Problem is that if they expand, they'd almost assuredly expand by two, and no other Canadian markets are really likely to land a team (Hamilton will be opposed enough by Buffalo and Toronto that they sway enough votes in the BoG and there's no sufficient arena elsewhere in the GTA after the Markham deal seemingly fell apart). Doubt that they'd be able to charge massively more for Quebec City then, say.... Houston, if done at the same time.
