I have wondered this myself on more than one occasion. If you believe the gloom and doom that some people are talking about then it very well could be that the NHL lose some chunk of this season, even if it's only four weeks or so. Bettman and Co. are definitely holding out for something, whether it's QC or Seattle, but I'd have to think they'd prefer to relocate to Seattle and EXPAND to QC because they could make so much more that way. These coming months could be very exciting for one of those cities, especially if expansion becomes a point in the CBA negotiations as a way of the players agreeing to cut back on their revenue percentage (or whatever it's called). Guess we'll see how this plays out!
