Bellevue using Kiro makes sense since KIRO is a CBS affiliate and not NBC. The leading city, Seattle, should have KING on their side since KING, though Belo owned, is an NBC (Comcast) affiliate. NBC/Comcast stands to gain the most from this Seattle deal going through, since getting an NHL team would mean big league Seattle relevant content for Comcast SportsNet NorthWest. And thus, Comcast will see to it ($$$) that the NHL accepts Seattle's KeyArena as the temporary home, IMO.
