Blues sold -- Good news for StL. Bad for KC?

It's official.
Dave Checketts will own the St. Louis Blues.

Blues sold

This is good news for St. Louis, but potentially bad news for Kansas City. Dave Matlin of the MatlinPatterson investment group will now turn his attention to purchasing the Pittsburgh Penguins from Mario Lemeiux. If so, the rumor is that Matlin wants to move the Penguins to Las Vegas.

Perhaps AEG can talk Matlin into looking at the Sprint Center.

Or, perhaps the AHL is the best we can do...
