Remember that the reason the AHL affiliate is in Hamilton to begin with is because a QMJHL team worked better in Quebec City than an AHL one did.

This is common throughout Canada. OHL, QMJHL, WHL teams have always drawn bigger attendance than AHL teams.
Strictly because Quebec city (one of the wealthiest city in North America during the last 10 years) does not want to be the farm city of Montreal. In the Montreal region, the AHL farm would draw a lot of interest imo.
