Any rumblings of this out in QC? Is PKP funding a portion of the arena? If so this other owner doesn't make sense.
He was talking about the Desmarais family, one of the richest family in Canada. Saw the interview with Lawless, but he sounded like a guy speculating. Bettman went to Desmarais to ask him if he was interested. He is not. And the Desmarais are at war with PKP, no way they rent an arena runned by Québécor.

Seattle has not yet confirmed the construction of a new arena, and dont have a suitable temporary arena.
