To be fair, Seattle arguably has better potential than Columbus due mainly to the larger corporate sector. On the other hand, Columbus only has the NHL and Seattle would have all 4 "major sports" if the NBA returned also.

Seattle would also benefit a little by its proximity to Canada. Canadians would show up for games.

However, I agree with you. The NHL is not big in Seattle at all. To give you one example, I know the local NBC affiliate has in the past not shown NHL games if there was something more popular they could televise. Proximity to Canada and the existence of a few WHL teams in the area does not make Seattle a hockey city.
