the NHL isn't as interested in Seattle, unless an owner steps forward which has been rumored even when Bellevue collapsed (Levin), MO, AND even then, say it is Levin, then we go through the same protacted review that Chipman/Thomson did when acquiring Atlanta, w/o relinquishing the franchise they built prior to that....
In other words, as others have said, it's an NBA Territory, WHERE that vote 5 days from now is a fait accompli, no matter what KJ and Sacramento are doing, KJ is as equivalent to Howard Schultz and his last-second failed effort to reacquire the Sonics to keep them there in Seattle 4 years ago.
keep in mind, if there's no NBA team in Seattle, the arena for SODO is just that a proposal.
