Does anyone really believe they would have started building a brand new 18K arena in QC without assurances from the NHL that a NHL team would go into it?
Btw Seattle is also aiming to get a NBA team. If NBA BOG approves Kings sale to Seattle's group the arena will get built. If that happens shovel meets ground could potentially happen as early as this September/October once final approval by city and county post EIS review.
