It makes sense! It's a no brainer. Same as the Amerks becoming Buffalo's farm team once again. Geographically perfect for all of us.

Edmontons owners where taking a tour of the arena in seattle. Wonder of they are taking a page from the pens playbook with the KC deal. I wonder if the wolves remain and calgary moves there.

The owner of the Wolves Don Levin, from what I heard does not get along with the Hawks.

Only if the Hawks would allow the Wolves to do their own thing......

The Wolves have been doing their own thing since 1994. They have been very successful at it, mostly at the Hawks expense.

I can see Don Levin getting a NHL team in Seattle (or maybe Portland) in a few years and bringing his Wolves players up there, maybe to Abbotsford. Chicago is too good of an AHL market to leave, so somebody else would move their team in, perhaps Calgary or another NHL team with an AHL affiliate ripe for relocation.
