SPECULATION: Bulldogs potentially to Laval?

Courtesy of the business of hockey board....

Quote:
On Monday, Molson was in Laval to launch Place Bell, a $120 million sports complex that will include an arena. Place Bell is scheduled for completion in 2015. Molson said the new arena would be able to hold 10,000 spectators a game. He also said that he arena will be the home of a pro-level hockey team. Molson stopped short of saying that team would be the Hamilton Bulldogs.

Long story short, for those not interested in going to the link, a modern arena more than suitable for the AHL is being built in Laval, a large suburb of Montreal, the owners of the Habs are directly involved, the Bulldogs don't have a new lease in Hamilton as of yet, the Erie Otters of the OHL might be looking to relocate themselves into Hamilton (and I've heard from more than a few Hamiltonian BoHers that they're more interested in the OHL than the AHL), and put that all together and you have the speculation of a relocation in a few years for the Bulldogs.

Bulldogs owner Michael Andlauer is saying that he wants to stay in Hamilton, but is getting frustrated, for what it's worth.

Any thoughts?
