Probably just move the team back to the other arena, in the Pheonix area iirc.

The league will not want to move out of such a large television market, even though few people actually watch on tv.

Or... maybe they move the team somewhere else to give the Centre of the Universe Leafs fans hope that their treasured Auston Matthews won't sign elsewhere when his contract runs out and he's UFA.

Never going to happen.

Stranger things have happened... like an all-Canadian division.  (Sure, the pandemic forced the league's hand in that, but there's no reason why Alex Meruelo wouldn't just say, "&^@# all y'all" and shut the team down and write off the losses.)

It's possible they stay in Arizona, but move back into Phoenix area, the team would be able to generate a much better fan base there. The building in Glendale, was not well thought out for fan access.

 

Personally, would like to see them move to either Houston or to Portland.

Before that would happen, the league would revoke the franchise leaving him empty handed.

 

I bet the league is already counting on some decent coin in the form of a relocation fee.
