There are clearly markets still interested and getting ready to be full-time NHL homes (Seattle and Quebec City) and there might be a rush for refurbishment (Hamilton) and options to entice potential ownership groups (Portland, Houston, and Kansas City), so I think that the demand's there. Adding any more than two teams, however, would probably be a bad business move as it'd effectively seal up all future landing spots just in case a team does need to relocate for whatever reason.
Kansas city not only lacks an ownership group, there is zero interest in the game. Zero. You might as well throw a dart at a map, build an arena there and that market would instantaneously be on the same footing as kc.
