Monday, Seattle City Council approved to do a $600 million renovation on Key Arena in a 7-1 vote. "I think we'll meet the benchmarks we need to meet and in the mean time we'll be negotiating the side agreements, doing the environmental work and moving forward so we can open when the National Hockey League wants to come".
"Where we are with the cap going forward.it's certainly going to help us, and really continue along with the plan that [general manager Peter Chiarelli] has for our team", said Nicholson. But keeping its eyes on Seattle won't prevent the NHL from combating suggestions of other expansion - or relocation - possibilities, especially since other cities have already either openly campaigned for hockey or drawn previous consideration from the league.
Seattle is the only city being considered for expansion at the moment, Bettman said. The NHL has long coveted Seattle, but the city never had a singular ownership group or arena, which hindered its chances - until now. "People from Seattle come up to Vancouver just to see what Vancouver has to offer, so I can see that being an interesting play".
Bettman said the Board of Governors has agreed to accept and consider the proposal, allowing the group to conduct a season ticket drive. Before that process, the league opened an expansion-application process for any interested parties and received offers from groups for Las Vegas and Quebec City.
"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.
"We learned that we can get the technology to work but we needed it to work better so that it could be scalable", Commissioner Bettman said.
"I'm hoping to meet with or speak with Mr. Bonderman soon as well as having constant communication with Mr. Leiweke", Durkan said. "But I think there is a lot of pent up appetite in Seattle for this", Durkan said.
Durkan was asked for specifics on the benchmarks. "I know there's an aggressive schedule for season tickets and the like", she said. We've got to show that we're moving that around. "I have every confidence that that partnership will go very smoothly".
