I mean... our building has almost finished being built. While we are still speaking of theoretical arenas in Las Vegas and Seattle (and of a very, very hypothetical one in Seattle).
I truly believe that once expansion will be given the go ahead (and that could be in a few years), Québec will be part of the ''first batch''.
Quebec, if anything, would be a "relo savior" for a franchise in trouble, similar to how Atlanta went to Winnipeg. I can't see the NHL actively targeting a small, hockey-saturated market for an expansion team, but YMMV.
