Like the Manchester Uniteds and the Manchester Citys or the LA Lakers and the LA Clippers out there... would you support a second Vancouver hockey team?

EDIT: in the NHL

I'm not jumping off the bandwagon. Just feels like Vancouver can support two teams in the NHL and we might have better chances of bringing the damn cup home.

So now you want to limit it just to the NHL? If that's the case, then how could we all be Canucks?

Seriously though, I don't think the market could handle it. If a team moved here and it did poorly it would get no support at all. People would stay following their Canucks. Sure there are enough people in the area to fill an arena for an extra team, but are there enough corporate sponsors and such to make it work?

I think things are perfect in Vancouver (the whole Lower Mainland that is) for sports right now. For hockey you can choose from the NHL, AHL, WHL & BCHL. There's also the CFL, MLS, WLA and Single A baseball. Other than maybe the NLL, what more could you want?

You'd have to for awhile (15+ yrs)

Everything east of Surrey & Coquitlam is too small...

The would be in Surrey if we were to get one.

Metropolitan Vancouver isn't populous enough to support two teams. I don't see a whole lot of Canuck fans migrating to see another team play (and dishing out an additional $200 bucks for tickets) more than a couple times a year.

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If the two teams meet in the playoffs, there'd be riot and mayhem regardless on who wins!

Well if a new Canadian league was formed. Imagine finally being rid of Bettmans nonsense league.

no... vancouver isn't nearly large enough. it wasn't so long ago the canucks themselves were struggling with attendance. i doubt vancouver can host another team.

Seattle, Quebec or maybe Hamilton could work.
