They follow their hockey well with the WHL and they have some of the best attendance in that league, drawing I think -and don't quote me, I could be wrong- but upwards of 14,000 a game for Portland.
While I don't think further southern US expansion is a good idea at the moment, given issues in Atlanta, Phoenix and Nashville,
if the NHL did have to relocate in the south I'd hope it'd be to Las Vegas.
I'm assuming you guys would have a better idea of that than me, but if there's a city where disposable income seems like a guarantee, you'd think every weekend game would be a sellout.
Dittos infinitum on that...
