If they want more money out of Quebec or Seattle they'll just use Vegas as another option which is basically the NHL trying to increase their leverage.
So by your logic, sell a team in a crappy market will make teams in a good market want to buy? Sorry still makes no sense.
EDIT: Oh did the Vegas expansion fail? I'm sure we won't fail. (Any businessman willl know)
