NHL Invites Seattle To Apply For Expansion Team 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Dec 8, 2017 7:40 am

Seattle has been invited to apply for NHL expansion, commissioner Gary Bettman said Thursday.

The NHL's price for Seattle's expansion bid: $650 million.

"It is envisioned that the terms of an expansion agreement, would it go forward, would basically be the same as Las Vegas -- except the price," Bettman said, speaking at the league's Board of Governors meeting. "If we decide for whatever reason for the 2020 season, instead of expanding, using an existing franchise, that's always an option. But that's not something we're focused on right now. Because we're not anticipating anybody moving right now."
