From an NHL point of view, I can see that happening. The reasons why Seattle should have an NHL team have been debated, plus the NHL could make more money on a Quebec City & Toronto II/Southern Ontario expansion teams.
From a 32 team expansion standpoint Seattle or Portland are good options geographically.

From a 4 team division standpoint there is alot of economic ties between Seattle and the Western Canadian cities. Seattle would fit well with Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton. In a 5 team divison set up it works well with Vancouver, LA, Anaheim, and San jose.

Seattle can easily support an NHL team. Its a winter sports market. Seattle along with Denver are two cities that could easily one day host the winter Olympics.
