Hockey at Sprint Center = I'm in for partial season tickets. Hockey in suburbs, I might go to 1 game per year...

Same is probably said in reverse for people that live in the Suburbs. But I agree, if Hockey or any kind of winter sport was played at Sprint Center, id be in for partial season tickets as well.

Depends upon projected cash flow and operating expenses. If they numbers don't cut it...it won't happen.

Not Sprint Center but UMKC Roos basketball brings the heat at Municipal Auditorium. Season tix insanely cheap, always fun and maybe eventually they put the pieces together and resemble a real D1 program.

If Bluhawk goes through with its arena, couldn't the USHL team play there with the Wolves playing at the Sprint Center? From what I've read, a USHL team would be in a smaller arena, whereas AHL teams play in larger venues.

You would have to have a willing partner to have a place to play the games and I don't think the people at the Sprint Center are all that willing. Plus the team will likely want control of the arena and I don't think that is up for discussion.
