Same goes with Québec , it's already a hockey market , the NHL have no effort to make , to sell their product. they are waiting for a franchise with an owner willing to pay . Plus , the fans wants to have another franchise so much that they wouldnt care to get an expension team. the Collisé would be full , night after night , even if the teams finish dead last for a few years in a row ... somthing that probably couldnt work in a new hockey market like Seattle.

It makes sense business wise, for the NHL to act like this .
Do you think it would work in those three locations (Toronto, Quebec City and Seattle)?
