NHL Allows Seattle to Apply for Expansion Team

NHL to accept $650 million Seattle expansion application

But once the Oak View Group received approval from the Seattle City Council for a $660 million renovation of KeyArena, the National Hockey League pounced, inviting the group to apply for expansion and allowing it to conduct a season-ticket drive.

"It is envisioned that the terms of an expansion agreement, would it go forward, would basically be the same as Las Vegas - except the price", Bettman said, speaking at the league's Board of Governors meeting. And we're excited to go up north.

Bettman said the process of setting up a team in Seattle would be similar to what happened for Las Vegas, according to K5.

Barring issues with the season-ticket drive - or a snag with the KeyArena renovation plan - it appears an expansion team will be headed Seattle's way. That means a team likely wont be playing in Quebec Citys 18,259-seat Videotron Centre in the foreseeable future. "I don't think today's events have any impact on Quebec City", deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Thursday.

However, TSN reported that, as part of the purchase deal, Dundon has agreed to not apply for relocation for a period of seven years.

"This is more than just a first step, this is more than just a glancing-oh Seattle may look good".

Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr. and Dallas billionaire Tom Dundon made a presentation to the executive committee of the NHL's board of governors this morning in Manalapan, Fla. David Backes scored his first two goals of the season, helping the host Bruins beat the Coyotes 6-1. "Because we're not anticipating anybody moving right now".

"If we don't have a franchise a year from now, they should take me and put me on top of that arena and while they start tearing that arena down, they should let me dive into the middle of the rubble because I haven't done my job", said Leiweke this week. "We want to work together".

"We learned that we can get the technology to work but we needed it to work better so that it could be scalable", Commissioner Bettman said.

The league also has been eyeing Seattle as a solution to address the 16-to-15 team imbalance between its Eastern and Western conferences.
