Question BTW for the folks who follow Norfolk's AHL team - what kind of fan base is there in that region for that club, and do you believe that the market could sustain an NHL team???
No. I lived in Virginia up until two years ago. The Hampton Roads population, while it looks good on paper, is actually mostly transient: Military facilities and colleges, (and tourism) are the big draws down there. There just isn't a big enough permanent population to support a major league sports franchise.
