The problems with the Grizzlies were that they weren't getting a lot of corporate sponsorship because the team was perennially awful. The low exchange rate also hurt them badly. I'd guess that if you polled Vancouverites, they'd love for the Grizzlies to return.

Likewise a recent poll showed that the vast majority of Quebecers want to bring MLB back to Montreal.

I don't think so. The Raptors have had consistently solid attendance and are profitable, despite sucking horribly.
