A city as small as Quebec couldn't support a major sports franchise under those economic circumstances. It had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the Habs rivalry.

And while Patrick Roy is from Quebec City, he has nothing to do with the Nordiques relocation and his issues with Mario Tremblay had nothing to do with the Nordiques relocation either. I have absolutely no idea why you even brought up Casseau.
Exactly the Nordiques left because their was a 60 cent Canadian dollar compared to the US. There was no prospect of a salary cap in the near future, no revenu sharing. And there was no prospect of a new Arena cause our mayor at the time hated anything that had to do with sports, especially pro sport.

Now all of the above have drasticly improved.
