So, if the NHL were to move the Coyotes to QC, how would they go about putting the Genie back in the bottle in one of Detroit or Columbus?

Doesn't the NHL have enough old problems without making up new problems too?

The only logical conclusion I can draw is that the Coyotes to QC is not nearly as likely nor imminent as I thought it had been.

Not seeing a lot of other options either. I really am completely lost and don't know what to think here.
It's simple: the decision on realingment had nothing to do with the decision on relocation!

These are two different problems.
