If there absolutely has to be a relocation, I would think that Quebec City or the Hamilton areas would be better options than Seattle, simply because the NHL knows it would get much more revenue moving the team there (just like Atlanta relocating to Winnipeg).
It would be nice to have the new arena, but the price tag is just way too much. He's a billionaire - he should pitch in a large amount of the money. I'm pretty sure he can make it all back.
