Carolina: They are selling out games and have a nice young nucleus to build from. They'll be good for a good while.

Atlanta: Attendance is the highest it's ever been, and still has room to grow. Ownership loves this team and can only get better.

Phoenix: They just built a new arena for hockey. Ain't no way in hell this team is moving any time soon.

Florida: Them relocating is possible. Management should decide where their on-the-ice product is going first.

Pittsburgh: Most likely to move.

Anaheim: I think they can thrive in southern California.

Wasn't the point of getting a cap supposed to help all 30 teams survive and thrive in their current markets? We won't be seeing the full benefits of the salary cap for a few years. One, maybe two teams would move, but that would be it, not a mass exodus.

Talk is that the Blazers are on their way out, as they're apparently losing $100 million this season.

That's for all the bail, right?

Either the Vikes or Twins or both this state will never pass stadium bills then after the teams are gone watch them pass bills for teams that no longer exist.

I hope the blazer's stay. but that's dependent on paul allen, the group running the rose garden now, and the city all getting their stuff together. I don't think losing your established NBA franchise (and FWIW I believe NBA are statistically the easiest of the four major leagues to have in a small market) would make you that appealling for anybody else, and if we're serious about getting *any* other team (NHL would rule, I'd love an MLB team but it'll probably never happen, and I've openly laughed when people have suggested NFL) we can't lose the Blazers.

I think in a year or two it'll all be hashed out, McMillan will turn the Blazers around with that solid young core, and it'll be Rip City all over again baby! *rock*

A's have almost ZERO shot of moving, but if they do, theyll move to Sacramento. No San Jose, no Portland, no New Jersey (WTF?), SACRAMENTO. And remember that. Dont even begin to believe those A's to San Jose articles, there in the bay area papers once a week. NOT GONNA HAPPEN

MLB: Florida Marlins. (Hopefully Jeffrey Loria will come to his senses and move back up to Montreal, but no chance of that happening...not yet anyway.)

NFL: New Orleans Saints, Minnesota Vikings and/or Jacksonville Jaguars. It breaks my heart to see what New Orleans has went through this past year. I believe keeping the Saints is the least of their worries.

NBA: Tough call, but I think the Hornets should join the Saints in the Louisiana exodus. The Clippers should move back down to San Diego.

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins, without a doubt. Not even the great Mario Lemieux can save his own team.

CFL: None. All 9 teams are intact!!!

Fremont isn't part of the Giants' territory, so don't rule that out.

Actually they aren't selling out :censored:, but they've got an ironclad lease, so they aren't going anywhere.

Wishful thinking loses out to reality yet again. My friends and I were actually just talking about this yesterday, and we don't really need the NHL in Milwaukee. I'll take my Admirals over the NHL at a fraction of the ticket price, and if I really need an NHL fix, I'll just go down I-43 to Chicago.

I wouldn't be so sure about that ... apparently the Gooberma? I mean, Gliebermans ? are thinking about pulling the plug on the Renegades: TSN.ca
