Point being, you don't have to be the first, second, or third sports option in a market to be a successful franchise.
Boston, Detroit and Chicago are all part of original six NHL with a history of hockey going back to 1924 for Boston and 1926 for Detroit and Chicago, your going to compare Seattle to them?

Seattle may be like San Jose as an NHL market or it may be more like Kansas City, Cleveland, Florida or even Phoenix.
