A team that is hardly mentioned is Phoenix, but there is a real possibility that the Coyotes will be moved very soon. The NHL has no lease agreement with Phoenix for the coming season. Glendale has refused to budge from an Arena Management Fee that is too low for the prospective buyers (RSE) to agree to. Negotiations seem to be going nowhere. (For more details, see the "Business of Hockey" forum).
I think the only practical destination at this point would be Quebec City.
I'm sure the new owners of the Quebec team would be willing to spend money to upgrade quickly. They would also presumably be looking for francophone players. If Mike Smith refuses to go to Quebec, Luongo could be a fit. The initial face of the new Nordiques franchise, fluent in French?
