Fort Mac's biggest hurdle would be the old boys network in the WHL head office. If one of the old boys wants to move a team there it will happen, if none of them do, a team will never go there. Its that simple.
It doesnt really matter how much money Fort Mac is willing to pay to buy a franchise, it doesnt work that way with the WHL. Local ownership groups in Prince George have been trying to buy the team for years, rumored offers of over double the value of the team but an absolute no from ownership.
