The NHL may be coming to Seattle soon. Tacoma should also have a team. We older Tacoma hockey fans remember having the Sabercats in the Tacoma dome. The team did well, but the struggling startup league folded.

Getting an NHL team could be difficult, but why not give it a shot? If that fails, note that each NHL team has two minor league teams. Maybe we could get a minor league team from Seattle having a team.

Are there any Sabercat fans left out there who want hockey back in Tacoma? Let’s go for it!
