I was only basing it on the fact that the Winterhawks supposedly do very well there, and that the area also supports Tri-City and Spokane WHL teams as well.

The Portland-Vancouver (US) metro area has a population of roughly 750k, but I am not sure how rabid the hockey fans are? Couldn't be worse than Phoenix
