As far as market size, I would say the Edmonton market size for hockey is considerably larger than many, if not most NHL cities.
If you had 1 billion people living on the North Pole, does it become the worlds largest air conditioning market? Of course not, market size is relative.
Why would we compare it to Grand Prairie or Red Deer? Do they have 16k stadiums?

Might as well compare the size of Edmonton to Gibbons or Glendon.
