So it sounds like Seattle is trying to get the Phoenix Coyotes in Seattle. In my mind Phoenix was never a good spot for an NHL team, but does Seattle have a good hockey base there? Thoughts?

I think is would do well. They seem to really get into the other teams in the town. This could also be a push to show the NBA that "We have every other major sports team here, why not NBA." I think the sonics never pushed for fans, until it was to late. If they get into Soccer that much, they will love Hockey.

I could see it. Seattle, Salt Lake, and Milwuakee are the only US cities left that I could see hockey working in.

I would put the front runners as Seattle, Quebec, or another team in Toronto.

Seattle I believe would work. The Everett Silvertips get pretty decent attendance for a semi-pro team (around 6k a game or something). You see plenty of Canuck fans around here that would probably switch to a Seattle team I'd imagine.
