It gives them legit leverage, though (even if Bettman would rather keep Seattle as an out for one of his struggling franchises - Isles, Panthers, Devils...? Then Detroit and Columbus to the East?).

Just a matter of time before a deal is struck in Edmonton on a new arena - with a significant chunk of public money. I'll be astounded if the city doesn't knuckle under.
