While the topic of the next expansion is on the board...
What would be wrong with Milwakee. I'm not really sure about this, but isn't Wisconsin a hockey crazy state? They have a metro population of 1.5 million people... Why has no one ever considered Milwakee!?
They then tried to bring the Hartford Whalers to Milwaukee instead of Carolina. But again, the price tag was out of their comfort zone for what they saw as Milwaukee's ability to make money.
Also, there is "Dollar" Bill Wirtz to consider. He feels that Milwaukee is part of "his" market with the Blackhawks. And would demand a hefty "fee" for any team put here. Financially, I don't see it as viable. The Bucks are struggling at the gate, the Brewers are struggling at the gate, and the Admirals are beyond struggling at the gate. The local economy sucks asphalt right now.
