Hefty overpay for Saad on that contract I'd say, but if you're doing that so we can't re-sign him then at least give us the option on Crouse lol.

Phoenix is the 5th largest city in the USA. They're not moving. ***BUT**** WHAT THEY NEED TO DO is get out of freakin Glendale. ASU is building a new hockey arena. Go team up with ASU. OR Just a thought...Go to Scottsdale! No one likes driving out to Glendale. I used to live there. I went to a bunch of games. HATED driving out there. Football only has 8 home games. People make events about things that happen 8 times a year. Not 41. Go to the people!!! (and people with $$$ Cha Ching!...not Glendale!)

If a team moves to Quebec it won't be a western conference one

That's just because of the way the conferences are set up right now. They've already moved Arizona to the central division in anticipation of Seattle joining the Pacific.

The league can easily move a team west to the central division and swap with Arizona. Also, Quebec City applied for and paid an expansion fee, while Houston did not. Quebec is up next.

I like that for NYI. A third line of Crouse-Pageau-Wahlstrom would be great. Can Arizona take back salary? Like Hickey?
