It seems large enough, has somewhat of a metro area on the Iowa side of Council Bluffs, although it's not that big.
Really, a one big league team market could work well.
I've driven through it a few times, and stayed in a hotel during the evening, but that's all.
Interesting idea though. I think the NHL could look at the empty major league cities, and see what they could do there.
Although, from what I'm aware, Nebraska/Omaha is also a big college sports town, much like Columbus (which was mentioned earlier)
Council Bluffs isn't much. And beyond that, there is nothing until Des Moines. Omaha is just too small....plus, if the other leagues won't consider it, why would the NHL?
