  • I'm betting you will be wrong or partially wrong. Seattle will get a team first or they will both get a team at the same time (see expansion). Just my .05 worth though.

    Suck on that, Portland hippies.

    they want us, NOTCHYO UGLY ASSES!


    :D Don't get me wrong, if a team came to Seattle today I would support them 100% (too far away for season tickets of course) but its the due dillgence part that could hamsting the seattle market.

    I do think this quote is quite telling:

    “So, we think the possibility is there. It’s kind of more obvious than some of the other areas. It doesn’t mean we’ve done our due diligence. We’d need to satisfy ourselves on the marketplace, but just the objective factors around the marketplace suggest Seattle would be a good hockey market.”

  • Word out of Portland was that if the Coyotes had moved, Paul Allen was ready to buy them. Seattle is a bigger market, but Allen has the most money and ready right now arena. It will be interesting to see what they do.

  • We need the arena, but we can't get it without relying on the NBA.

    The NBA being a blocker for me having a NHL team to root for just proves that, no matter that I stopped watching their crappy product six years ago, they still are irritating the crap out of me.

    If I had a billion dollars, the first thing I would do is feed hungry people. The second thing I would do is build a hockey-only arena in the Seattle area.

  • You don't exactly need the NBA anymore, the deal can be restructured so that the owner of a NHL team puts in some doe to get the arena built and some of the financial burden gets taken off H/B/N/W who are all hopeful NBA owners.

    I really don't know which sport comes first, I think both will come though.

    God knows we need it, we don't all want to be stuck with the Mariners struggling to score one run a game do we?

    But wouldn't re-structuring the deal mean that it has to go back through the whole process with City Council, and now Ed Murray's in office and the Council won't be as friendly?

    I wish the hockey arena was untethered from the basketball arena because we would have had an NHL team yesterday. Expansion to Seattle and Portland would happen in about two seconds in that scenario.

  • The new mayor wouldn't have to deal with it, just the council where votes haven't really changed. One no vote got changed out for that socialist lady who'd still probably vote no, nothing would really change either in a restructure other than a sum coming from the NHL team owner, and a date that would have shovels in the ground would be sooner than later after the EIS whenever the hell that's done.

    If Bellevue wasn't talking out both sides of its mouth, we probably would have a hockey arena already, but Bellevue says it wants an arena, but doesn't want to put any money into it. It just doesn't work like that.

    Could not possibly care any less about the NHL, but would sure like to see the Sonics back to help close the gap of the NFL off season.

    I'm for the NHL big time and if an arena can be built without killing the Seattle taxpayers..Great...Then in time I suppose there may be a way for NBA..I would hate
    that part but if majority rules then so be it ..

  • Well, we have an aerospace-based team name (Sonics), a native-themed team name/logo (Seahawks), and a fishing/shipping-based name (Mariners).

    I would say let's try a tech-based team name/logo, but there isn't one that's any good that I can think of. We could try a sea-life themed name, but I like Orcas the most and that's already part of the Canucks' logo.

    I wouldn't be averse to Evergreens as a PNW topography-themed name. I also would be fine with calling them the Metropolitans after Seattle's former Stanley Cup winner.

    I really hate getting my hopes up. I really do. Still, I can't help getting a bit excited over the prospect.

    And as for that $275 million? I'd absolutely love it if they offered it up to common joes as stock-type purchases, like the Green Bay Packers. Raise the money easily, and let us all own a part of it.

    PA is the would be owner of the Portland team. Who is more likely to land a team given that scenario? I would really love for both to land a team and get some of the wasted teams out of places they arent appreciated.

    I think whoever has it currently should be force to give it up and rename or sell it(name not team), as its our city that won the US's 1st Stanley cup, so it should be Seattle that gets the recognition for it.. like when they 1st take the ice kind of thing as an intro "You Seattle Metropolitans where the 1st US team in 1916 to win the Stanley Cup, and now here they are again your 2014/15/16 (whatever year) Seattle Metropolitans .. *cue music* *cue the announcer announcing players taking the ice* and all that cool stuff we like to do in Seattle. I get what your saying but.. I think for historical things i.e. people saying we haven't won a Stanley cup.. we did.. haha in 1916!

    I really hate getting my hopes up. I really do. Still, I can't help getting a bit excited over the prospect.

    And as for that $275 million? I'd absolutely love it if they offered it up to common joes as stock-type purchases, like the Green Bay Packers. Raise the money easily, and let us all own a part of it.


    Well thats interesting.

  • Hope the NHL expansion possibility ends better than that Sactown fiasco. I would buy a couple season tickets just to help get them off the ground. Got a few Canuck friends, one is from Edmonton and still plays league hockey in his late 40's. The other guy is originally from Vancouver, BC. So I could hang out with one of them or donate my tickets like I do with Seahawks season tickets.

    I would do the same for the NBA if they ever return while I am alive. Mariners, let me think about it some more. Love the stadium though.

  • I like the Seattle Sockeyes.

    Thunderbirds isn't bad either. Doesn't really roll off the tongue though.
