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.
And it makes sense to go somewhere out west. The league will be able to get a bigger franchise fee out of a Canadian market.
