IF KC were to somehow lure the Penguins franchise to KC, as loaded with young talent as it is, IMO the new hockey team would pose huge competition for the Chiefs - that they have not had in a long time.

Another shiny new winter sports team, with promise, in Sprint Center could be the impetus to get Clark Hunt to make a move with Peterson and get new people running the Chiefs. I'm sure there are many fans like me who would much rather put their season ticket $$ into a franchise that gives a rats about its' fans, and has a legitimate chance of winning championships.

Probably won't happen, but I would love to see thousands of fans turn in their "real fan" status with a letter to big fat Carl a letter telling him they have moved on to another team - in town! I'll always love the Chiefs, but with Peterson in charge, they won't get any more of my $$.

If the Penguins come to town, I know I'll forgo buying a Chiefs jersey that year to purchase a Sidney Crosby one.

They would probably win a Stanley Cup before the Chiefs won a Lombardi Trophy again.....

I do think Crosby would probably become the biggest star in town. Maybe Alex Gordon will give him a run for his money. The NFL is the most popular sport, but it does seem like people are fed up with Carl and the Chiefs. They leave you hanging every year, and have superstars (LJ and Gonzo) who seem pissed off half the time... while the Royals look as competent as they have in about 20 years, have a great young core of likeable players (Gordon, Butler, Teahen) on the way up and now there's a legitimate chance the Penguins, who might have the best young group of players in pro sports, with closest thing to the next Wayne Gretzky, could be coming to town... you wouldn't think so... but this really could be a critical offseason for the Chiefs to do this thing right or lose their stranglehold on the city. If the Chiefs win, there's nothing the Royals or anybody else could do to touch them... but they actually need to go do it.

I'd quickly give a rat's ass. Not just to jamb it in Carl's eye, but because NHL hockey - live and in person - is just furious.

This has been a debate I've been having nternally for months. I've had my Chiefs tickets for 16 years now... but I may give them up for NHL tickets. Football is my favorite sport by far, and the Cheifs my favorite team... I just wonder if I'll get more for my money with the NHL.

Man, if a Charger fan said something even anything remotely close to this, imagine all the hate that would be thrown in his direction... ;)

I just have no use for hockey.

If I lived in the KC area, and I had season tickets, I might be inclined to give them up because I'm sick of Carl and his 5 year plan.

Hockey wouldn't be a substitute, however.

Hockey kicks ass live in person. I've been to handful of Blues games back when they had Pronger and they were worth a shit. They were very entertaining.

I'd be all for having Crosby come to town. He's the LeBron James of Hockey.

NO FUGGIN WAY SHOULD THE WNBA EVEN SNIFF THIS TOWN BEFORE AN NBA TEAM IS HERE, not that I want an NBA team here because I think the NBA is garbage.

I don't live in KC, but I'd probably go to as many KC hockey games as I possibly could if I lived here. As long as they didn't interfere with Chiefs football

From what Ive heard theres nothing to say that KC would have a prayer at a NHL team. However there seems to be hope for an NBA team. I heard on ESPN a while back that the Kings might come back to KC if the new arena deal failed in November. I dont know if it passed but getting the Kings back would be justice and fitting. I am however a bigger hockey fan than pro basketball.

You guys bitchin about Chiefs ticket prices... need to check out NHL ticket prices, then consider there are a ton more games. You would have to live, eat, breathe hockey to justify the expense.

I've always thought that an NBA/NHL team might struggle for that reason, tickets aren't cheap, although without looking it up the NHL is probably a little cheaper.

That said, I think the Pens are easily the best shot of any of these pro sports franchises to sell tickets and make it in KC... because they have a killer nucleus of players. Actually, I think they'd probably get KC more pub on ESPN, etc... than the Royals and Chiefs, because of Crosby. He's 19 and already leading the league in scoring... he could be a George Brett-like figure.

CHeck out the prices on Atlanta Thrashers TIckets (http://www.atlantathrashers.com/Tickets.aspx?Levels=2|6|0&CID01=d38f6971-cb97-4fc2-b4d9-76efdcd2866b)

Yeah, that's about what I expected. Indiana Pacers tickets aren't cheap either... the NBA is usually worse. Atlanta is a bigger city though. I think most St. Louis Blues tickets are $25 and $15 in the upper deck... something like $42 for the front rows center ice in the upper deck.

That said, I don't like being in the upper deck for NBA games... a basketball court is not that big, it's not like baseball or football where there's a huge field to look across. A hockey rink is twice as big, so it's a little better I guess.

But yeah, if the team they bring in doesn't win, then I think it could be a problem. But the Pens would sell tickets I think.

To get a team with Crosby and Malkin is akin to when Colorado stole the Nordiques from Quebec with Sakic and Forsberg and Patrick Roy. You'd be fans quick cause you're team is loaded with all-star talent...the envy of every Canadian city...and that's saying alot. Now if the Chiefs could only be so lucky...

$3k gets you some pretty sweet seats AND a hell of a lot more than 8 games. Looks like a steal to me compared to King Carl's Circus Sideshow of Mediocrity.

Sounds like things keep getting better. Lemieux sounds like he's tired of dealing with Pittsburgh, and the door is open for a move. I can't help but believe the AEG folks don't have this deal essentially in the bag for KC and the Sprint Arena.

I hope Carl is sweating bullets in his palatial office at One Arrowhead. I suspect he must be.

A lot of the callers on the local sports radio say that hockey doesn't translate to TV very well. Take Hockey 101 to understand the blue line etc and then go see a game live. You'll be hooked. I have no clue about the hockey rules and I did attend a few Blades games but they say the NHL is much better.

t really can be tought o watch on TV. The reason is there aren't the natural breaks in the game that most of the top sports have right now. For instance... if you are watching a football game, and it's a clunker, you can flip channels between plays, watching 2 games at the same time, catching other shows, etc. But in hockey, the game has breaks, but not like football/baseball/ other big sports. You really are committing to watching it if you are going to do so. Also, inperson, you can follow the flow a lot better. The TV cameras follow the puck, and though this is where most of the action happens, you never get a real idea of the flow, the line changes, the style of play. A parallel to this in football is how the camera only follows the QB, and you really have a trouble figuring out if the defense is running a zone or a man coverage, how the safeties are playing, etc.
