Expansion not the answer

Charles Allaire, Hanmer, Ont.

Gary Bettman recently said the NHL will see expansion before relocation. Has this man completely lost his mind?

There aren't enough NHL-caliber players as it is to fill 30 teams; forget about adding any more.

I think it’s high time the team owners look at the current state of our game and realize some things need to change. They got the salary cap, yet the league is no healthier than it was before the lockout.

Perhaps capping player salaries isn't the major change the NHL needed.
