So barring a REAL white knight, I have a couple suspicions.

(1) I've been wondering if the realignment negotiations with NHLPA factor into a possible- I've got to say probable- move of this franchise. It seems like all the negotiating being done in Detroit and Columbus can't or shouldn't suddenly be reversed.

(2) The league wants a couple more years of due process to shake every possible last theoretical white knight out of the cacti.

Prior to this weekend's news, my line was "if they move now, it's Quebec; if they wait a couple years, it's Seattle." I've become very tempted to think that the alignment under discussion practically dictates an in-West move.

The next question: will Quebec and Markham be serviced by expansion, or are there other moves coming?
