Conspiracy theory here, just meant for some thought, but Burkle seems to be a well-respected owner amongst the BOG and by Gary Bettman, at least as indicated by his participation in CBA negotiations. Could his involvement in keeping the Kings in Sacramento be any indication of the NHL's (or BOG's) confidence or lack there of in the Seattle market? It seems that if Bettman wanted a team in Seattle, he might try to convince Burkle to stay out of it so that the Kings move, the arena is built, so on and so forth.
