500m arena. Its more expensive to build a NHL arena than it is a NBA arena. When private investors are offering nearly 300m in private funds for the arena you need both to make it really viable.
The fact it took the sonics leaving before a properly built arena for NHL games was ever gonna happen. The oh Key arena is good enough we don't need a new one argument. And some people up here do believe that which is kinda pathetic.
