I doubt it. Does anyone know if their arena is outdated? There has been no mention whatsoever of them leaving St Louis. If they fail to get an NBA team in the near future, I suppose it would not be worth it to build a new arena, thus them leaving. Just across state in Kansas City they have a new state-of-the art arena coming in, perhaps they will go there.

The Savvis Center (which Savvis is getting out of) was built in the early 90's. The first in the new-arena-revolution

You are going to start seeing a lot of teams going up for sale or moving, closing down, I believe. Portland is looking to get a team probably placed there as well as putting one back in Hartford. I'll have to look more into the details of this and get back to you on it. It's just going to be great to have hockey back!

As much as I liked the Whalers, Hartford is a ****** hockey town. Dont expect them back anytime soon. I could see maybe a team in Portland, or maybe Salt Lake City. Who knows?

The blues have a sold fan base and will most likely stay put. The Lauries made a point of saying the government will not help them taxwise. I believe they will stay.

The Penguins on the otherhand could very likely be the team that ends up in Portland. It's possible the The Florida Panthers are not long for this world and the carolina hurricanes will end up in winnipeg sometime down the line, if they change hands.

I'll retract Hartford.

The Cleveland Barons? The Oakland Seals? The San Diego Gulls?
