I can see at minimum, nine "no" votes for a relocation to QC. Don't forget that a two-thirds majority (20 out of 30) is needed to approve any relocation. With the likes of Snider, Ilitch, Wirtz, and Mario being alienated by this potential alignment, moving the Coyotes east to QC within the six division format is DOA.
And if the Coyotes to Quebec City is taken off the table? And expansion isn't to happen for a few years.

This Jamison group isn't buying the Coyotes to move them to Quebec City; I don't think he has any associations with QC.
