The only city the team can move to is Quebec. Seattle has an owner, but no arena. KC has an arena but no owner. Quebec City has both.

And this isn't an April Fools joke either.
Given the new divisions I can't see a western team moving to the east. And given the NHL's knowledge of Canadian thirst for teams, I can't see an American team relocating to Canada again. They'd be leaving too much money in expansion fees on the table

I still think Phoenix moves to Seattle and plays in Key arena for a couple of years until the new building is done.

QC and Hamilton will get their teams via expansion.
