Leafs won't be able to prevent Quebec from having a team, they will be the next Canadian City to get a team if the NHL expands or another team struggles with revenue.
But yeah, Seattle is the confirmed Plan B since Bettman has already discussed plans with Seattle's mayor. If the City of Glendale can't approve the funds to keep the Coyotes in Phoenix on July 2nd, it will relocate to be the Seattle Metropolitans.
