May have missed the overall point of the thread, but I think shrinking the league would be terrible for the health of the game. You also can't expect growth overnight. The Winterhawks (prior to the sanctions) were slowly growing in popularity in the Portland area. The CA Bay Area has fully embraced the sharks at this point. It's not unreasonable to think it will take a good amount of time for the southern teams to catch on
The Winterhawks have fans that follow the team around. I've seen them up here every time the T-Birds host Portland.
