So it looks like 32 teams is a matter of formalities and a few years. I've said for years I really wanted Quebec and Seattle, and to move Columbus or Detroit back to the west, but it seems pretty certain Las Vegas is in. For some reason I thought their ticket drive didn't go as well as hoped, but they're up to 11,500. Quebec's window may have closed, which is sad to me. They had a ton of momentum and fan support, built that stadium, but I think I heard that the Canadian dollar isn't as strong, and Quebec would be the smallest market in the league I believe. Maybe they can still get it done.
