Worst case scenario is that the team goes to the highest bidder, with possible cutsies for people wanting to keep it local.

Right now the league can afford to charge an inflated price for the team since someone else is covering most of the losses. The second COG stops writing cheques, the league will just take what they can get and wash their hands of the situation.

Quebec isn't the firegone conclusion that some people make it out to be until there're at least some shovels in the ground for the new stadium. The league might let them play out of Le Colisée for a few seasons, but if they move to Quebec and the new barn doiesn't get built, all they've done is moved the turd to another pocket.
