It could happen. The Associated Press reports that "Oilers owner Daryl Katz, team president Patrick LaForge and president of hockey operations Kevin Lowe were in Seattle on Monday for meetings about a possible relocation to the city."
It is the same old story. The Edmonton Oilers want a new arena. If Edmonton won't give it to them, along with a zillion concessions, someone else will. In this case the someone else is Seattle. The city is still smarting after losing their NBA team, the Seattle Supersonics, to Oklahoma City, a few years ago. They are looking for both an NHL and NBA team. In fact, and surely this was no coincidence, "The visit by Oilers brass came the same day that the Seattle City Council approved hedge-fund manager Chris Hansen's plan for a $490 million arena that both sides hope will be home to an NBA and NHL team."
They shoulda hadda never traded Wayne Gretzky I tell ya.
