The Winnipeg Jets. Feel bad for the fans of Phoenix but you get the feeling that they are going to be losing their team.

I don't know how it has to happen but I want Detroit in the Northeast division.

Want the Coyotes to stay in Phoenix, rather want the Panthers franchise to move to Winnipeg.

However I want NHL to somehow put Avalanche in central div and move Nash to SE division.

Jets - my one concern about the Nordiques is that there would be a 3rd team coming to SBP with a huge amount of fans in our building. It would certainly cut the Hab fans in half which would be great, but I think there would be quite a few Nordique fans around here too. Then there are the stinking Leaf fans.

My guess is that eventually Phoenix moves to Winnepeg & at some point in the future maybe Florida moves to Quebec City & Atlanta might move to the Toronto area (Hamilton or Waterloo). If Saskatchewan's economy continues to grow I could also see a team (Columbus) maybe at some point in the future move to Regina/Saskatoon.

The problem Regina/Saskatoon has is population and geography. Sure, the WJCs worked, but that was an isolated event. The Rough Riders work because games are once a week. Filling a 16,000+ capacity rink for 41 home games, plus pre-season and playoffs might be a bit of a stretch.

Sure, the economy is doing well, but I don't think a team in Regina/Saskatoon will ever be viable.

Also, Regina and Saskatoon aren't that close together (about 250kms, I think). Good luck getting people to do that trip on weekdays.

I was thinking one or the other but I agree, the population & the economy would have to boom & then there is the long term viability. But keep in mind that there isn't much else there other than WHL for people to spend their money on & 15,000 fans in Regina may be better than 8,000 or less in Columbus. Again, their economy must continue to grow & as well as the population & business community for this to be viable but anything is possible. Wasn't there a group who wanted to bring NHL games to Regina? They wanted to buy the Coyotes I believe?
