    It's going to be an expansion, because the NHL sucks.

    Sucks at what, making money? Expansion is a $650M price tag. Relocation isn't even a third of that.

    I agree. But I'm fine with this being another windfall. It only benefits the rest of the league by increasing HRR which should lead to an increased cap. Fix the Yotes issue with relocation. Houston is perfect.

    Seattle 'shell-shocked' at ticket drive response

    Seattle, which began a season ticket drive Thursday in its effort to become an NHL expansion team, received 10,000 deposits in 12 minutes and about 25,000 in total.

    Great city, amazing sports fan base. And plenty of corporate potential.

    I go there for work. Would make it suck less from a sports perspective (other than football / baseball)

    There is massive corporate sponsorship potential in that area, more so than most NHL City’s.
    Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks, Costco, and another 1/2 dozen Fortune 500 companies.
