Have you followed previous Expansion bids? There have generally always been more bids to get teams than there were cities that actually were granted Expansion franchises. Just because there are more than 2 cities that might want teams, doesn't mean that all of those cities will get teams. Hell, take Winnipeg as a recent example... How long was it that Winnipeg tried to get an NHL team? Yes, eventually they got one and through relocation, but it took years to finally happen. The NHL is still going to fight tooth and nail to prevent relocation from happening; but sometimes it does become unavoidable.
