How does a city get an NHL team?

The key for any city to get an NHL Team is to:

1) have an arena

2) have a willing and able owner or ownership group

3) have an available team either through relocation or expansion.

It pretty much needs to happen in that order the right ownership group can influence all of them. ATL to Winnipeg had all three. PHO to Winnipeg had the first two.
