Sam Mellinger of the Star has a depressingly realistic look at the chances for KC gaining an NBA or NHL team anytime soon. A couple of lines that stood out to me:
"...Anschutz Entertainment Group is set to lose exclusive negotiating rights on landing a team."
AEG apparently had a three year window with exclusive negotiating rights. But what does that mean - Who else would be negotiating?
And regarding the Penguins:
"Revisionist history says Kansas City was just used as leverage, but decision-makers with the Penguins had begun planning on what the franchise would look like in Kansas City."
Doesn't matter either way, but interesting.
