AYE we gonna see some Islanduh hockey ovah hea!

sorry, couldn't help it


I don't think Phoenix relocates to Quebec City ... Seattle is trying to build a major new arena (I've seen Key Arena, and would compare it to a larger, indoor version of Cooper Stadium); and if that's the case, it's either NBA or NHL. The NBA is already a failed experiment there, so one would think that the NHL might be willing to test the waters of a city that's less than 100 miles from the Canadian border.

Being in Spokane, we get a lot of news first-hand from over there. They really want that arena. One thing about people in Seattle, if they want it and put their minds to it, they typically get it. (see Safeco Field).

For me, I'd love the "short" 6 hour drive to see the Jackets two times a year; and I still don't wish the Coyotes to move, much from fear that their moving might create a trend with struggling teams...
