Arena Wars: Chris Daniels Speaks to Bob McCown

Chris Daniels, who has reported extensively on Seattle's arena situation for Seattle's King5 TV, spoke to Sportsnet Radio 590's Bob McCown about the Arena process and the prospect of the NHL coming to Seattle and playing in the existing Key Arena. Includes a discussion about whether the NHL could come to Seattle and when any commitments would have to be made, whether the people of Seattle 'pine' for an NHL franchise, and whether the proposed Arena could be built on the back of an NHL franchise only if the NBA didn't also return to the market. 

Listen here (starting at about 31:39)

MacLean & McCown Go At It

from Bruce Dowbiggin of the Globe and Mail,

The surprising news that former Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Doug MacLean was joining forces with Jim Balsillie, whom he had roundly criticized the past year, prompted an acrimonious radio interview between MacLean and radio host Bob McCown on yesterday’s edition of Prime Time Sports.

McCown had spent the better part of two hours ripping MacLean for what he characterized as an opportunistic move before bringing him on the show.

After deliberately calling the veteran radio host “MacGowan” during the interview (McCown riposted by calling him “Mac-Kleen”), a pugnacious MacLean accused McCown of backstabbing him. “It’s not unlike you when someone’s not in the studio to battle you face to face that you’re at your best. … For you to say it’s suicidal for me [to join Balsillie] with the NHL … it was suicidal for me with the NHL when I became a friend of yours.”
