SEATTLE (AP) Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer has been hosting hockey games for a quarter-century. Now he wants to do it on a much bigger scale.The filmmaker of ”Flashdance Brayden Schenn Jersey ,” ”Beverly Hills Cop” and ”Top Gun” fame joined his partners – billionaire David Bonderman and Oak View Group Chief Executive Tim Leiweke – on Wednesday in discussing for the first time publicly why they’re trying to bring a professional hockey team to Seattle.One answer, they said, is that the city deserves one: It’s been more than a century since the old Seattle Metropolitans won the Stanley Cup, and a decade since Seattle’s last major men’s professional winter sports franchise, basketball’s SuperSonics, bolted for Oklahoma City. Seattle is the biggest market in the nation without a major winter sports team.But Bruckheimer has also been a big hockey fan since The Great One – Wayne Gretzky – moved from the Edmonton Oilers to the Los Angeles Kings in the early 1990s. Bruckheimer met Gretzky at a party, and Gretzky arranged for him to get season tickets. Having season tickets, Bruckheimer decided to take skating lessons. And having taken skating lessons, he decided to get some friends together to play hockey on Sunday nights. They’ve been playing ever since.”It’s something I get so much joy out of watching and doing,” he said. ”I’m still playing the sport – poorly – but I get out there with a bunch of the guys and do it every week. That’s really nice, to carry something that long in your life.”The group submitted its application for an expansion team with the National Hockey League this month and said Wednesday they hope to hear in June whether it’s accepted. In the meantime, they’re embarking Thursday on a season-ticket-deposit drive meant to demonstrate the city’s interest in a team. They declined to say how many deposits would constitute a successful drive, saying they don’t know how many NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman expects them to sell.The deposits run $500 for season tickets or $1 Authentic Carl Gunnarsson Jersey ,000 for club season tickets, which are center ice, lower-level tickets.They’re also planning to renovate KeyArena, where the Sonics used to play, to the tune of $660 million – including $20 million in acoustic treatment requested by Seattle’s beloved Pearl Jam – and if they’re approved, the league expansion fee will run approximately $650 million, all privately financed. They say if everything goes according to plan they’ll have an NHL team ready for the 2020-21 season.”We’re taking the risk; we’re putting up the money,” Leiweke said. ”There is no risk to the taxpayer.”He added that an environmental review is about half complete and has turned up ”no game-changers.”Bonderman, who graduated from the University of Washington and Harvard Law School before embarking on a career in private equity, would be the principal owner of the team, though he said he wouldn’t be involved in day-to-day operations. As a part-owner of the Boston Celtics, he said he has learned how fun running a sports team could be.”It shows you what you can do with the right kind of team, the right kind of spirit Colton Parayko Jersey , and how much people appreciate having the ability to go see these kind of games,” he said. NEW YORK – The Carolina Hurricanes are finally beginning to establish a home ice advantage. They’ll be the visiting team Saturday night, when the New York Islanders move one home game closer to recovering what used to be one of the most distinct home ice advantages in the NHL.The Islanders will play their penultimate Saturday night game of the season at Barclays Center when they host the Hurricanes in a matchup of surprising Metropolitan Division contenders.Both teams will be playing on short rest after earning wins Saturday night, when the visiting Islanders snapped a two-game losing streak with a 4-3 overtime win over the New Jersey Devils and the host Hurricanes capped a six-game home stand with 4-1 win over the Florida Panthers.Article continues below ...The Hurricanes (11-8-3) won the final three games of the home stand to remain in fourth place in the Metro, one point ahead of the Islanders. A home stand-high crowd of 13,226 turned out to see Carolina, which has the longest postseason drought (nine seasons) in the NHL and entered Friday next-to-last in the league with an average attendance of 12,631.“There was a lot of life in the building tonight,” Hurricanes goalie Curtis McElhinney told reporters after he earned the win by recording 34 saves against the Panthers. “That’s what happens when you start putting wins on the board and you have a little bit of success. People get excited about it.”Fans of the Islanders (11-8-2) are most excited about the team’s imminent return to Long Island’s Nassau Coliseum, where the franchise played until the end of the 2014-15 season.The Islanders, who rank last in the NHL in attendance with an average crowd of 10,648, will play the first of 21 games at Nassau Coliseum on Dec. 1. Just eight of New York’s final 29 home games are scheduled to be played at Barclays Center. The only Saturday night game in that stretch in Brooklyn is set for Feb. 16 http://www.officialblues.com/authentic-adidas-dmitrij-jaskin-jersey , when the Edmonton Oilers visit in the final scheduled game of the season at Barclays Center.Of course, nothing will excite Long Island-based fans more than a contender, and the Islanders are hoping Friday’s win – in which they overcame a game-tying goal by the Devils with 10.2 seconds left in regulation – brought a stop to a November slump. New York lost its previous two games by a combined score of 11-2 and is 3-4-1 in the last eight games.“Obviously, we’d like to get the two points and not give (the Devils) any, but I liked our response all night and I liked our effort and I liked our battle level,” Islanders head coach Barry Trotz told the team’s postgame show. “And that gives us a chance to win every night.”After number one goalies McElhinney and Thomas Greiss drew the starts Friday, backups Scott Darling and Robin Lehner are likely to start in net Saturday.Darling last started and played Nov. 17, when he took the loss after allowing four goals as the Hurricanes fell to the Columbus Blue Jackets, 4-1. Lehner took the loss Wednesday, when he gave up five goals as the Islanders were blanked by the New York Rangers, 5-0.Darling is 3-2-0 in five career appearances against the Islanders. Lehner is 0-4-0 in four games against the Hurricanes.
