I'd argue that nothing can ensure the longterm health of those markets. Nothing the players OR owners can propose can make non-hockey markets into hockey markets, so honestly I don't believe their concerns should be major factors in deciding whose proposal gets the most play in these negotiations.
If I ran the league, I'd contract both those markets and put a team back into Quebec (and maybe into Seattle).
