Bettman Acknowledges NHL Is Fielding Expansion Inquiries, But Makes No Guarantees
Published December 11, 2013
PEACE FOR OUR TIME: QMI AGENCY's Chris Stevenson noted with labor peace "assured for the better part of a decade and the most lucrative broadcast deals in NHL history now in place, the NHL hasn’t been more financially stable in recent memory." Stevenson: "Believe this: The NHL will expand. My guess is it will be for the 2016-17 season when the NHL celebrates its 100th anniversary." With franchise fees probably north of $350M, that will "be a nice little birthday present the owners can give themselves" (QMI AGENCY, 12/10).
