I do not understand this post. Do Torontonians actually put 8 people in the cab of a pickup? Also the rink would be Saskatoon.

Yeah we'll see who is the real REALISTIC one before long...and who is too hyped up on Sportsnet newsflashes.

You are basing your doubts on what exactly? Surely not the superior population-noble heritage nonsense of your earlier post?

Want to make it interesting? Avatar bet? Winner chooses the loser's avatar for a month?

Terms should be obvious. You win if there isn't a 2013 NHL season and I win if there is one.

It's hilarious listening to him talk about hockey, he's absolutely clueless about all aspects of the sport. He bases all of his opinions on assumptions and statements made by guys like Shannon and Cox, which is sad in itself.

He asks the right questions.

The questions that Bob Mackenzie would never dare to bring up.

So basically you aren't confident in your opinion. Exactly what I thought.

I'm pretty confident there won't be a season.

My celebrity is too great here to jeopardize over some silly bet.

Let's go Blue Jays!

Well let's see how this turns out. Would certainly be more optimistic than before, but we've been through the up and downs of this thing too many times already. Enough idiots on both sides to derail things if they aren't careful.

Population dispersal - Saskatoon ranked 21st in Canada in population. Regina 24th.
Corporate sponsorship - You know that really famous Saskatchewan company that can get behind the idea of spending a billion dollars on bringing a NHL team to Regina or Saskatoon? Encroaching on any/all of Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Winnipeg territories? Me neither.
Lack of NHL arena(s) or plans to build one in the near future
Lack of support or drive behind the idea (See: Quebec City fans invading arenas in the NHL a year ago)
No history of NHL teams such as in Winnipeg.

Potash.

And that's about it.

And I'm pretty sure China owns them now.
