for renovation for hockey and basketball use.
not on the current slate of topics for NHL owners meeting, but I expect them to add it soon.
With 31 teams they always intended to add another team after Vegas, wasn't sure it would be this soon.
I think it's pretty close to a done deal for a Seattle hockey team in the next couple years (2020 start)
I don't hate expansion, but I think at some point the talent gets diluted, you get franchises in cities that are not passionate about the sport, and the moves hurt the sport overall while maybe benefiting the other owners.
And it's not a done deal it would be expansion, teams like Arizona, Florida, or I guess Carolina (though I haven't heard them mentioned) could relocate.
