The Hamilton Penguins?
It's an old storyline, to be sure, but here it is again.
Hamilton has been thwarted several times in its bid to land an NHL team, but a process is still in place if an opportunity pops up in the near future.Unfortunately, I don't see the NHL ever coming back to another Canadian city, regardless of how attractively marketed they are.
The city has an ongoing agreement with HHC Acquisition Corp, a firm tasked with finding and buying a team to play in Copps Coliseum.
Proponents, like the city's mayor, Larry Di Ianni, say Hamilton is "ideally situated" for an NHL team.
"We live within a fairly short driving distance of 6 million people. If other markets can support up to three teams, I think this market, given that dynamic, could probably make a go of it as well," Di Ianni said yesterday.
