Seattle loves sports but hockey will never fly. NHL would be about #6 or 7 on the sports totem pole in Seattle and there is no way to be profitable in that reality.
The lockout probably plays some sort of factor. It would be interesting to see how hockey is currently ranking on the sports scene in current American NHL markets (both traditional & non-traditional). My guess is there is a lot of "out of sight, out of mind" that's going on.
