^^^ Thanks for posting that link.... it's going to be interesting to see how the NBA deals with this, as the City's stepped up to the plate with owners waiting in the wings. I dont see how Stern & the NBA could now possibly justify moving that franchise north to Seattle. I guess they could start pulling a Karmano's, demanding 'X' number of ST's be sold then moving the goalposts all over the field but still... not that I ever thought Seattle was logistically viable with a rushed relo this summer of the Coyotes if indeed that was ever even considered, but now with this, seems to me Seattle's just been handed a new & much higher numbered card in the wait line pursuant to the NBA & NHL. Levin had it right in wanting to build a hockey specific facility in Bellevue as clearly Hansen & Mr.Microsoft's only real focus & interest is in the NBA. And thats a shame. The NHL shouldnt ever have to take a backseat...
