The expansion teams most likely would be Quebec and Markham (Toronto, really).
A second Toronto team would be about as successful as the Islanders in New York. Maple Leafs will always be #1 here.
Anywho, hopefully the expansion will be Seattle and Quebec City, meaning that Phoenix will continue to be a served NHL market. If the worst happens with the Coyotes I'd like to see Houston receive a franchise. I really think they're a market that could be a success.
The idiot lawyer whose job it was to introduce Bettman took a lot longer than Bettman did.
To summarize for those who didn't get to hear it, Bettman talked about 4 minutes. At most. He basically thanked the City Council for their consideration and would respect any decision they will make. He did make a token statement that it is his wish that the team would stay.
Well, Bettman was pretty succinct in his comments, and the clarity, context, and conciseness in which they were delivered made it clear that the NHL will not delay in moving the team if the vote fails.
