If TNSE doesn't own a WHL team and has them playing out of the MTS Centre within the next two years, I'll be shocked.

No offense, but I was quite involved with the Chilliwack to Victoria relocation last year - the league does whatever it wants when it wants.
Of course it does, but Nanaimo doesn't have a 7000 seat arena that's ready to steal a WHL team. They won't put one in Frank Crane so like VicWHL said, a private-funded arena would have to be built first.

Then once they have it, the pillage of bankrupt and/or small market teams can begin.
