And you and I are in agreement there. I just think that they will submit a bid the next time relocation comes up, that's it. They'll get shot down by the NHL when it comes for them to determine finalist cities to consider.

As I said before, Quebec City, Seattle, and Houston is my hunch, and in that order, for the pecking order of getting a team through expansion (with QC being the only ready right now for a relocation). There are plenty of other variables, like if KC got an ownership group together or MLSE suddenly dropped their opposition to another team in Southern Ontario or if Allen decided that he wants the NHL in Portland, but I'd say that those are stretches at this point in time and therefore would rank those markets as second tier in terms of likelihood in getting a team.
