The Billion Dollar Buyer spent more than $2 billion to get the Houston Rockets. Tilman Fertitta's purchase of the team was officially announced on Tuesday, and Rockets fans are excited - as they should be - about the new ownership.

Fans of hockey in Houston should be thrilled as well. Fertitta and Rockets CEO Tad Brown addressed the possibility of an NHL team at his introductory press conference.

"We've looked at many NHL teams over the years. It wasn't a matter of not wanting to bring someone in, whether they be a tenant or not, it's just that the deals didn't work," Brown said. "Tilman and I have talked about a number of different things. There's optionality going forward with things that he wants to look at. And we're going to look at everything that makes sense for this building, for his companies, and for the city of Houston."
