Most teams in the west do not fly everywhere. Vegas drives to all the California cities, even Stockton. They fly to Idaho, Alaska, and now Colorado. For the new San Francisco franchise, if they are smart with the schedule, whenever a team goes to Stockton, just have them bus across to SF. The Cow Palace is a horrible building for hockey, even though the Sharks played there. The sight lines are terrible, and the parking/traffic is bad too. But for ECHL hockey it could work. Didn't work in the IHL with the Spiders though.
