Now, rumours of phoenix potentially moving to Seattle are coming up, I'm just wondering if the Seattle Thunderbirds and the Everett Silvertips would be safe, or would their market be ruined?
Nanaimo's getting a team talks has heated up a tad, so who knows. PG isn't safe, PA is having problems, and Swift Current is a small small market in the WHL.
Its hard to say some markets can handle both some can not When Ottawa was awarded the nhl team people said the 67s are done they is no way the market can support both now what did happen was the 67s have done very well since the sens did arrive my point is a nhl team does not mean the end of a major jr team.
