I just don't see how you can compare jr league hockey that has 17-19 year olds to a league that has some of the best hockey talent in the world.
How many do they get to Huskie football games?

The WHL is where NHL players are produced, just like the NCAA is for football. If they get 60,000 to Husky football games and 10,000 to Husky baskeball games while getting 4,000 for Thunderbirds hockey, it is very clear where the loyalties lie.

Hockey will get killed in Seattle.
