I think it has more to do with fans wanting 2 teams just for the sake of 2 new franchises than for the sake of having an odd number team.

BTW, I'd like Seattle and Portland. Would make for good rivals to go along with Vancouver.

In the same area and I assume the Seattle and Portland would have one of those rivalries just naturally
