i have no doubt that seattle will make a fine home to an nhl team one day. but the potential owners of the nba team are out and proud. if the hockey market is also such a slam dunk, why are investors not similarly leading the public charge right now?
i can only speculate that those who actually have the money to purchase and operate an nhl team in seattle are not as convinced that it is a slam dunk. the city also seems to think its not a slam dunk either, else it would not be offering up a free $80M incentive.
The County is providing the 80m if Seattle gets a NHL team not city. The focus is getting the Sonics back THEN getting a NHL team.
Nothing will happen regards to getting a NHL franchise until its a guarantee that the ARENA will get built. NHL clearly says new arena is needed no discussions regarding getting a NHL franchise will continue until that building is taking care of.
