Saskatoon is obviously an unrealistic option. However it has been evident so far that Winnipeg is supporting its franchise much better than a lot of bigger American cities are. That will lesson once the honeymoon stage is over, but still there is a waiting list for seasons tickets that should fill the stadium for many years to come. The reason for its success is because, like almost all Canadian cities, it has a very large proportion of hockey fans.
