Truth be told, I've long said that the AHL or ECHL are likely the only legitimate options for Thunder Bay. Too far west for the OHL, too far east for the WHL, and too far north for the USHL, but might just work for the AHL or ECHL.... and too big to be without a team in Canada.

If Winnipeg ever decided to revoke their lease of the team to St. John's, Thunder Bay would almost assuredly be the most logical choice for them to relocate their AHL affiliate (remember, they still own the IceCaps, they're just leasing them). At the very least, look into buying an ECHL team and putting them there as it'd probably be a sure thing to make a little money and help cement your team's footprint in Western Ontario.
