Hockey in Seattle is a must. We haven’t had an NHL team here and Seattle fans are very supportive of their teams (the Sonics do not count, the name and uniforms killed them!).
The Mariners survive here no matter what they do, and look at how long the Seahawks have been embraced.
I believe Seattle would be a great market for NHL expansion. I was living in Tampa when Phil Esposito brought hockey there and at first people thought it would be a joke, now they are contenders in a thriving market.
Don’t forget Seattle, it would not be a mistake.
