Question Will Seattle support an NHL team?

What does everyone think, can Seattle support an NHL team? Will hockey do well here? Would an NHL team have more or less draw than the Storm or the Sounders?

I think an NHL team just because of the higher profile of the league itself will have a bigger draw than the Storm and possibly the Sounders, but after the first couple of seasons attendance will drop to be more along the lines of Sounders numbers (not sure what the Storm's attendance is like). I'm excited at the prospect of an NHL team, but I doubt I will go to too many games because of the cost, and I would rather have my Sounders season tickets and go to every game they play than I would go to 4 or 5 NHL games for the same cost. As long as our NHL team isn't called something stupid like the Totems or the Orcas or Thunderbirds or anything to do with a damn bird, it is the only hockey team other than my beloved Pittsburgh Penguins that I would purchase and wear a jersey for.
