Also I assume the players/coaches of Peoria still belong to the Blues, correct?
The players/staff all still belong to the same NHL franchise. So all the Wolves players would move to Peoria and vise versa, if they do an official switch.
Might be some lag though as they sort out all the questions regarding Vancouver moving into the Heat's city and the following changes that would need to happen to sort everything out.
