It's tough to say who will move first the Yotes or the Isles but I honestly would rather see it go to a Canadian team rather than another American one. If it was up to Bettman he would try to put a NHL team in Wyoming.
Depending on the TV range, a team in Wyoming actually might do OK.
If they can get the Dakota's, Idaho and Montana they'd have very little competition for a fan base in the North-Western USA(only other options are Canadian team's(Oilers, Flames, Nucks), the Av's and the Wild). It's probably a better market to explore than KC or Seattle despite the population difference.
