I can assure you one thing, while there are some wannabe Habs fans in Quebec City (and there has always been) there is more ''peeing guy on habs logo stickets'' in this city than in any other anywhere in the world. (Pretty sure LA has some Rangers fans and NYC some Kings fans).

I do agree with that it would hurt the league much more to move another team to Canada after this lockout than to move it within the USA. But that goes the inline with the argument that Gary Bettman hates us.

Anyway lets stop going off topic about other cities. If Seattle gets an NBA team, things are only looking positive for an NHL entity to follow.
