I don't think there is any realistic talk of expansion either. If expansion was on the cards, then it is probably safe to assume that there would be 1 new team in each Conference area; Seattle/Portland/Kansas in the West and Hamilton/Quebec in the East. Going ahead with this now and then having to push
/Detroit back West when expansion came about wouldn't make any sense.
If Phoenix is moved to either Québec or Hamilton/Toronto, Detroit or Columbus would need to be moved back. I don't see Seattle chosen over Québec for Phoenix's relocation, IF there will be no expansion soon.
