I'm a huge supporter of Seattle getting an NHL team, but it would still take some time to build that sucker up for the long-term in terms of fan support, even if they were given a relocated team that is already halfway decent. Stern & Co. have to know that...I should think this wouldn't be much of a concern to them, but maybe I'm wrong.
I don't know about that. And of course, I truly don't know because I don't live there. But I think they'd be fairly equal, with the NBA slightly ahead, though the NHL could take away that slight advantage.
