Canada enters another hockey year and still there is no sign of Hamilton getting an NHL team. Why do you think that is? Is it because of the Toronto Maple Leafs or Buffalo Sabres? After all Jim Balsillie had hundreds of millions of dollars to bring a team here.
Why does the NHL keep putting teams in places like Phoenix? Quebec City and Markham are building arenas and the demand for more teams in Canada is strong! Why not Hamilton?
I want to bring an NHL team to Hamilton because I love hockey and having a team here will create much needed jobs and help clean up the downtown area. If we, the fans, keep putting pressure on the league and showing support then Hamilton may be considered for a team.
Hamilton deserves an NHL team because of the huge demand for NHL hockey in this area, plus it will make a great rivalry with the Maple Leafs.
The video below explains more about my quest to bring an NHL team to Hamilton.
