If teams had the dollars to travel by air, I might agree. However, travelling by bus, a road trip from Prince George to Eugene for a conference matchup would be hell. The WHL is already spread out enough that there has been an unbalanced schedule for the past few season...IE: West Div. teams visit East while East doesn't visit switches the next season and so on. Hell, BC's Kootenay Ice play Central's Calgary Hitmen more than they do their own division rivals.

As far as talent goes, it is an interesting debate for sure, but I think the WHL is fine at 20 teams.

What I could stand to see, is a team like Moose Jaw or Swift Current move to Edmonton ...yeah, the Ice failed miserably there, but that's because the Oilers drove them out. Lately, it has been the Oilers interested in owning a WHL team. It would work wonders in that case.
