Yeah I never thoguht of Fort Mac being viable place for a club like that but it makes too much sense. As you said the arena is just too small. Katz should be spending his money on having a bigger arena built there for the AHL franchise and make a killing that way. They could easily make a killing from all the Oiler fans and Oil money up there.

Plus the Fort Mac airport is set to re-open as an internation airport meaning there will be more access in and out of the area. However in terms of the league this would be taking a team right in the middle of everyone else and putting them as far north as possible. But in terms of the single franchise that market would make a killing on a pro-sports teams.
