Chicago
Philadelphia
Vancouver

don't see any other teams running with $100M+ salary base. You might have more than 8 to start with, but after the fans realize they are just development teams for the big 8, those will die as well. I will never pay $5000 for STs watching our good players leave for the big money teams over and over again.
Vancouver is a bit of a stretch. Talk about being out on an island in that scenario. The closest road game is almost 1800 miles, and 2 time zones away. Unless Vancouver was planning on having the highest payroll in the league, by far, who is going to sign in Vancouver in a free market? Who signed in Vancouver before the cap? An ancient Messier?
