Any news of new NHL teams next season?

There is speculation of NHL teams possibly relocating or just new ones coming in especially in Canada.

    The NHL is not going to expand due to the fact that multiple clubs are struggling, financially. NHL expansion would dilute the talent pool too. There are many locations for possible NHL club re-location(s). Quebec City won't be able to get an NHL team back until their new arena is built. For now, the question is what will become of the CBA negotiations. Will the 2012-13 season be in jeopardy or will disaster be averted with a new deal agreed upon before the expiration of the existing CBA? Only time will tell.

    If Phoenix Coyotes don't get new ownership soon, they will relocate next season.

    Seattle, Portland, Utah, Kansas City, Houston, Toronto, and Quebec City are in the run for the team.

    Portland, Milwaukee, Kansas City have NHL ready stadiums at the moment. Portland can hold 18,280 fans while Milwaukee can hold 17,845. Kansas City can hold 17,544 fans, but they don't have a major tenant yet. I think Portland edges Milwaukee out because it is in the west coast, has more seats, and has more rumors.

    Seattle, Quebec City, and Toronto could get it but they need better stadiums.

    Utah has too small fo a stadium.

    Houston might be too south for the NHL.

    If they were to move, they need a good start to run a profitable/successful team. Does Kansas City have the market? maybe. Portland and Milwaukee have the climate for it.

    Portland vs Milwaukee.

    Since Portland has more seats to fill fans if they were to become successful, put your bets on Portland having one.

    The rest of the places are still possible.
