Right now Quebec City could handle it. But if the Canadian dollar drops again it would be the same problem the Habs had but worse because they won't get as much revenues.
True, it was too much for ALL canadian franchises(not in Toronto), Alberta saved the oilers and flames and I remember the Canucks being in a bad shape as well, Melnick had to save the sens. Sure, the dollar could go down again, theres no certainty in the current situation, never pretended otherwise.

Aubut as publicly said he was pushing again, plus Guy Bertrand's group is registered as a lobby, plus the group led by Charest as been pretty vocal... There's names, organizing a 550m$ deal doesn't take 3 months either.
