Canadian hockey fans have been talking a lot lately about the possibility of a seventh National Hockey League franchise in Canada to go with the existing six, whether by expansion or relocation. The assumption - it's not if, but when.
A joint Globe and Mail/TSN project studied four Canadian markets - Winnipeg, Hamilton, Quebec City and the Greater Toronto Area - with the goal of determining which would be most realistic for an NHL franchise.
Each market was reported on in a six-part series that ran in the pages of The Globe and a nightly segment on TSN's SportsCentre.
Globe sports reporter David Naylor discussed the overall series and the potential markets examined in the project.
