According to Mr.Michel Bergeron, it would also force the Habs to draft a lot more quebecers. It does make some sense, Mtl could potentially lose some fans if Qc started having a good team made of a lot of Quebecers.
Personally, i used to love the Nords, but it was mainly thanks to Joe Sakic, the best.
If Qc turned out to be an expansion team or a relocated team, I don't think id switch back to them.
