Commissioner Gary Bettman Responds To The Chance Of A Second Toronto Area Franchise
BY S. HARPER JUNE 5, 2023 (9:02)
Bettman was recently bragging about the NHL making over $6 billion dollars in revenue this season, but still can't seem to find a home suitable for the Arizona Coyotes.
Bettman has been hoping to keep the Coyotes in the desert some where, but rumors have been floating around of them being relocated.
This brought up the idea of why not either move the Coyotes to Toronto, or bring another franchise to the GTA similar to how the New York Rangers and New York Islanders coexist.
Bettmen was asked point blank, the possibility of either the Coyotes moving to the GTA, or even a second franchise joining?
To which Bettman predictable shut down quicker then Phil Kessel eats a hotdog.
No To A Second GTA Franchise
I think we all know that as long as Bettman is NHL Commissioner, there won't be any teams coming to Canada. In fact if Bettman had it his way he'd probably relocate some teams out of Canada sadly.
