I think it's been because the league knew they were going to have an even bigger issue in Atlanta, and only one city ready for a team. That ownership group didn't want the Thrashers in the building they own. The Thrashers were going to have nowhere to play. At least the Coyotes have a building to play in. So if you move the Coyotes first, do the Thrashers just fold? Suspend operations until a new city is ready? That looks worse for the league than if they just prop the Coyotes up for years.

Figures, just when the Kings finally get an actual rival in this division, they'll probably be gone before too long. Anaheim has felt forced more than anything, San Jose has usually been on a different level than the Kings, and Dallas doesn't want to be, and shouldn't have been, in the Pacific division.
