Not to mention that the Green Bay Packers, the counterexample that's most often brought up for a small town supporting a major pro sport's franchise, have the benefit of being in a state that is significantly more densely populated than Saskatchewan and have access to a larger city as a source of fans and media wealth that is much larger than either Saskatoon or Regina.

Comparing Saskatoon and the NHL to Regina and the CFL or Green Bay and the NFL is not at all a valid comparison for your point and mine.
