If the USHL is considering Thunder Bay, I wonder if the league would consider scooping up one of the largest markets in Canada without major junior or equivalent level hockey, that being Winnipeg. With Fargo being relatively close by, and Thunder Bay rumoured, it could make sense geographically.
I also wonder if expansion into canadian markets would ever cause conflict with the CHL.
I think at some point were going to see the Chl and Ushl merge.
