      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

Article on Bleachers Report says Seattle Coyotes "Possibility"

Recommended Posts

Just some interesting info I managed to find. Its looking like Seattle is really pushing to have a team there. I don't know how credible the info on here is but Im extremely excited with any info regarding a Seattle hockey franchise. Heres the original article. It has some Twitter exerts that I was unable to post. http://bleacherrepor...sible-franchise Enjoy B)

Seattle may have missed out on returning an NBA team for now, but there are currently talks about bringing an NHL franchise to the Emerald City.

On Sunday afternoon, Seattle mayor Mike McGinn confirmed that he has indeed talked with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman about potentially bringing an NHL team to the Pacific Northwest, possibly the Phoenix Coyotes.

According to TSN's Darren Dreger, the Gosbee group has a "handshake agreement" in place to purchase the Coyotes and keep them in Phoenix with a new 15-year lease, but the Glendale city council still has to approve the deal.

That crucial meeting will take place on June 25, per CBC's Hotstove report.

If that deal isn't accepted, then an investment group led by Ray Bartoszek and AnthonyLanza will purchase the franchise for $220 million, according to CBC.

The new team would likely play at Key Arena initially, but the former home of the NBA's SuperSonics isn't ideal for hockey. Plans for a new arena, however, which would host both basketball and hockey, were put in place when investor Chris Hansen came close to purchasing the Sacramento Kings.

Currently, the Western Hockey League's Seattle Thunderbirds play at the ShoWareCenter in Kent, which is south of Seattle.

Losing the "fight for the Kings" was undoubtedly disappointing for Seattle fans, but the possibility of getting an NHL team is enticing for not only the city, but also the league.

A Seattle-Vancouver NHL rivalry has the potential to be a thrilling one.

Nevertheless, as we've come to expect with this never-ending saga, this is far from a done deal. But it appears we will finally know the true fate of the Coyotes in the next few weeks.
