Saskatoon (SaskPlace) capacity over 14,000, population around 200,000, international airport.

Regina (Brant Centre) capacity around 6,000, population around 200,000, international airport.

Lethbridge (Enmax Centre) capacity around 5,500, population around 80,000, regional airport.

While Lethbridge would be the desirable location (from a fan's perspective) it's terrible from a business / hockey operations perspective. Regina would work, but I don't think their arena is up to standard. That leaves Saskatoon, site of a sold-out (or close to?) preseason game a few years back.

That said, the Flames will try something out of left field and put a farm team in Sacramento or something...
