Won't happen due to territorial rights, which is why I have major doubts about the "source" of this "Governor".
Territorial rights are a sticky issue
In one part on the NHL constitution it states (lets call this rule 56)
No owner can move their franchise, without approval
but many experts think that this is unlawful and if it ever was challenged in court it would fail
so then later it states if rule 56 is found to be unlawful then this rule applies
if a franchise moves a team to within the boundries of another team, the franchise being moved must pay the existing franchise.
now this 'fee' is supposs to be negotiated between the two team. But the team refuses to co-operated then it goes to some sort of abritrator.
The interesting this is that when Balsille wanted to move the team to hamilton, his lawyer hinted to fact that they believed that territorial fee was unlawful, and that if challenged in court that this rule might also be unlawful
