Katz bought the Thrashers. We will now have 2 NHL teams.

Tencer seems to think that they've agreed on a funding model. Says that Katz Group is "excited".

I remember the Mayor on Gregor's show a month or two ago. He asked him if we would have announcement about when they plan to really move forward or break ground or something to that effect by June? The Mayor said I hope we have can have that announcement before then. Hopefully that is what this will be.

This definitely has my interest level peaked, especially with the sudden rush to get the news out late at night.

Tweet by city councillor Don Iveson (@doniveson): #yegcc just came back in public - voted on a motion to approve a framework for #yegarena deal - details to be kept in private. Passes 8-5.

You'd think Katz would be there for any major arena announcement-- He's at the Canucks game right now.

If both sides have approved a funding framework, it's time to build...assuming they came up with the shortfall $ somehow..

If they agreed on a framework, they've come up with the money. Details to be kept private according to @doniveson on Twitter.

About time, says I.

Likely didn't know an agreement would be made and voted on today until it was too late.

Hope you have plenty of pop and hot pockets to tide you over. You might be holding out for a long time.

Can we pin this? I'm thrilled for the people of Edmonton man. This is better than any win I've experienced so far as an Oilers fan!

Tencer says they have an out of market NHL game on and will not be able to stream the press conference on 630 CHED. Lame...
