Why do NLL teams continue to ignore the elephant in the room? The season is fast approaching and teams are taking the business as usual approach. (Thanks to the Bandits for acknowledging the current labor situation. ) With deadlines fast approaching the league and players better figure it out.

If history is any indication the league and the players will shoot themselves in the foot.

We know what you are thinking. Not another Rochester to Halifax article. Just make it stop already.

“We had been looking for a new home for the Rochester Knighthawks for awhile, but it had to be the right fit. We looked at cities across North America, and none of them compared to Halifax,” Styres told a packed sports bar in Halifax.

Rochester was on borrowed time for years. 

 

“We firmly believe this trend is going to continue. We have more teams coming. I think over the next decade to 12 years, you’re going to see a 30-team league emerge in one of the most dynamics sports in North America.”

Nick has gone all in on expanding the NLL to 30 teams. Looks likes the league is desperate for the expansion money. Currently the 11 team NLL is hard to watch. If we see the day when the NLL reaches 30 teams, the product will be completely unwatchable.

1. The team will keep the name, Rochester Knighthawks, and begin play in the 2019-20 season.

2. The Pegulas will pay an expansion fee, believed to be in the neighborhood of $5 million, about what Curt Styres paid when he bought the franchise in June 2008.

3. Styres will move his franchise to Halifax, Nova Scotia, for the 2019-20 season. The franchise will announce its name at a later date. Styres can retain any players and coaches he desires who are under contract. An expansion draft will be held to help stock the new Knighthawks.

4. The team will play at an improved Blue Cross Arena. The $20 million in improvements include a new scoreboard, new locker rooms and possibly new restaurant called “585.” The Pegulas operate a sports bar/restaurant at Harborcenter in Buffalo called “716.”

5. The Pegulas will continue to own a second NLL team, the Buffalo Bandits.
