Winnipeg (Good Rival W/ Brandon and good support)
Nanaimo (Good Rival W/ Victoria or if Victoria Gets an AHL team Royals move there)
Chilliwack (Shouldn't have left)
Selkirk (Have the perfect WHL arena)
They need an arena. And I don't believe the city of Nanaimo has plans for an arena anytime soon. It's too bad Nanaimo doesn't have a facility even the size of Bear Mountain Arena. I believe they can cram close to 4,500 in there? That's bigger than some other CHL rinks, I believe.
Edit: nevermind, it's actually only 2,300. Still a freaking nice rink.
And I doubt very much the AHL ever comes to Vic. The WHL is perfect here.
