Based on what I've read, what I think may most likely be is:
Coyotes -> Quebec City
Expansion: Markham, Seattle
Haven't heard anything about the Hurricanes or Lightning. Others may know more.
Buffalo will block Hamilton...its too close to their market draw. A second team in GTA needs to be up more in the toronto area. Buffalo area goes through St catherines and Wellland and draws fans from Hamilton.

If they are going to go through realignment the preference would be to keep Phoenix out west in Seattle.

there wouldnt be teams in both Portland and Seattle.

Personally I think the islanders should just move. the Brooklyn arena was not designed for Hockey so its seat #s would be the lowest in the league.
