No expansion. It will have to be through relocation. There is no doubt about which WHL team should move here (IMO)- The MOOSE JAW WARRIORS! They moved from Winnipeg in 1984, mainly because the Jets were the big game in town, and the Warriors were second fiddle.
If we were to bring the Warriors back to Winnipeg, the AHL Moose would suffer, since even the Brandon Wheat Kings have better attendance than the Moose when they play here 3 or 4 times per year. The Winnipeg Warriors would be the top dog in Winnipeg's hockey scene, with the Moose coming in a distant second.
