Because they are already building a new arena in Markham (a suburb of Toronto). They were also rumored/negotiating to get Phoenix as the team to relocate there.
Honestly, I'm not worried about relocation anyway because I would bet that Seattle gets a team first so Phoenix, if they had to move, would go there not disrupting the newly proposed alignment anyway. Though KC already has a NHL-caliber arena too so they could be a target and would remain in the west.
If they ever do another expansion, I definitely could see Quebec & Toronto as the 1st two that get teams. Quebec is also building a new arena so they would make sense and the NHL knows they would have the fan support there. Obviously if they do expand, that would be when they would have to do another re-alignment.
