Morning Line

“We have a building in Kansas City that’s ... NHL ready. My view is the NHL would probably lean towards Kansas City first if it has to relocate a team, but I’m not a big fan of that idea. Kansas City has had a NHL team in the past—it didn’t work out real well. I would be much more in favour of a Canadian franchise if you were gonna move one.

“That said, we’d like to see all the franchises succeed. We are a bit concerned when we see drop-off in places like Atlanta, in places like Florida, Phoenix ... I’ve been to those buildings—the people who follow the sport are passionate about it. We just need more of them.”

-Paul Kelly, Executive Director of the NHLPA.  More from Kelly by Randy Sportak of he Calgary Sun.
