I am still rather skeptical the NHL has any interest in relocation to Quebec. Among the many problems was an inability to market due to the language barrier, something that has only become a greater obstacle to a certain extent. After the whining and complaining mounted towards the Canadiens just for having an Anglophone coach. It seems far too much of a headache to be worthwhile, especially with Hamilton an equally viable option and half the issues.

Nonetheless, if expansion is the future desire. New American markets are more probable given the NHL's preference in growing the game outside the Canadian boarder. Seattle is the obvious choice. Portland also appears to have a growing hockey population and would certainly help balance travel.
