The Athletic's recent exposé on their ownership really makes me think they're headed for relocation.

Quebec, so we can bring in this beauty logo that never got to see much of the light of day when the Nordiques rebranded just before going to Colorado:

For everyone saying quebec, no... it creates an East West imbalance again. It needs to be central. Houston or Kansas City, or Milwaukee....

Houston would come first imo and it's close to Arz so fanbase doesn't shift too much

They tried Kansas City a long time ago with the Scouts. They don't often go back to places that they move teams from. They went back to Colorado, Minnesota, Atlanta, Winnipeg, and the Bay Area. They don't go back often.

It is amazing that the whole state of Texas (and all the states it borders) has only one NHL team.

Houston may be next...but Austin would be my dark horse.

I feel like there's a number of things that would hold back relocation:
-Bettman: I don't think he'd ever admit to being wrong about this city. They've been through a ton, and he still hasn't backed down or considered moving the franchise.
-Teams in the same Provinces/States as proposed relocation sites: Remember when Hamilton was a potential relocation/expansion site? MLSE shut that $hit down hard! I can't imagine Montreal, Dallas, or any team that has their own local market wrapped up right now would be super happy about opening their doors to another team (Though, IMO, it'd be a smart move).
-East/West imbalance if they go to Quebec (Again, this can be fixed pretty easily, but doesn't seem like a happy time for whatever team gets shifted out).
-Seattle expansion: I can't imagine the NHL wants to take any focus off of a new team coming into the league, meaning that this would only happen in 3 years or so, at which time we'll likely have seen at least 1 new ownership group in Arizona.

This isn't me saying that Arizona should relocate, because I'd love for the Nordiques to be a thing again (Or for Houston to have a team...buncha cheaters...), I just think there's wayyyy too many obstacles in the way for this to happen anytime soon, no matter how scum-bagey that organization has become.
