Guessing they'll market to the North Bay, SF, and upper Peninsula primarily, and/or cheaper alternative to NHL SJ.
Travel times: ~2 hours to Stockton. ~5 hours to Bakersfield. ~7 hours to Ontario. ~9 hours to Las Vegas.
(And 15 minutes to SFO to easy flight connections to just about anywhere in the world.)
Have to wonder if this will be affiliated with NHL Sharks (or even owned by SSE) given the proximity and arena history.
San Jose would make all the sense in the world. Can an NHL team have 2 ECHL affiliates? If not, this could be somewhat bad news for Stockton.
