Not really, it's more about the owners screwing the pooch for the sake of their own egos. The 1st alignment proposal had any potential move covered:

QUE to East 2 Det/CLB back to Central, SEA stays pat.

Philly/Pitt hated it so the league had to scrap it.

The 2nd one also had this covered by just keeping Detroit in the West

QUE to Conference C or SEA stays pat.

Then the players rejected it and we had the lockout. This led to some how Detroit getting enough influence to get themselves into the East without the vote failing and we have the current train wreck as presented.

This won't prevent a move to Quebec since they'll most likely just vote again and just bump Detroit back to the west.
