    I just wonder how long before the NHL starts looking at ownership in Quebec or Seattle?

    I think Seattle is interesting. I don't know enough about Quebec City, but Seattle has the corporate climate for a team to be successful. It's not just about rabid fans, it's more about corporate money, and a concrete plan.

    Look at Winnipeg, it took them a while, but they had a good arena, and spent years cultivating business support, and had good management in place.

    Quebec City is in the early stages of arena development. Back in the 80's Montreal and Quebec was the best rivalry in all of hockey and right up there in all of sports.

    I don't have any doubt that Quebec city would be a great fanbase once again, but what is the corporate climate like there? I honestly have no idea, but you need millions of dollars from businesses for suites, advertising, sponsorship, etc.

    I loved the Nordiques...

    Can Bettman and Fehr be fired? Millionaires vs. Billionaires and the fans lose. Take a 50-50 split and play hockey
    PLAY THE SOUTH

    Yes and Yes.

    This lockout is really fucking up my plans. Getting married in a month and my gift to all of my groomsmen was to take them all to a Blackhawks game vs. the Shark on Sat, Oct 27th. Sat night games are very rare for the Hawks since the Bulls have usual Saturday night rights at the UC. Don't know what to do now.

    despite 2 lockouts under Bettman,

    he's just a puppet for the owners.

    I agree...as part of the management team and whether he agrees with the union or not he should still treat them with respect. The Wings haven't been land the quality of FA's they are used to as of late...can't see these comments helping.
