It would help the kids and give them the taste of what a carrer with the Habs would look like . They could train in Brossard at the top of the line complex Gillet just build for the team.

The AHL team in Quebec didn't work because people were relly over the Nordiques and it was in that old ass Colisé wich is surrounded by ugly 50's appartement blocks.
Both teams training in Brossard is actually a very good idea, as both clubs could be watched at the same time, like Philly used to do with the Phantoms and Flyers.

Anyone who has been to the training camp practices at Pierrefonds knows exactly how hab-starved the city can get. Promote the team as "The Habs of the Future" and you'll get the crazies (ie most people on this board probably) out in spades.
You mean the crazies who have no money ?

No need for a AHL team in Quebec. But a second Q team would be a good idea, on the south Shore.
