Although I don't think any city has both an arena and an ownership group in place, they all seem to be lacking one or the other.
Houston, Kansas City and Omaha all have state of the art arenas that can host hockey in place. I don't know about ownership and the building in Houston already has the Rockets as a major tenant. Kansas City has been desperate to get a permenant tenant in place. Once again don't know the ownership groups, but the guy that owns the Royals and helped fund the arena is David Glass who is married to a Walton and worth billions. In terms of Omaha, I do think if you could get Buffett interested he is very into doing anything for his home state it would be a huge victory. Omaha is a lot bigger than people think. It could be a very sustainable market and a huge victory for the league.
