Gary Bettman is pushing for what..huh?

As you may have heard, Mitch Levy is reporting that Gary Bettman, yes Gary Bettman is pushing the NHL Board of Governors to approve an expansion team for Seattle for the 2014-15 Season.

The short of it is: I’m hearing that the NHL Commish is encouraging the board of governors to make an expansion team available to Seattle.

If approved, the new expansion Seattle NHL club would cost approximately $275M. It would begin playing here in the 2014-2015 season.

This is the only outlet reporting so let’s try to temper enthusiasm everyone. Joe Yerdon picked it up but it is just putting some hockey color on Mitch’s report. As New York City and Toronto start to wake up we should get a good idea how real this really is. Should be an interesting day. Very exciting but lets stay calm, this is a process and as we have already learned, we will not win every vote.
