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!
One thing is sure. If Coyotes stay one more year, Glendale doesn't seem to be ready to pay the losses for the next year.

So, a move to either Seattle or Quebec will be reflected in a roughly $40M increased price. You know NHL won't flush down $40M and still sell for $170M.
