That's if the NHL actually thinks it has to massage the fan base. That might be a first.
It's possible the logic becomes Quebec getting the relocation because the TV partners will have more say on expansion than they do relocation. THAT assumes NBC has more power than any given Canadian network, and that's obviously debatable.
You think portland would want to pay a expansion fee that high? NHL wants seattle. Its seattle and quebec with portland via relocation.
