^ Aquilini can probably get a bargain, considering Heisley's losing money year in and year out with the team IN Memphis. Having another franchise in Rogers Arena for the other 41 home dates (while the Canucks are away) makes business sense. I think Aquilini will eventually get a team. Look at how he's handling the Canucks as a sports business. Making money. Another NBA franchise may be more challenging, but if Aquilini's as schrewd a business as he seems to be, then he can market this the team out of a fan base that already exists here in vancouver.

I think it'll get done sooner than we realize.

The whole idea of contraction. It just gets worse for Stern, doesn't it? Vancouver is the gateway to Asia, as much as Toronto seems to be the gateway for European players to come play in the NBA.
