CBC wouldn’t mind another Canadian team

From Bruce Dowbiggen of the Globe & Mail:

Dowbiggen is right. There is no way that CBC wouldn’t be on board with having another team in Canada, never mind in Southern Ontario.  It appears this move has a fair amount of support behind the scenes, but that does not mean it gets done; it looks like there is going to be a big battle ahead.

What a wild and wacky Friday.

Jets beat Stars 5-4 in OT
Moose lose 3-0 to Griffins
