Seattle NHL Team?

This is kind of off topic, but not really because a possible Seattle team would likely be in the Pacific Division.

SEATTLE TIMES LINK

I think it is strange that after all of these years, Seattle has never been seriously considered as an NHL city until fairly recently. A team up there would create an instant rivalry with Vancouver and would be a fun team to face for the California teams as well. The big question, is what city would get team #32. With only 14 teams in the Western Conference, it makes sense to add Seattle, but the other likely expansion target is Quebec City which would be in the Eastern Conference. Would Bettman & Co. consider snubbing Quebec and award a franchise to a city like Las Vegas, Kansas City, or Houston? Or will they award an expansion team to Quebec anyway and just move Columbus or Detroit back to the west? It looks like it'll be an interesting couple of years in the NHL...
