It depends on whether the NHL is trying to use contraction, expansion, and/or relocation in it's labor negotiations. There is going to need to be some negotiation on whether or not expansion/relo fees are counted toward HRR, etc. The NHL is going to have to decide whether it's worth it to wait until HRR drops for players, etc. And the lockout will certainly have to be over before any official announcement is made about the relocation or contraction of the Phoenix Coyotes. When will this lock-out end? I'm guessing ten or eleven months from now.
