    Dont think Atlanta will ever get a team after two franchises failed. Quebec is my best guess for the yotes.

    Seattle deserves a chance at hockey.

  3. Kevin August 15, 2013 at 12:14 pm

    Seattle. If not possible, then Quebec City. Seattle has tons of huge corporations that are willing to fund the team like Starbucks and Microsoft. It is much bigger market than Quebec City.

    Vegas, Then I could still go to some of thier games, A city that had a team should be the last on the list

  5. LucasP August 15, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    Quebec would likely be the best fit for movement since the fans and business corporations have demanded it.

    Iqaluit… the true north

  7. pandabear23 August 15, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    Seattle, they are building an arena suitable for NHL/NBA

  8. Yvon Ducharme August 15, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    Quebec City. They deserve it the most. Seattle already has Vancouver so I think they’re set as far as that goes. What would the point of having two teams right next to each other be? I mean, really? Quebec City has the legacy and the undoubted fan base and thus they should get the team. Nuff said.

  9. Bman L August 15, 2013 at 3:04 pm

    Seattle or Quebec City because both are good hockey cities and deserve a franchise there.

  10. Oilers83 August 15, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    Qubec their arena will be finished before seattles

  11. Lexie August 15, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    If they moved to Las Vegas, they’d be shooting themselves in the foot. Still a hockey team in the desert with minimal fanbase, the Las Vegas Gamblers?

    The Quebec City Nordiques seems to be what everyone is looking at, but staying in America would be cool. Kansas City would be KC and SL, and if they moved to Seattle, it would be close quarters with Vancouver.

    If they moved to Hamilton, I think that would be really cool, they would definitely fare well there. But overall, I think it will be Quebec City, bringing back the Nordiques

    The only cities that would be profitable right off the bat are Quebec City and Hamilton.

    Seattle doesn’t have an arena suitable for an NHL team (yet) nor does it have a large market. A hockey market can be built, but they first need an arena.

    I think Kansas City would do about as well as Atlanta, which is to say not well at all. It would also compete with St. Louis, and St. Louis has a hard time as it is keeping itself in the black.

    Las Vegas doesn’t have an arena, it’s in the middle of a desert, there’s no hockey market whatsoever nor would there be that many fans because Las Vegas doesn’t even have a large population.

    Las Vegas is an awful idea and I wish people would stop suggesting it.

  13. Andy August 15, 2013 at 6:21 pm

    Birmingham, Alabama. Has an arena, only 2 hours away from ATL so they could get the Atlanta fans to come plus people from Huntsville, Montgomery, and mobile among others

  14. AJ August 15, 2013 at 6:39 pm

    Quebec City, if not, Seattle.

  15. Stamkos 60 August 15, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    Quebec City.

    Seattle? if there are hockey fans there they are already Canucks fans.

    Vegas? Yea great idea lets move a team from one desert in Phoenix to another desert a short drive away. Genius.

    Kansas City? Quebec City trumps them in every category.

    Hamilton? Too close to Buffalo and Toronto.

    Winner : Quebec City.

    having a team in vegas would be awesome, I go there for….. erm….. business…… regularly, and it would be cool to see a team there. I have absolute confidence that if they built a nice arena in the middle of the action near the strip, they would get tons of attention, much more than the coyotes ever got

    I think canada deserves more teams, I am just nervous though because their economy is on such a spike right now, if we send too many teams there they may begin to fail economically once canada settles back down. I would like to see the NHL put requirements on the canadian teams to do things like owning their arena and maintaining long term ad and TV deals so that we know they can stay there for a long time, and then see hamilton (or another gta team), qc, and other canadian areas get teams

    Houston, TX – The 4th most populated city in the US.

    What’s with all of the thumbs down I’m getting? Houston has already been exposed to professional hockey via the Aeros of the AHL. I looked up their attendance and it is one of the best in the league; 5th place in a league of 30 teams, actually. If they do that well for an AHL team, I can see them doing quite well for an NHL team; far better than the Coyotes in Glendale, I’d say. Houston already has a suitable arena, which holds 17,800 for ice hockey games.

    I want to see them stay in Phoenix because if they move it would be bad for Phoenixes economy but if I had to pick one it would be Seattle

  19. Awesome August 15, 2013 at 8:36 pm

    I hope that it stays in Phoenix. It’s bad for business for a team to relocate.
    And they are a solid franchise; they may not be the Red Wings or the Canadians, but they’re a team that can play and challenge for a playoff seed on a regular basis. They have a few really high-end young players (Yandle, Ekman-Larsson), and if they had an owner with deep pockets and could spend to the cap, they’d be a dangerous team.

    But if they have to move, I’d want to see them moved to Hartford. They are passionate about hockey there, and really never had a chance to exist because their owner was mentally challenged. Hartford does need a new arena, but the XL Center is still better than Nassau Coliseum, and it can be upgraded.

    I would be okay with them moving to Kansas City. While I’m happy the Scouts moved to New Jersey, the Sprint Center would be one of the nicer venues in the NHL, and you would already have a built-in rivalry with the St. Louis Blues.

    I’ve thought Seattle for many years now. 🙂

  22. fleury292001 August 15, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    It would be great if Seattle got a team but I don’t want it to come at Seattle’s expense. Maybe if it was the islanders or predators that moved it would be great.

  23. Martin August 15, 2013 at 11:20 pm

    I doubt they will move soon, but I’d like to see them go to Quebec City (first choice) or Seattle (bring back the Metropolitans).

  24. josh August 15, 2013 at 11:21 pm

    Seattle definately there’s enough teams in that wasteland they call a country and Quebec sucks anyways it’s all ice there

  25. viphockey4 August 15, 2013 at 11:57 pm

    It doesnt matter what we think there are already perimeters they must follow if they move the franchise (or better worded…when they move the franchise). I get why a lot of people would prefer Quebec or even Hamilton but the bottom line is the NHL has a tv contract currently that REQUIRES them to maintain 23 U.S. based franchises so on pure legality alone that limits the choices. To go a step further that very contract calls for any move to be to a city that offers a comparable market in veiwship size and potential advertizing dollars (the tv people need to sell ads to pay the contract). That leaves only 2 potential markets tha meet all the tv deal requirements the league agreed to….Seattle and Houston (and yes Bettman has admitted meeting with a potential Houston group in the past year). The clearcut choice at this point would seem to be Seattle as they have 2 potential ownership groups both of which have the financial means to bring in a franchise and they have moved forward on an arena deal (the NBA has been involved all along to potentially have a dual purpose arena). They also have the major corporate dollars both a franchise and tv contract could be satisfied with and Seattle already has successful lower level hockey both pro and rec. at the moment along with a natural potential rival 3 hours away in Vancouver. So if they move the NHL has rules which they must abide by or risk a massive tv deal which the other owners will have no desire to do….Seattle clearly makes the most sense!
