Tilman Fertitta, the guy who recently purchased the Houston Rockets NBA team, has now been mentioned as a potential owner if the NHL decides to put a team there, either by expansion or relocating an existing franchise.

I wouldn't mind an NHL franchise in Houston. But I was hoping he would try to bring back the WNBA Comets instead! Just sayin'...

the NHL needs another western team to balance out the league(16 each). Carolina is likely moving to Quebec. Seattle was rumored to get this expansion team is a new arena gets built.

Seattle can't get its act together, so Houston will likely get its team. Not too sure about Carolina moving again....of you believe the owner who has gone on record saying he has zero desire to move the Hurricanes. We'll see though.

He needs to know there is a fan base for the Comets in order to convince him to spend the $10 million to reactivate them. Hit up his twitter feed with #RelaunchTheComets

Not happening. Bettman is not moving a southern team to Canada.
