I like it. It strengthens the NHL's West Coast presence which has just been getting better and better. It provides a great (and closer rival) for Vancouver. Seattle is a great sports city and they will do well with an NHL team. It won't be like Phoenix, they will slowly build a loyal and strong hockey fan base.

Don't worry about Quebec City. They will pay the big bucks to the NHL and get an expansion franchise. That market can sustain building a team up from nothing. It's better to put an established team in a new market so they can see a more successful product from the start.

I think Seattle will be a very solid NHL city.
