2014 NHL Stanley Cup Final - Game Five

The recent rumors of expansion in the NHL only made me sad to know that the Whalers are never returning to Hartford and the NHL isn’t going back to Connecticut. Even though the rumors of an NHL team in Las Vegas being “a done deal” and a second team in Toronto and a team returning to Quebec and a team in a Seattle are somewhat farfetched and misreported, it’s fun to think about the idea of new teams popping around the league and which cities would make the most sense in the U.S. and Canada.

Brian McGonagle, who is also known as Rear Admiral, of Barstool Sports Boston joined me to talk about the possibility of expansion in the NHL, the state of sports in New York and Boston, how different the two cities are when it comes to sports media and the pain of one of your teams missing an opportunity at a championship.
