The Tacoma Dome is frankly the better venue, but, as was noted yesterday in the previously mentioned radio interview that KJR did with Elliotte Friedman, they would need to get a new ice plant as they currently do not have one. Also, and I think this has been discussed here before, the MOU requires the NHL team to play at the Key.
Speaking of that KJR interview w/Friedman, it happened on Ian Furness' show and can be heard via podcast on their show page:
At left, there should be a box with "Audio from the Show" and there, look for Elliotte Friedman 1-31. Above it is an interview clip they did with Chris Daniels as well if you want to listen to that.
Furness, for the non-Seattle guys on the board who may have satellite, is also ROOT Sports' main WHL announcer. Won't be doing tonight's game (that's a Canadian simulcast game tonight) but will be likely calling the game on March 8 when Everett is at Spokane. Root only has six games this year, and three of them are simulcasts from Shaw up in western Canada, including tonight's and next week. Then they don't have another game until that March 8 one.
