    Since the NHL is still on lockout for a long time, this will be a great opportunity for Vince McMahon or anyone if they have any interest in it. Of course you know about the XFL, it failed because the NFL was not on a lockout at that time. The USFL started and took advantage when the NFL had a work stoppage or players' strike in the 1980s. What I meant is to start a competing pro hockey league and put the teams in cities/towns that don't have an NHL franchise and maybe in the next 5-10 years there can be a merger like NHL/WHA, NFL/AFL, and NBA/ABA.

    I love the NHL, but I just don't think there's enough of a market for non-NHL hockey in the USA.
