Langley's building is nothing to sneeze at.
Given the owner of the Portland Winterhawks discussed the possibility of bringing in AHL to ACCOMPANY the Winterhawks before sanctions threw Memorial Coliseum renovation plans for a loop, I wouldn't be surprised if an AHL team to replace the Winterhawks is a possibility.
I am strongly doubtful the AHL would displace any CHL team, Portland Winterhawks included given how long they've been around. I was under the impression that the NHL/AHL had an unofficial agreement with the CHL not to try to displace the CHL from any of its markets, given that the CHL is the source for a vast portion of the AHL/NHL's players.
