But it'd just be a slap to the face to ignore the new, giant temple of hockey in Québec and give a team to two risky markets. With one of them over-saturated with sports and no arena.
I wouldn't be calling Seattle's a risky market as if it wasn't the issue of the arena we would have a team right now. Seattle isn't over-saturated.
What's risky is NHL giving a team to play in key arena on the hopes of a new one being built.
