We don't really know the NHL's preference for putting a team in one place over another, but if the NHL's preference is Seattle, I wonder how much of a factor that having Vancouver close by is swaying that choice. Keep the team in the U.S. , but have a lot of Canadians close by to help support or at least go to games.

Just my belief, but I think the NHL looks at expansion maybe being a more sure thing in Canada, at least in getting an owner to buy into expansion.
