They aren't moving and I doubt very much that the other NHL owners want to pool together money to buy out not only the owner but the local governments that would come after them.
Just want to point out the Islanders are moving at the start of the 2015-16 season. That said you are correct on the lease thing as they won't be moving until the current lease in Nassau county expires.
