I think the design looks great. Can't wait until this starts, hopefully Hansen works a deal with Sacremento soon and the NHL is right on their heels. Seattle should have an NHL team, IMO. Coming right out of this lockout (1-2 years) hopefully SEA secures a team (PHO or expansion).
I lived in Seattle North for about a year or so and still have family in the area. When I stayed there I went down to Tacoma to see the Kings play the Penguins in an exhibition game. The arena in Tacoma is an arm pit (was? I haven't been back) but the place was packed with hockey hungry fans.
The area supports several jr teams and levels and is a hockey hotbed (Seattle) and I believe the fans would turn out to support an NHL team and that the NHL Would be silly nog go try and put a team there.
