Imho it might even become worse if the Nordiques come back, they'll be jealous if its a franco heavy team but won't necessarily cheer for them (city rivalry comes in, I mean would a Montrealer cheer for a team in Quebec City over their own?). Just be more annoying about the Habs as a result.
I have 1st hand experience of jumping from hated rival to 'fan'. When the Expos were around, I was a huge fan and wanted the Jays to lose. After they moved to Washington, I eventually started following the Jays due to living in Toronto and being exposed to them.

All I can say is, if the Expos come back I jump ship, but for the time being I'm a cynical Jays fan who's quick to turn on them when they suck.
