We need both to make the arena financially viable long term. Hansen is set to get 80m in public bonds from the county if we get a NHL team before the transfer date of the arena.

Its in his best interest to get hockey its just that he won't own it. I'm sure there will be something worked out between the two ownership groups involving revenue
Previous reports lead me to belief that Hanson owned the property where the venue was to be built and could purchase more property next to existing,would receive some government funding to build but he would control the venue itself.It also implied that he needed another tenant to make a go of it.Do you have a link or source i can follow up on as to who will control this venue?
