The QMJHL needs a franchise in the Montreal area for marketing and TV purposes. Quebecor has a significant interest in the Boisbriand franchise in the Q.

Presently on the island of Montreal, Laval or the south shore you do not have an arena that is adequate for a Q or AHL team.

The Canadiens stopped operating their top minor pro teams out of the Forum in the early seventies since they simply did not draw as well as other events. They stopped operating a Q team in the second half of the eighties.
