Comcast-Spectator, The Philadelphia Flyers' parent company led by Ed Snider, appears to be in talks to move an NBA franchise to the Virginia Beach area. As reported by the Virginia-Pilot, an important person from Comcast-Spectator will be presenting plans to build a brand new arena on Tuesday, August 28th.
Will this potential move affect the Flyers? Travis Hughes of SB Nation's Philadelphia Flyers site, Broad Street Hockey, believes so:
Why's this matter to us? Well, this is Comcast-Spectacor's money we're talking about here. We often speak flippantly about Ed Snider's wealth and the endless stockpiles of money that are available to the Flyers in building their team -- salary cap or not. This deal would quite obviously impact those stockpiles in one way or another.
