They suported the Titans/Voisins for a long time. But the building is a rat hole with water leaking from the roof (like so many arenas in the Province). A new building will bring much more people into it.

However, if the AHL plan doesn't work, how about a Q team ? With good marketing, it could work. However, I think Farell Miller would have a say about that one like he did with the Lewiston move. But it would be a great rivalry: Montreal vs Laval, suburbia vs downtown.

And I sure hope Montreal eventually steps up and builds this kind of building, because it's not acceptable that the Verdun Auditorium is the biggest hockey arena in the city... it's barely standing and so uncomfortable.
