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.
Your speculation is duly noted. As to why they are not 'out and proud' (which hardly characterizes Hansen by the way) is that maybe they don't want to put the cart before the horse. Seems that would be a prudent business tactic. All in due time.
