Seriously though, has anyone ever shown interest from the city?

Also, wasn;t Hartford even in the bidding as late as 2007 for Nashville?
Have always thought Omaha would be a good market, has corporate partners and potential owners. The arena seats around 18,000 more when not in a hockey capacity. They would struggle with free agents, but would own Nebraska being the only pro team in town. Passionate sports fans and the northern plains are very into hockey. I don't think they would fail, but I don't know that they will be realistically looked at by the league either.
