Realigning the new Alignment

After writing a lengthy blog post and making arguments for expansion and realignment, I somehow lost my post into internet oblivion.

So, I'll recap and ask for your thoughts.

Hypothesis #1: The NHL will expand into Seattle and Kansas City (Seattle into the Pacific, Kansas City into the Central) and create conference equilibrium with 16 teams each.

Hypothesis #2: Two hot-weather teams will relocate to cooler climates: Florida to Quebec City and Phoenix to Salt Lake City.

Within the next six years, will the NHL have teams in Seattle, Salt Lake City, Kansas City and Quebec City?
