As the guy above said, the Riders only play once a week and people come from all over. That wouldn't happen several times a week for an NHL team.

The most expensive tickets for the Riders are $72... which would probably a similar price for the cheapest tickets for an NHL team.

I just don't think there is enough people and its too expensive.
I would love to see a team in Sask but empty seats at the WJC during Canada games looked like the market is soft when the ticket prices are high. I hope that I would be wrong with NHL hockey.

It could be 25 years before Saskatoon gets a team. Sorry Regina.
