    Seems like the NHL expansion to Seattle is in full gear:

    Seattle has approved a deal to renovate Key Arena making it a state of the art facility that could house an NHL or NBA team. They have an ownership group (Jerry Bruckheimer is one of the leaders) that has expressed interest, and the league has long desired the Seattle market. BoG meetings this week, so there could be some sort of public acknowledgement that they’re looking at it.

    Makes taking the money from Quebec City feel a little slimy knowing they likely have no plans to go back there. About the only chance of that left is a sale of the Hurricanes to a QC group.

    And to Seattle they’re (probably) going. Still some hurdles, but Seattle was always the second expansion target when they opened up the process a couple years ago. At least this time, they’re not playing the part in a farce by saying there’s room for QC. And speaking of, one of the prime relocation prospects is heading out the window, as Peter Karmanos has sold a majority share of the Hurricanes. And with Houston open to the NHL post-Alexander, the writing’s on the wall in Quebec.

    It’ll be good times when the owners receive a $650 million payout for the Seattle expansion fee while in a lockout. Good times I tell you.

    No hearing for Marchand for the hit on Tavares.

    The Sens have asked their players with no-trade clauses to provide their lists. This includes Erik Karlsson. Karlsson made waves few weeks ago when he said he would be taking top dollar when he reaches free agency in July 2019. It’ll be interesting to monitor this development of the next year. The Sens are a budget team, and according to the article, Melnyk is not happy with Karlsson’s comments.

    Ottawa’s a sneaky bad situation. Melnyk is proving to be ultra cheap, and the team, regardless of which coach is behind the bench, regularly punches above its weight. And they’re still out in Kanata, with no progress on a downtown stadium. If there’s a team in Canada I see relocating, it’s the Sens.
