NHL Allows Seattle to Apply for Expansion Team

YouTube

The NHL Board of Governors, meeting in Florida on Thursday, voted to accept an application for an expansion team in Seattle.

On Thursday, the Emerald City was given permission by the league to apply for the expansion process and was given a price tag of $650 million.

"We've agreed as a league to take and consider an expansion application, and to let them run in the next few months, a season-ticket drive", Bettman said.

Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan said she spoke with Tim Leiweke, part of the Oak View Group that got approval to renovate KeyArena, and that they "couldn't be more thrilled".

Bettman said the process of setting up a team in Seattle would be similar to what happened for Las Vegas, according to K5. The Vegas expansion fee was $500 million.

"Obviously, there a lot of differences between Seattle and Quebec City, not the least of which is our conference alignment", Bettman said.

"Pete and I built a relationship", Dundon said Thursday morning after meeting with the board's executive committee.

Why Walmart changed its name
Inc. now owns 1,526 shares of the retailer's stock worth $115,000 after buying an additional 1,252 shares in the last quarter. The retailer reported $1.00 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, topping the consensus estimate of $0.97 by $0.03.

However, if you had Houston penciled in as the destination for the NHL's 32nd franchise, it's probably time to flip over to the eraser.

"I don't have all of those in front of me, but we'll get them". "If I wanted to be positive, I'd say one of the things we kept harping on is we need another team in the (Western Conference) before we consider expanding in the East".

At first glance, this might've sounded hopeful: A Texas mogul purchasing an National Hockey League team around the same time Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta expressed interest in bringing a team to Houston. We'll be working together closely.

"We're in the process of working with some technology companies to invent technology that doesn't now exist, because it's more complicated to do this than in any of the other sports for a whole host of reasons which relate to the attributes of our games, the physical contact, the sticks, the speed and everything else", Commissioner Bettman said.

The sale of the Carolina Hurricanes could be announced as early as this afternoon.

"Wrong, wrong, wrong. The club is not going anywhere with Mr. Dundon's purchase".

Karmanos said having a majority owner committed to Raleigh was important.
