If expansion happens then there will be a new realignment which will happen with the expansion happens. It makes better sense right now to move coyotes to Seattle even better for travel times. Isn't that the whole point of this 4 division realignment was to reduce travel times?
Given WA, and the PNW in general though, an EIS is no slam-dunk approval by any means!

I agree that Seattle is the most 'logical' destination for an NHL team re: the realignment. But Quebec fits the criteria, mentioned when Winnipeg got Jets 2.0 of the NHL righting old wrongs and coming home again. So does KC. So does Cleveland. Seattle never had an NHL team per se, just a Western league team back in the 1920s when the Western league was an equal foe to the NHL...
