Quebec City and Seattle are the only realistic destinations right now, IMO.

Markham has a population that barely cracks 300K, so how realistic is that for a team? They're 20 miles from Toronto, so not sure where they'd build a new fan base around. Hamilton would be more realistic, but I even think that would be a mistake.

Even Winnipeg has 730K. I don't see that working at all. Not sure KC + Overland Park are big enough for a successful hockey franchise, with how popular the Thunder are there. You also have the Royal and Chiefs, obviously. KC/OP big enough to keep 4 professional sports? My guess would be no, and that they're better suited for a minor league team.
