I'm not so sure about Winnipeg. Doesn't seem like the best destination for a WHL team at the time. The Oil Kings and Hitmen have struggled to attract good crowds at times, and that's even with the Oilers and Flames struggling. Maybe once the honeymoon period cools off, then the WHL could look at Winnipeg.

Grande Prairie needs a team first.

Support for the Steel was disgustingly brutal. Nobody cared at all about them. Rexall Place is only a 25 minute drive from my house on the north end of St. Albert. With the Oilers and Oil Kings playing so close to St. Albert, the WHL should never, and will never consider it as a possible location for a team.

Took this picture at work today. That Canadian North flight going to Portland is actually the Oil Kings charter. I'm curious to know how they got permission to take out a charter.
