Preseason NHL hockey in the Seattle area

Peter Mueller returns to Everett for NHL exhibition

This is pretty typical.

Tonight, the NHL visits the Greater Seattle Area for the first time in years, and this is all the Seattle Times - the now lone print newspaper in the city - has online about it. The Tampa Bay Lightning are playing a preseason game against the Phoenix Coyotes in Everett, Washington, in case you missed it. It's only because of the WHL teams in the area (the Seattle Thunderbirds and the Everett Silvertips) that a few people know anything about the sport at all.

Thank you, Vancouver Canucks, for not even bothering to try to grow the game in the US.

At least the local newspaper, the Everett Herald, has something that sounds a bit more knowledgeable about tonight's preseason game.
