On top of that, it's the most modern hockey arena in all of the Nordic countries. Or at least it was when built last autumn.

I can't say that I would see any problem with them joining either. Especially this club and it's owner. They do absolutely everything right.

They have literally transformed Stavanger into Norway's own "hockey-town".

The way they operate is to bring as much(positive) media attention as possible towards the club and the sport. They have the Movember campaign, they pulled off a Teddy bear toss this christmas and they entered the Bled- and Continental Cup's. They had their own cup between the city's three teams. They arranged the first ever(as far as I know?) national-friendlies outside of the Oslo-region between Norway and Switzerland/Slovakia in January this year.

They do so much for hockey it's insane, especially when you realize it's a Norwegian team on the west-coast.
