So Seattle is officially allowed to file for an expansion NHL team, isn’t that just the weirdest thing to hear? That they’re ALLOWED to give the league some money and apply for a chance to be considered to get a professional hockey team? Okay maybe I’m just getting steamed clams over something silly.
Did you know that Seattle had an NHL hockey team? a Stanley cup winning team as well? I didn’t and I must admit, I’m a bit ashamed….don’t worry I’ll head over to the service Canada building and hand over my passport and Maple Syrup. I’ll miss it up here..
Seattle Metropolitans. That’s a good name, and part of me hopes that if the city gets their team, they’ll keep that name. I mean, all signs point to yes, right? an extra team means 16 teams in each division, there is a baked in rivalry with the Canucks, and come on, have you seen how intense Seattle sports fans are? they even ripped off the whole “extra man” thing from the Riders, mind you, it’s the “12th man” in American football.
so lets do this, NHL board of governors….hooded figures in a dark room, grant permission for more hockey teams, give one back to Quebec, heck, Reader said Houston, sounds good to me! Vegas seems to work, lets get more teams going, It’ll only decrease the probability of Toronto winning the cup, annnnd I’m fine with that.
