The only places this is a legitimate concern are struggling (non-traditional) markets. Good. **** 'em. Let the entire world see how apathetic the fans are in a place like Phoenix, so there's no need to debate whether they should be relocated or not.

I'm actually hoping some of these teams get even worse attendance after the lockout so we can finally be rid of them once and for all.
Some of those teams like Columbus have these things called leases that, if broken, would cost the League (all teams) a fortune.
Relocation is possible when a lease has run out (Islanders) or when the owners of the arena throw the team out (Atlanta).

You might want to learn about the potential consequences of your scenario before wishing it upon others.
