Not really. They can choose to waive the bylaw in any situation. If the BOG decides relocation is in their best interest they will simply vote on it and make it so.

Section 36.1 of the NHL bylaws states that an application for relocation must be submitted by Jan. 1 of the year prior to relocation unless a majority of the member clubs consents to a later filing date.
