NHL to Seattle? 

Post#1 » by Cactus Jack » Wed Apr 12, 2017 8:22 pm

Seattle may be on the verge of getting an NHL team...

The Oak View Group (OVG), run by Tim Leiweke and Irving Azoff, has signed a future KeyArena concessionaire partnership with Buffalo-based Delaware North — a food-services company owned by Jeremy Jacobs, considered one of the most powerful NHL figures outside of commissioner Gary Bettman...The longtime Boston Bruins owner is chairman of the NHL’s board of governors and an influential figure on the league’s powerful executive committee, which has huge sway over major issues — expansion being one of them.

“Jeremy Jacobs is without a doubt the most powerful owner in the NHL,’’ Ken Campbell, senior writer for The Hockey News in Canada, said Tuesday. “And he’s the one who has the most sway when it comes to the executive committee — which is where the real power lies in the NHL. It’s not so much with the entire board of governors; it’s with the executive committee, and he’s the alpha male of the executive committee. So that’s really all you need to know.’’

Probably a better chance than the Nuggets winning a playoff series in 94.

Mutombo, man! I still have nightmares. That was an epic choke job. Payton & Ricky Pierce didn't get along & the chemistry of the team was off. Otherwise that team should have won the title that year. :(

It's Seattle or bust for future NHL expansion. The league has demonstrated they prefer the Seattle market to a team in Quebec. The city is in the final process of securing a new arena that would house hockey.
