I read it is a 20,000 seat facility and it got the go-ahead. Primarily will be a concert venue (built for that purpose), so an NHL franchise would be a bonus but not a necessity.
Can't imagine MLSE is too happy about this.....but my twisted way of thinking makes me see this as the push to make MLSE be in absolute agreement with a team in Hamilton. If another team is going in the area....MLSE would (I am certain) prefer a team in Hamilton over one in Markham.
So...if one is coming to Southern Ontario....I expect MLSE will be more on board with Hamilton now than they ever were before, which isn't much. But if it HAS to happen....and if MLSE has any pull (which I understand they do) this is good news for Hamilton's NHL hopes....but bad news for their concert bookings at Copps.
