That said, Quebec's arena will most likely be finished before Seattle, assuming the extreme -20 to -30°C cold weather Quebec just had doesn't occur every Winter for 2 entire months each (which would delay construction since they're not allowed to force workers to work under such conditions)
it is not necessary to bring hockey in as Seattle fans and others have consistently pointed out from the minute Hansen got the SODO Arena off and running, DJ, the whole issue around Seattle has been building said arena, after the relocation to OKC, as NFS also pointed out.

Key, also was renovated back in 78-79, forcing the Sonics to Tacoma, for that season
