The NHL Board of Governors meets this week in Boca Raton. There has been a lot of talk about the NHL expanding by two teams.
And, why not? League revenues are up. New TV contracts are inked and funnel a lot of greenbacks (and loonies) the NHL’s way. Of course, not as many loonies as the Canadian dollar is down to about $.88 American.
Anyway…all this talk and is Kansas City mentioned? Nope.
Why? Same reason as last year, and two years ago and, heck, before the first pane of glass was squeegeed at Sprint Center. THERE IS NO OWNER FOR AN NHL TEAM IN KANSAS CITY.
Though, I find it interesting the Board of Governors is meeting in Boca. If the BOG, their lackeys, PR flaks and the media that is covering the BOG meetings all decided to go to a Panthers game, would it double the Panthers attendance?
