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.
It's funny that the two of us did the exact same thing and got drastically different results. What's even more funny is that I was there to go to basketball events and had most of my conversations at basketball games. Where you'd expect Pro-Sonics, anti-hockey.

It seems that Sports fans = sports fans (NBA, NHL, you name it)
General Public = wider array of opinions (less NHL popularity).
