    If they really want to do Whalers, there might be a good way to make that H a W for Washington Whalers. However, two teams named Washington would be an issue.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1-2 backup G's, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: F Andersen
    Backup G: Holtby
    D: Gardiner, M Reilly, Letang, Klingberg, Gostisbehere, Carlson
    F1: Voracek, Giroux, Couturier
    F2: Wheeler, Schiefele, Tavares
    F3: Benn, Seguin, MacKinnon
    F4: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller

    Bench:
    G: (none)
    D: Ekman-Larsson, Werenski, Orlov
    F: Pavelski, Bailey, Guentzel, Sprong, Killorn, Bjorkstrand, Tuch, Labanc, Donato, Necas

    Reserve:
    Datsyuk

    Sort of on vague-topic of Quebec ever getting a team...

    Forbes came out with their list of team valuations:
    https://www.forbes.com/nhl-valuations/list/#tabverall

    No surprise at the end:
    30. Florida Panthers
    31. Arizona Coyotes

    Florida had been my conspiracy theory to relocate several years ago.
    I think they would've gone too.
    But the ownership basically used their net losses to leverage (hostage) the local government to pony up for huge subsidy payments on the arena.
    I can't remember how long that lease requirement lasts for them. [Found it: Florida can "opt out" as early as 2024.]

    Also - I thought the "Arizona to the Central" move by Bettman & Co. was pretty slick.
    I mean they say "Oh, well Arizona operates in Mountain Time".
    But what they really meant was "This will make it easier if your team ends up relocating to Houston, Kansas City, or Quebec."

    Put your money down.
    One of these teams will be relocated by 2025.
    Florida... or Arizona?

    There are already two team named New York... so it shouldn't be an issue.

    If I was marketing I would be all over the Washington Whalers.

    If Don Cherry wore a cow mask I might actually watch/listen.

    Would at least make the face a little prettier. I might watch at that point but I would probably still leave it on mute.
