I'm not ready to move the Islanders yet, although that has more to do with an arena than the fan base.
Phoenix's problems stem from how they were moved there to begin with. People think it's insane than they're there, or still there. Look at how they were moved there. Bettman shows up one day and decides that's where he wants the Jets to go to, without an arena. The Suns moved into their current arena only 3 or 4 years before the Coyotes. You'd think they'd make a configuration for hockey, because presumably the wheels would be in motion longer than that.
Florida I don't take as much issue with, because Miami is a huge pop-culture hub now, and the NHL moved in roughly the same time the Heat and Marlins. They roughly have the same issues the Coyotes did, because Pat Riley didn't want to share an arena with them.
