But he's spending the 200 million over 35 years so he's way ahead if he makes it up in 10. There's no way you can guarantee Seattle will be a better market than Edmonton. Surrounding population means little otherwise there would still be an NHL team in Atlanta and Pheonix wouldnt be on the verge of moving. Being close to the Canadian border probably helps but it's no guarantee and Seattle is not so close to the Canadian border that it will benefit like Buffalo does with the Leafs.
