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.
Quebec is the obvious frontrunner. The NHL wont go into Seattle at the same tine has the NBA cause it would get overshadowed badly by the arrival of the NBA. Bad way to start for a new franchise. Levin the potential new owner for the Seattle just said in an article he would prefer an expansion team.
