    It’s not official, but probably as close as it gets. It’s all contingent on key arena being remodeled. The NHL wants to be here BAD.

    Yup. Seattle is a hungry market that would balance the conferences, which is the reason the NHL awarded Vegas and ignored Quebec City. I think QC would have better luck relocating a struggling eastern franchise like Winnipeg did than hoping for expansion.

  • No chance that the hockey fans who have waited a lifetime for the NHL will be disappointed. With the instant west coast rivalry’s the arena will be sold out before the season starts. I know I will be ready to purchase my season tickets as soon as they make them available. Just hope they go with a legit name, I’m hoping for the Metropolitans.

    Seahawks fans don't like low scoring games. They rarely go as high as 10-9......or 6-6 :irishdrinkers:

    Nope, having a team beats not having a team.
    The NHL is going to be HUGE here.

    IMHO the NBA product has been piss poor over the last 30 years, I personally don’t miss it much, other than having a sports space filler between Hawks and Mariners.

    10-9 is a ton of scoring. Could you imagine if two NFL teams scored 10 times and 9 times? That's 70 to 63 if it was touchdowns. At minimum if it was all field goals that's a 30 point game hardly "low scoring".

    Scoring doesn't have to "look" big on the scoreboard to make people more excited in my opinion. If all the sudden they decided each goal in soccer was to count as 50 points would that mean it's more exciting then it was before because scores would be like 100 to 0 or 150 to 50? Of course not. Anyway, I think there is plenty of scoring in a hockey match to keep fans interested that want to see lots of scoring. The Seahawks averaged 22.9 points per game which means about 3 Scores per game. 3 Scores in a hockey game is doable, no?

    I agree, the NBA product is pretty poor, with really only 2 teams that have any significant shot at the title. I mean why waste our time why not just go straight to GS Cleveland part 4.......

    Hockey, Im very excited for, It's a dirty secret of mine every year around June. I get sucked into the playoffs. I love the game. Honestly I hardly ever watch regular season hockey so interested to see that when we get a team.

    As for the expansion draft. They really set it up for Vegas to be successful out of the gate with the rules around players that teams could keep.

    Cant wait.

    Although I will say I wont go to very many games because getting in and out of key arena is a nightmare....

    NHL playoff hockey is incredible, probably the best playoff intensity and excitement sport of all the major sports.

    Can't even imagine if we got a team how awesome the playoffs would be.

    btw, anyone who isn't excited for the NHL?................all I ask is for them to see a match in person, it's a great spectator sport.

  • Quick question- so the potential owners received expansion paper work but the league haven't heard back from the owners yet. How long does it usually take to file this stuff?

    Probably no big deal but after the failed Kings relocation and no one bidding for an NHL expansion franchise last time it opened up i'm always a bit nervous. It's also no small chunk of change.

    :ditto:

    I've been watching hockey since 2014 due to the Olympics and the subsequent Stanley Cup Playoffs. It sounds pretty cliche when you hear people say that the Stanley Cup Playoffs is on a different level and watch that before forming an opinion... but it is every word the truth.

  • Playoff hockey is incredible. The emotions, intensity and feelings over a couple weeks is like the equivalent of if the NFC Championship vs the 49ers was a best of 3 or something, it's hard to quantify.

    The expansion draft rules have really allowed Vegas to be competitive out the gate, too competitive to draft a superstar ironically.

    I do disagree with those who don't think the NBA product is good right now. The parity isn't there, but the talent level has never been higher. You can turn on a random week night game and watch absolutely excellent wide open basketball with the best athletes the league has ever seen. The NBA right now is to be appreciated at the micro level and the ability to enjoy each game in a vacuum on it's own merits, as opposed to thinking macro level about championship implications. You can turn on a random Utah v Milwaukee or something and be thoroughly entertained.

    Parity and the decades old officiating problems plague the NBA product badly in my eyes. ....and Stern and Stern Jr (Silver) can go &$%# themselves!

    I might be biased but the NHL will be a hell of a lot more enjoyable to watch on a regular basis.
