MLS Expansion in the Northwest

The MLS expansion rumour mill seems focused on either Seattle or Portland getting an MLS expansion team (maybe promoting the existing USL1 team already in the city). What about the other Pacific Northwestern option though?

What, you don't know where I mean? Why, Vancouver. Home of the Whitecaps FC.

They're a pretty solid looking USL1 club (the reigning league champs even), they seem to be well coached, and they play in a Soccer Friendly stadium (which is supposed to be expanded to seat ~10,000 for the U20 World Cup -- and might be able to be expanded to fit even more).

I'm not in a position to go making the decision, but I do think it's an interesting idea. What do you think?
