Should add Red deer according to Red deer website population in the future could hit 300,000 which is big enough for a NHL hockey franchise.

Hamilton
OR
401 Highway between Cambridge and Woodstock, which would be close to Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, London, Guelph, and acceptable drive for Mississauga/Brampton etc. and likely out of Toronto's territorial rights

I think the city of Saskatchewan would be perfect for NHL hockey.

You wanted to say Saskatoon? Or Regina? Saskatchewan is a province.

I voted for the province of Saskatchewan... based only on the fact that I happen to live there.

Winnipeg and Quebec both tried and failed, I don't see how they would deserve it over Hamilton.

Colorado & Minnesota "tried and failed" too. Hamilton makes the most sense economically though.

He said exactly what he wanted. He is also well aware that Saskatchewan is a province.

And? My point is that a city who hasn't even gotten the opportunity should get the chance before previous failures(within reason). If Colorado & Minnesota hadn't gotten their new teams I would say the same thing, the fact that they became successful is besides the point from a right and wrong point of view.

Realistically you would need at least 600,000 to support an NHL franchise.

I said Winnipeg because it has a large enough population and there are no other teams in the province or surrounding areas from which the new team might take fans/business from. For instance a concern with Hamilton is that it might hurt the Sabres.
