The Memorandum of Understanding with the city on the arena build can be modified to allow the NHL team there first, without the guarantee of an NBA team. That's according to the guy who wants to build it and is the other party in the MOU, Chris Hansen. It's really not a difficult process if Hansen is open to is and he is publicly so. If the NHL wants Seattle, an arena will get built.
Besides, the feeling out there is that expansion WILL be happening in the NBA and it WILL be to Seattle, likely for 15-16.
