If the MOU is going to be changed, I am sure that Hansen might take the financial risk of the arena without an NBA team. The MOU cannot change without his or the City of Seattle's consent and any NHL owner will be crazy to risk his investment if the NBA never comes to Seattle. So IMO I think Hansen is taking all risks to make everything work and I am not worried about funding or MOU's because there would not be a plan B if this was not covered with the city of Seattle and the NHL.
