NHL dreams are alive once again in Seattle. Bettman and Daly were spotted last week meeting with Victor Coleman. The CEO of Hudson Pacific Properties along with Jonathan Glaser of JMG Capital Management and Jeff Marks of Premier Partnerships. These guys are the first big time real deal potential team owners here in Seattle.
We have had a log run of dreams and let downs here when it comes to getting an NHL team. First we had high hopes which were shot down when Chris Hansen said he was only interested in an NBA team. We thought it was over and all done. Now we have new hopes after the meeting held by all of these individuals. From what I hear they talked about the new arena deal here and when it may be done. An NHL team could play at key arena until then.
They are set to meet again in June and hopefully we will know more about the chances of us getting our own NHL team out here. Until then we sit and wait and worry and hope.
