Silver to Recasner: Expansion 'may be revisited in 4-5 years'

New, comments

Adam Silver told Eldridge Recasner that he is surprised that Seattle hasn't already built an arena, that expansion is not on the table, and that it wouldn't be for at least another four to five years.

This is my hat. There are many just like it, but this one is mine.

This is not pleasant to hear for Seattle, but Adam Silver told Husky great and retired NBA player Eldridge Recasner that expansion is not on the table. Recasner documented the exchange in the following tweets.

If we are to take Mr. Silver at his word and if nothing unforeseen happens on the relocation front, then there is no longer a doubt. Whether the victorious arena proposal is in SoDo, Bellevue, or Tukwila, an NHL-first option is now mandatory for success.
