Looks good for us!
They also mentioned that per the CBA the players have no say in relocation and expansion. So in theory the NHL doesn't have to give the NHLPA any contingency plan.
That being said though, I can't imagine the Phoenix situation isn't in the back of the NHL's mind. If the Coyotes are soon left with no choice but to relocate, then perhaps this proposal should tell us that Quebec City is not the first option that the NHL is looking at for relocation, but rather somewhere out west.
