Hypothetically speaking if Fredericton got a new arena I think that the Q would work here. Mainly because of the close proximity of so many other teams. It would create quite the martime rivalry. However, it would be far from a slam dunk.
When the Baby Habs were here I became aware of an anti-french contingent in this town that just refused to support them. While I believe this was primarily with the older generation that is no guarentee that is has gone away. I could totally see people refusing to support a Q team here because it was "too french".

Of course there are also people here who have no interest in University Hockey because Major Junior is just "so much better".
