TeamEd: sno man: TeamEd: Nostalgia is good for business, though. In Ottawa it's a big part of the feeling that the team is part of the community and there for good.

plus you get to claim to be a past champion instantly...

might wanna save the three colour striped sweater for a Winter Classic, though...

That is exactly the throwback I'm thinking of. That thing is awesome in the same way the Sens "O" sweater is great, plus candy cane colours. That sweater would sell extremely well.

Renegade Pervert Yeah, the nostalgia didn't mean anything when the team was afwul and in bankruptcy, but it's a real asset now.

Ha, very true, it worked when they were dragging out Frank Finnegan's corpse to rally the troops before landing the franchise, not so much in 2003... Christ I honestly have no idea how we kept them. The Euge got the sweetest deal in the world when he saved them.

I see what you did there.

They could play at the "Brand you've never heard of Arena"

Oh, and they would have playoff beards all season. The flannel sweaters and skinny uni pants might be a bit ugly.

LessO2: Won't happen.   Bettman is likely using Seattle as a pawn to get things going between Glendale and the Coyotes.

Key Arena only seats 11,000 for hockey configuration.  Add about 3k more for "can't see half the ice" seats.

It's not like Bettman has ever yanked a team away from a city recently.......

/fark you with no lube in a cold locker room for taking the Thrashers away

Nope.  We're always at the other end of that transaction.

Cagey B: Since we're building the new arena and all, I say Sacramento steps in and grabs Seattle's NHL bid as well. Not because I like hockey, but more because I'm a fan of sports rage.

Dear Phoenix
As a Seattlite and a sports fan, I have to say that this would be a great thing for sports in Seattle.
So for that reason alone, please allow me to reassure you that it's not going to happen.
