For the Pacific: Seattle? Portland? Las Vegas?

For the Midwest: Milwaukee? Kansas City? Indianapolis?

I think Seattle and Milwaukee would be great additions, seems like there would be alot of support for hockey in those two cities.
I guess Houston is possible, but I think the lease of the arena only allows the guy that owns the Rockets to own a NHL team.

Portland is all about Paul Allen.
