way
    go.

    Bucky, here's the deal: Milwaukee was once seen as a virtual lock for NHL expansion, but the very wealthy, elderly prospective owner refused to pay the "exorbitant expansion fee" of $50 million.

    Back in the early 1990's the NHL had 21 teams and wanted to keep it that way. Unfortunately for them, the Gund brothers wanted to move their Minnesota North Stars to San Jose. NHL fought them, but eventually brokered a deal: The Gunds could have an expansion team in San Jose and could take some top prospects (not named Mike Modano) and draft picks with them from Minnesota. In exchange, they had to sell the N'Stars to someone that would keep them in Minnesota.

    Soon after the greedy NHL owners tasted the $45 million expansion fee from the Gunds, they changed their minds and eagerly embraced expansion. Fearing San Jose (Sun Belt team) might fail, they decided they wanted "safer" U.S markets . Reportedly Milwaukee and Seattle were chosen as the clear-cut front-runners for expansion cities. According to media reports, it was basically a formality that both cities would be added, if they simply agreed to pay a $50 million expansion fee.

    Seattle, which history tells us was granted an expansion team in 1974 that was aborted in 1976, was largely sabotaged by the Jewish owner of Seattle's NBA team in the 1990's. Basically, the Sonics owner pretended to want an NHL team, knowing he'd pull his offer at the last minute. This would make sure a group of wealthy Microsoft Goys in Seattle would not get a NHL team to compete with his Sonics. Totally low-class move by the Lonsman!

    As far as Milwaukee, there was no chicanery involved. The parsimonious elderly gentleman, a life long NHL broadcaster (Blackhawks), was livid at the expansion fee and the set up of the Expansion Draft -- did not think he could get decent players. It turned out to be short-sighted, as $50 million would soon be a bargain for an NHL team. Tampa and Ottawa, once deemed expansion "long-shots", came in with $50 million to fill the void. Tampa was forced to use money from Japanese investors to seal the deal. The Lightning have since thrived way beyond expectations. There was some talk of Milwaukee buying the Hartford Whalers or other teams in the 1990's, but it was never taken seriously.

    Looking forward, it seems the NHL has no interest in Milwaukee. Houston and Quebec City are the only cities I know of that are seriously talked about, if the NHL was forced to relocate a team.

    Peters has been fired. Kiss my stinking ass. He is not a racist and this racial sensitivity crap is one giant fake land. First Don Cherry, who was fired for getting up in the morning and now this. One of these days I hope this horse shite ends for good.

    Another head was rolled yesterday as the Dallas' coach was fired for bullying and using homophobic and misogynistic language, this language directed at players from coaches was quite common place in the NHL and the other 3 leagues until fairly recently. I remember going to a Leaf game back 35+years ago and hearing blue language from fellow players against each other. One Leaf who had his own hamburger franchise seemed to only say 4 letter words all shift against opposing players.

    Hockey is the second most violent team sport and media wants the players to wear tutus and be similar to golfers I guess.

    PS, the player that started this firestorm is an immigrant from the Ukraine and according to his Wikapedia page regards himself as Ukrainian first and Black/Mulatto second and was on his couch waiting for a pro league phone call that was probably never happening so he decided to press his nuclear button and start this firestorm as his career was basically over. IMO he reminds me of a criminal who burned through his take on a robbery and decides to dime out his co-conspirators because they wont give him a further share of the bounty...

    Geez any other Middle Aged White Men that the NHL would like to purge?!

    Thought Police in full control now..

    We all knew it wouldn't be long before they came for NHL. It's too white so therefore must be changed. It's a shame these allegations are dominating the headlines and taking away from the game.

    This all sucks to no effing end. I wanted a sport this year I could get into WITHOUT PC crap. The PTB just can't leave anything alone. They have to destroy, destroy, destroy. I hate them with a righteous hatred to no end. If anybody can name one thing they touch that they don't destroy and ruin I'd like to know what it is...
