Perhaps quebec city acquires a team via relocation you just never know what is going to happen.
With the NBA, there is no competition against Seattle for a team.
So long as the isles have would be local buyers (Peltz or Lafontaine group) and a new local arena( Barclay's), then I would expect Bettman to fight as hard against NYI out of state relocation, as he has for the Coyotes.
