Seattle gets the okay from the NHL

Recommended Posts

That is a non-story.

All it allows Seattle to do is file an application, it's no different than walking into WalMart and filing a job application, it means next to nothing, anyone can file an application.

It is just a piece of paper, nothing more.

It doesn't change the facts that Seattle is not a hockey town, Hartford is, Hartford has investors and a new ice sheet, Seattle has neither.

Besides filing the expansion application, Seattle ownership group will also be allowed to conduct season-ticket deposit drive.
Seattle has had major league professional and minor league professional and major junior hockey league teams almost nonstop since 1915. Maybe 7 or 8 years total without major league pro or minor league pro or major junior hockey team in over a 100 years.
And Seattle does have investors. They have Oak View Group investing $600 million in private money to renovate Key Arena. They have team ownership group that includes equity banker David Bonderman and movie producer Jerry Bruckheimer willing to invest $650 million for NHL expansion team.

There are numerous investors, the Governor has mentioned it many times, it has been widely reported on by Evo and others.  The Governor, Howard Baldwin, the Chase family, they most likely know who these rich investors and and they could be part of the investor group as well.

You guys don't get how it works. Our investors are keeping it quiet...

...

 

BECAUSE THERE ARE NO INVESTORS!

 

 

Lies! Amazon is going to buy CVS in 4 weeks then technically own Aetna forcing Aetna to move it's HQ back to Hartford. After all this happens Amazon will then airlift the arena out in Quebec City and drop it right on top of where the XL center stands. Finally they will pay a $800 million dollar expansion fee to top the $650 million offer Seattle want's to pay to get a new team back to Hartford!

You ever think the Baldwins won't be involved "if' the NHL ever considers Hartford given their track record.

The Baldwins will be involved, they are our best hope for bringing back the NHL in the coming years.

The phrase that is always thrown around behind the scenes in Hartford is that the Chase family has the checkbook, while the Baldwins have the phonebook; Chase has the money and Baldwin has the connections in the league, and between them both and other large rich investors, the Whalers coming back in the next 3 years is a sure thing.

Interesting...I was thinking the same thing, actually, but I think they would have to clear out the XL Center first. No?
