C'mon Gary, bring hockey to where it's desperately wanted

Why does Gary Bettman have such a problem putting another team in Ontario or Canada for that matter?

We love our hockey here. It’s the topic of conversation at work year-round. Here in London we have the Knights, which is great hockey, but we have to drive more than two hours for an NHL game.

We can't get Leafs tickets because they are expensive or hard to come by and it's a hassle to cross the border to see the Sabres or Red Wings. I don't understand the theory behind keeping a team in Arizona when they don't make money.

Gary, give southern Ontario a chance; we will support the Coyotes if they come here.

Barry Dunham, London, Ont.
