My take on things:
Islanders & the Barclays Centre problems & Carolina, both teams I believe are on the move. To were still up in the air, 2 places that are interested in the east.
Hartford
Quebec City

Who would I like see go were, impo
Carolina goes to Quebec City & New York Islanders heads to Hartford, I like the future of Carolina a young upcoming team just what Quebec City needs imo.

As for Arizona I suspect it will move to a new arena in Seattle, oh yes Florida... personal let it fold. Columbus once Tort's has built that team up, fire him and bring in a real coach and they will be fine.

That's my take, I don't really watch much NHL hockey anymore.

Ha Ha Ha..................the McOilers are getting what they deserve. The years of futility with so many 1st round draft picks boiled down to an owner (Katz) who had his head stuck in Oiler history and believed keeping the likes of Kevin (pylon) Lowe and similar other Oiler has-been's in management would lead to success. Katz then kinda, sorta woke up and hired Bob Nicholson from Hockey Canada (business man) as President. Then hires Peter Scirelli who was FIRED from the Boston Bruins for really screwing up that team after their 2011 Stanley Cup. Then hiring Head Coach Todd McLellan who if anything is a very average coach. Then another 1st-round pick of McDavid as icing on what appears to be a team heading in the right direction.........finally. What happens next..............Milan (dumb-as-a stump) Lucic is signed for a 5 year, $6,000,000 per year, no-trade contract..............this is Scirelli at his best. The next mistake...........lets make our rookie superstar the Captain............only the Oilers could be this stupid. Now, their 2 best players in McDavid and Draisaitl are surrounded by a bunch of SLOW and underperforming players (last years team performance appears now to have been over-achieving by a longshot). Trade bait to acquire better players is going to be difficult since they have no trade bait. Only hope is to finish last and try for another 1st round pick.............and it won't be another McDavid.

Guy i fought with just got forced to retire. He was a good player too. Best wishes to Derek Dorsett. I know his famioy back in sask. Him and his buddies jumped me one night. Smashed his brothers face into a bar urinal.

Anyways that was many many years ago.
I thought Derek was probably the grittiest player on the Canaucks. He will be missed

No Gary, please no more expansion teams. You have few that are hurting just have them move.
impo here are my moves:
Arizona to Seattle
NYI (not hurting, may not have arena to play in) goes to either Hartford or Quebec City
Carolina to either Hartford or Quebec City

Attendance in both the home of Hurricanes & Coyotes really sucks, impo both franchises should move.
Coyotes to Seattle and Hurricanes to Quebec City. Quebec City would be sold out most every game, as well Seattle.

Here are worst home game average percentages attendance for the 2017-18 season, 7 teams under 90%.
Columbus 84.6
Ottawa 82.2 (worst Canadian club, I'm guessing due to how far out of Ottawa the arena is)
Colorado 81.7
Arizona 78.4
New York Islanders 73.9
Florida 73.7
Carolina 63.5

next worse Canadian club Vancouver at 93.7
best Canadian club Toronto at 102.4% (so that means a lot of fans standing during the game)

NHL attendance figures are a joke. Detroit apparently has been 100% full for the season. Anyone watching their games can see the building is no where close to being full. Empty seats everywhere. I don't think Florida has been 73% full for any of their games. I'd be surprised if they get 3,000 most nights. Free ticket giveaways should not be included in attendance, but I suspect they are being included.

I think the oilers will still make the playoffs. They've been looking really good the past few games with the line changes. I'm sure they'll start pumping out win streaks soon.
