You basically shot yourself in the foot there. When Seattle gets an NBA team? Meaning The NHL would be behind the NFL, MLB, NBA, and be competing with MLS for revenue streams. It's not like Seattle is in desperate need of an NHL team because fans are demanding it, the owners of the Stadium would like another tenant to generate profits on the NBA's off nights. Big difference.
Hockey would be the number 1 draw in Hamilton, Quebec city, and a close second in toronto. There is no comparison when it comes to the 4 cities in question.
Can Seattle support and NHL team, of course, but are they going to have the revenue streams other Canadian team would have, no.
