Yeah. The owner, Daryl Katz said that if they can't come up with a solution to a new arena, that he'd relocate the team to Seattle.

That means there wouldn't be any Battles of Alberta to look forward to anymore D:

Just, like, renew the lease to the Rexall Center or something ffs.
The only problem with Rexall Place is that the building is near 40 years old, and it wouldn't be worth the $75 million to renovate just to keep it running for another 6 or 7 years. Also, I think the whole moving the team to Seattle was just used as a bluff, as the KeyArena is smaller, and in even worse shape than Rexall.

If there absolutely has to be a relocation, I would think that Quebec City or the Hamilton areas would be better options than Seattle, simply because the NHL knows it would get much more revenue moving the team there (just like Atlanta relocating to Winnipeg).
