Now that the NHL day s expanding to Seattle, are they right or no?

The NHL is expanding to Seattle, starting in 2021. An ownership group agreed to pay a $650 million expansion fee, which will go to 30 of the current teams. The Vegas Golden Knights, who played its first season last year, paid a $500 million expansion fee The Seattle team, which has yet to have a name, will be in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference. The Arizona Coyotes will move to the Central Division that season. The NHL’s most recent new team, the Golden Knights in Las Vegas, had a nearly perfect season in its first year, with a run to the Stanley Cup Finals. While Vegas has been a hit, some other NHL expansion and relocating teams have struggled, with the Florida Panthers and the Coyotes ranking near the bottom of the league in attendance.

You're an NHL owner. Seattle wants to give you a 1/30th share of $650 million expansion fee to join the league (Vegas does not get any money, but they're exempt from the Expansion Draft) which comes out to $21.67 million (US). Are you going to vote to take their money or not? Seattle is the 13th largest US TV market (the only top 15 markets where the NHL does not have a presence is Houston and Atlanta). Seattle as a city has a median family income of just over $121K which is well above the national average.
