It certainly is more vibrant as a business and high tech market than anything outside of California (which has three NHL teams).

The arena initiative puts Seattle at the top of my list as a potential new market.
They dont even have a confirmation for the new arena just yet, and the NHl told many insiders that they will never play a game at Key arena. Once thos two issues are settle thne Seattle will have a chance.
