Teams on the bubble of relocation IMHO due to poor revenues:
Phoenix
Florida
Tampa
Columbus
Nashville
Anaheim
Dallas ( caveat is that a Houston franchise would help them)
Although I'm sure it's pointless to say it... Tampa isn't going anywhere. Mr. Vinik just bought the team a couple of years ago, has invested $45+ million out of his pocket for arena improvements, moved his corporation to Tampa and moved his family here. There's no way he would agree to the team being relocated.
