NHL News: Gretzky Part of Group Trying to Get An NHL Team In Seattle?

According to a report from the New York Post, NHL legend Wayne Gretzky is part of a potential ownership group looking to get an NHL team in Seattle.

The report says that Gretzky's group is one of 3 groups attempting to get a team in the area, however they need an arena to play in first and the plans on that aren't very clear right now.  It is unclear if the plan would be for expansion which wouldn't be wise as Gary Bettman has said he doesn't think the league is ready for an expansion, or if the group planned to buy a team and then move them to that region.

Gretzkys agent later denied the report but seemed to admit that Gretzky had been contacted for not only the Seattle bid but other ownership opportunities across the four major sports.
