On Thursday, the Emerald City was given permission by the league to apply for the expansion process and was given a price tag of $650 million.
"It is a work in progress but we're very confident that we're going to get this to work", Commissioner Bettman said, "and the amount of data that it will provide in addition to creating opportunities for broadcasters to use it in real time is pretty exciting". "From everything I know viscerally, I think it will be a good market". "I think the geographic rivalry with Vancouver as potential will be nice".
"We learned that we can get the technology to work but we needed it to work better so that it could be scalable", Commissioner Bettman said. "The board will ultimately make a decision".
