Cause to most people, Seattle does not have the pieces together just yet to be considered a contender. No owners, no confirmed date for the building of a new arena, Key arena just wont work short term the NHL as told many people. Just because of that.

Key arena won't work so that is why Chris hansen wants to Put in NHL required items into key arena. Like someone else said the 2 main factors will be what the NHL wants and what NBC sports want.
