Everett is only 25 miles from Seattle, and on a weekend night when both teams are home, 14,000 have been in attendance between the two...mind you, that is not every night, but western Washington is not the hockey hotbed that the lower mainland of BC is.

I would think of them as separate "markets" (I hate that term!)...
Everett Events Center = 8500 seats

South Surrey Arena = 1200 seats

Big difference.
