Ken Campbell of The Hockey News Says KC Making "Serious Push" For Predators

In spite of what a couple hockey writers have said recently about KC falling off the radar, Ken Campbell at The Hockey News brings us up again in a recent column. The relevant passage:
The Nashville Predators have reached an agreement with the Metro Sports Authority to keep the team in Nashville for at least another two seasons, but the deal has yet to be signed and there are rumblings Kansas City is making a serious push for the Predators to relocate there.

Los Angeles Kings governor Tim Leiweke is also the CEO of AEG, the company that owns the Sprint Center in Kansas City, a building that is ready-made for hockey and seeking a tenant. There are those who maintain it is only a matter of time before one of the NHL’s struggling franchises relocates to Kansas City.
A little contradictory to say a new deal has been reached in Nashville but KC is pushing hard.

Personally, I've always wanted NBA back in KC. Since that's not going to happen, I'm jumping on the NHL bandwagon. Be it the Coyotes or Predators, get a franchise in KC!!
