NHL is ridiculous they could've had Oklahoma City or Kansas City, they both wanted NHL teams a few years back until they realized they could get a NBA team
both cities are decent hockey markets epecially Oklahoma, there better off there then Phoenex and Atlanta
The only legit NBA cities in the States that is left, is Kansas City and Vegas, there the only two that are NBA ready, and the only team that is allowed in Vegas are the Kings, the Maloofs would not let anyone move into there city, you could argue St Louis but there is a real danger that it might turn in a memphis type situaton, the Rams might leave town so how legit is that if they can't hold down 8 games in the NFL
Seattle won't be ready for a long time, they have to build a Arena, and cleary no one in seattle wants to pay for it, thats a huge reason why they were sold and moved,
Vancouver is the only other legit market with a ready made top of the line building for basketball in Rogers Arena, not to mention the economics make more sense now then back then Vancouver was first awarded the Grizz
if any owner wants to make barrels of cash Vancouver would be the no 1 pick, I'm sure someone will eventually realize this in the next decade and bring a team back
