Regina would be great too, but I can't see a second NHL team popping up on the Prairies if the Jets come back to Winnipeg -- which would definitely happen first due to the ownership/arena/everything coming together. There's certainly support for hockey in Regina, but Saskatchewan, like Manitoba, has a relatively small population despite being a large province, and I think a lot of the criticism Manitoba has faced would be double in SK, because they don't even have the NHL history for reference.
only difference, Fidel, MSG owns the Whale..... all WSE did is run the marketing....
