Seattle represent a much better argument for the NHL when times comes for TV rights (bigger AMERICAN market).
Not sure about it,
Television audience would be bigger with another team in Quebec than in Seattle, the US TV deal is already signed but a new one in Canada is coming very soon.

Yotes in Seattle would cost the same than an expension in 3 years :
170millions for the yotes + renovating the Key Arena to a "minimum" NHL standard + 3 years deficit in the Key = 300 millions
