That said, there is a chance the NHL could relocate to Seattle for next season and the team would play in the Key for 2-3 years until the new arena is built. But we shall see what happens in a few weeks. I think the Kings are bound for Seattle; if that does indeed happen, then who knows what will happen with regard to the NHL. Interesting days ahead!
That's what I said. I was providing an analysis of Heyoooo's argument and offering an alternative, more accurate analysis, one that happens to be consistent with yours.
"If the NHL is in Seattle, then the NBA is [already] in Seattle."
That's a bit different from what he proposed. The former statement can not be true if the latter is false. If the former is true, then the latter must also be true. The former being true guarantees the latter being true via the rule of inference known as "modus ponens." The same could not be said about Heyoooo's argument. Formal logic can be challenging!
