I agree.

Ok, so the deal is dependant on getting either an NBA or NHL team? Means no shovels until one (or both) is acquired yes? I read there that they anticipate an NBA team first, but if the NHL comes first, they could potentially just shift that right?

An environment review would mostly be a rubberstamp right? As for KCC, I know little of that, sounded like to me most of the major leg work was done.
