My bet would be to Portland or another city with a NBA team.
From the infamous Wrestleline SS interview:
DTD: If you were to make changes in WCW, if you were in charge and not Ric Flair, what would they be?
SS: I'd get rid of all the old guys, and push the talent that has waited to get the push. The things they are doing, it's back in the 1980s. It's just bad, man. Flair doesn't even deserve to be on the show. You've got to get rid of all the old guys. Like what Vince did, they started pushing guys. Nobody knew who The Rock was 2 years ago. He made The Rock. Now The Rock just did Saturday Night Live. You've got to start with the young talent, talent people can relate to. Who are we trying to relate to if we've got a 50 year old man out there? Are we trying to relate, so a 50 year people and above will go out and buy a f*cking little toy? That ain't gonna happen. It's a f*cking joke.
They won't be coming to San Diego. The arena here is older than dirt, and there isn't going to be a new one built. There have been way too many problems with the Chargers and their lease, and there were buttloads of lawsuits filed after the Padres stadium was approved by the voters of San Diego. The Sabres would have nowhere to play. My guess is Portland. Paul Allen could by them and put them in the Rose Garden.

Well, I can dream, right? Hopefully, if they have to move (I'd like them to stay in Buffalo), they'll move somewhere where they can keep their third jersey (see left) as their main jersey. After all, they're the SABRES, not the BUFFALOES. (I liked their original jersey's so much better).
For the love of all that is good, keep them away from Texas. Florida, too, has its share of franchises already. San Jose, Anaheim, LA... does Cali need another team?
New Orleans wouldn't be horrible, but I'd rather see them go ANYWHERE in Canada than to some crappy or glutted market in the southern US. Portland I could live with, too (though I'd prefer them to stay in the East so I can see them play live around here as much as possible).
The NHL Owners reportedly dropped the hammer today in the opening round of negotiations between them and the NHLPA. (care of http://www.ontheforecheck.com/2012/7/13/3158336/nhl-cba-owners-players-revenue-free-agency-negotiation and many others).
