One of those relocated teams is going to Seattle baring any issues that results in the Sodo arena not being built. Seattle is top of the relocation list.
I would have to think that given Seattle's arena deal (NBA tam required to build), Seattle could dip below QUE/SEA if the NHL is using expansion as a CBA negotiating tool.
Expansion creates a big bargaining chip. They'd be trading an item from their CBA wish list for three players 19-25 on their organizational depth chart.
What's the interest level in Montreal (Canadiens ownership, fans, etc) in an NBA team?
