Some solid posturing from an Edmonton boy, and lifelong Oiler fan though.
I think the move would be approved by the BOG. Calgary would lose an obvious geographic rival, but Vancouver would pick one up. Oilers in Seattle might just be the domino to drop that allows the NHL to finally get in to Portland as well. That would make the westcoast swing a lot easier to take for the overpaid babies from the eastern conference and allow the NHL to finally get back to a full interlockimg schedule. Anaheim, Los Angeles, San Jose, Portland, Seattle and Vancover, all on the schedule with no kore than a 90 minute flight between stops up the coast. Calgary and Edmonton are small potatoes when you are trying to expand the American market and get into all the major media markets.
