Lastly, There has been TOO much talk of seattle, which leads me to believe that this entire relocation to seattle will never happen...

Lastly, Mr Bettman does NOT want an NHL team playing in Key Arena..
NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly was quoted by La Presse of Canada in late January (*2012) as saying "Seattle, like Quebec, amphitheatres (have) to be built. Existing infrastructure - the Coliseum and the Key Arena, which served as home to the SuperSonics basketball club before being relocated to Oklahoma City, could serve as temporary solutions.
* emphasis mine

Mr. Bettman doesn't want to be in Key Arena as a matter of preference? Perhaps...
