Since he bought the Rockets seven years ago, Tilman Fertitta hadn't said too much publicly about the NHL. Until this week. | Tilman Fertitta: Talks to bring NHL team to Houston have intensified

I'd imagine Tilman would explore just giving them the Aeros name but if it's a brand new name it would likely fit in the space category like the Astros and Rockets.


The Texans is a terrible name.

I hope something comes of this, this time. I would be stoked to have an NHL team here.

He needs to write a blank check (and some Rainforest Cafe gift cards) to Carolina for the rights to Houston Hurricanes.

Huh?

Thought it was pretty widely known he wanted an NHL team at the Toyota center and he has recently been pursuing the Cayotes

Been hearing that since he bought the Rockets.

This would excite the people on Nextdoor, who see coyotes everywhere on neighborhood jogging trails.

Few years back timbergrove Nextdoor was in a panic cause a bunch of white women watched too many Netflix docs and thought the dead cats in the hood meant someone’s kid was a future serial killer

Turned out to be the coyotes killing all the cats

No way there’s too many teams as it is the talent pool is diluted enough

I support however many teams west of Nashville it takes to get the Preds into the eastern conference.

Been told by a friend who works with Preds, that Houston is one of favs to get a team. They have gone from possible to top8, to one of favs. They love what the Owner and City would bring, and have always been happy with Aeros and their fans. Atlanta continues to move up, but NHL wants to make sure Arena is in best place possible, and best access to fans. NHL believes arena placement is why the flames and thrashers failed.

Take it with a grain of salt, but he's usually good on NHL shite, when he texts me stuff.

Best I've seen in my hood was some lady who posted repeatedly that someone - for the last 10 years she'd lived here - had been killing possums at night and depositing them in the middle of a majorish cut-thru street to be found in the mornings.

She finally quit nextdoor after some dude started a couple of hilarious parody threads.

Is he willing to pour a bunch of upgrades into the Rockets arena? Someone is going to have to if Houston gets a team.
