Doubt that they'd be able to charge massively more for Quebec City then, say.... Houston, if done at the same time.
Then Seattle could be waiting for quite some time cause who knows when the NHL will expand. Problem with expansion to seattle. New franchise thus could be a few loosing seasons before they come up with a very good team compared to the coyotes which is already a play-off team. Quebec city fans will be more patient than Seattle fans.

Both Seattle and QC deserve teams but with 1 team potentially available at the moment its really hard to say who ends up with Coyotes if that plan to keep where they are at fails.
