EXPANSION NOW AN OPTION? Seattle-based KJR-FM host Mitch Levy wrote, "I'm hearing that the NHL Commish is encouraging the board of governors to make an expansion team available to Seattle" (TWITTER.com, 7/30). CBSSPORTS.com's Brian Stubits noted Levy "went on to say" that a franchise would cost $275M to acquire and "if that became a reality, it would begin operations" in '14-15. But that would "all be based on an ownership group coming forward and the plans for a new arena continuing down the path of becoming reality." KeyArena "likely would serve as the home of a team until an arena came to be" (CBSSPORTS.com, 7/31).
