Is there anywhere actually ready to take this team? Quebec City is not ready no matter what people say, and I don't know where Kansas and Seattle are in their plans.
If in your estimation Quebec City isn't ready, then nobody is. Cause they are by far the msot ready. A suitable temporay arena in place, a new arena under construction and a willing owner.

KC has an arena but no owner and unknown willingness by the league to go back there. Its not like St. Louis is a rousing success.

Seattle has arguably a suitable temp arena (far worse than the colisee in QC) but the new arena is still going through the stages of getting approved.

The NHL has a history of willingness to play in less than ideal temp arenas as long as there is a new one in the works
