Fun Fact: The Seattle Metropolitans were the first non-Canadian team to win the Stanley Cup....way back in 1917

Yeah, they've been working on this for a long time.  At least 3-4 years.  We had an NHL team when I was a kid, the Seattle Totems.  But they didn't last too long after we moved here.  The Seattle Thunderbirds have been doing it for a long time.  A young men's team, they were known for fights and such back in the '80's trying to prove their mettle for getting into the NHL.  They are still around but not as violent. 

Part of the effort is to attract NHL and NBA.  The NBA has not been to receptive, but perhaps the NHL will work out.

No, there are other parties involved with this I think.  Haven't heard anything about Paul Allen's involvement.

Apparently a Seahawk was auditioning for the NHL this weekend.

Good! Now we (OKC) can steal that one too!
