yeah, i can't believe the NHL would have let the canucks move, even in the darkest days of the asia financial crash and the crappy canadian dollar. i mean, that's basically throwing future money away. it was clear to everyone that this city had both the passion for the game and the financial base to bounce back and basically print money for the hockey team. the only surprise, i think, is that calgary has ended up building its own financial base to the point where if a few years from now they have a competitive team, that team could be worth more than the canucks.
