I kinda like the idea of a dispersal draft but don't see it happening.

Many are wondering what’s going to happen to the Phoenix Coyotes now that the sale to former San Jose Sharks president Greg Jamieson has fallen through. Some NHL types believe commissioner Gary Bettman should fold the team this summer and hold a dispersal draft for the Coyotes under contract. Why, you ask, with Quebec City, Kansas City and Seattle just sitting there waiting to get a team? One league executive says the NHL may prefer to get expansion money -- in the $400-million range per-team -- from two of those markets plus from the group that wants to place a second Toronto area squad in Markham. Not sure if it will happen, but it doesn’t sound far-fetched. Just move Phoenix to Quebec City. That makes the most sense
