I know they won a cup, but it wasn't 1915. That was our year.

King County Council approves the new Seattle Arena proposal. Will invest $80 million if both NBA/NHL come. Now up to Seattle City Council
Please make this happen!

Came here to post your quote.

Man just small uneducated on the subject discussion with my buddies and family, we all agree a team in Seattle area would be amazing.
Personally don't ever go to America, but a professional hockey team being there, I'd for sure make a point of going. Especially considering how expensive home games in Vancouver can be.

I'd love to see more of Crosby since he's my favorite player.

Durant should be lighting it up in Seattle.
Not creating Thunder with OKC.

That would be great for us living in Victoria as the clipper passenger ferry runs from downtown Vic to the Seattle waterfront which would be close to the new arena.It would be easier than than taking BC Ferries to Tswassen and bussing in although flying in would still be way quicker than either.


In other big new regarding Seattle:

better market them some and cant be that bad with potential Canadians rival not to far way. Be good home and home trip.

Also habs, leaf, oiler and Flame fans that exist in the province get chance to see more of there team play. Not really selling point to land franchise but one would think quarter of their home games will help sell out from rivals.
