    Quite easily I would think, large population, much cheaper to see a Birds game and WHL hockey is good stuff

    No. As soon as the NHL team comes the Tbirds will suddenly implode and completely disintegrate from existence.

  • No reason they can't. Seattle is a large market. Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver all have WHL teams along with their NHL franchises. There are several OHL teams in the Toronto area along with an AHL team in addition to the NHL Maple Leafs. The Thunderbirds play in a suburb.

    Every city in the WHL area that has a NHL team also has a WHL team.  Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg.  Although, those are all Canadian cities, but  if Seattle is a true NHL hockey city it will work.

    The Thunderbirds are a junior league hockey team. Here in Ottawa, we got both a junior team and an NHL team. The price of tickets for the junior team are much more affordable than the NHL team tickets. So yes, it's easy for them to coexist. Sometimes they may even become affiliated, where the junior team provides players for the professional team.

    Probably, a lot of hockey cities have both an NHL team and a junior team.  Can Seattle do it?  Maybe.  It's hard to know just how much people like hockey there.  Vancouver is hockey crazy and can easily do it but then again Seattle is not part of Canada (well not officially).
