We all know that a Q or AHL team would have made HUGE money during the lockout. Hell, the Chiefs/Verdun teams did brisk business at the Bell Centre during the lockout.

The hockey faithfuls here need an alternative option. Whoever comes up with it, will be a rich man. (High attendance and TV sells should be enough to make a good-enough profit.)
As somebody already mentioned, we've had Q teams in the Montreal area and they did NOT do well. The Rocket packed up and moved. The Titans de Laval moved as well.
We have to ask ourselves...Is Montreal a Hockey city or a Habs city? How many people have been continuing to follow the playoffs once the Habs were eliminated? Go to Champs or any Cage aux Sports and see the difference.
