it's simply responsible to have an "alternative plan". The NHL knows what it is and is ready to deploy if its needed, but they will never admit it's needed during a season.

This is a rare slip-up from the league though in publicly admitting that the plan exists.

We eventually learnt that it was the same deal with TNSE. They were the league's "alternative plan" for around two years, and they ended up getting the thrashers, not the coyotes as they expected when the NHL started working seriously with them. What is the alternative plan now? Who knows for sure, but given current arena plans and available markets, it would be wise to speculate it is either Seattle or Quebec.
