If it happens, great! And I will be sitting at my computer when season tickets go on sale hoping to cash in on the secondary market just like everyone else, but the feeling around acquiring the team is nothing like Winnipeg or Quebec.
Winnipeg and Quebec are seen as wrongs that need to be righted. GTA2 has no such sentimental attachments. It is a pure business decision.
I think a lot of Vancouver fans are looking forward to a team in Seattle as we'll finally have the close regional rival most other teams have. Plus I think Seattle is so regionally different from the rest of the US that they are more like Western Canadians than the average American so it would almost be a quasi Canadian team
