Now let's say in this scenario the new owner decides to move the Montreal Canadiens to a random market in the United States and get a complete overhaul like the Jets did when the Thrashers moved to Winnipeg. Now my question is: would you still be a fan of that team?

Now personally, yes because I've invested too much time on following the hype of our prospect pool and following the development of Pacioretty, Subban, Price, Galchenyuk, etc. It would hurt too much not to see them blossom into what I believe they can become.

I would also stop caring in any way about the NHL. This process has already begun seeing how the game has gotten worse every single year since 1993 when I started watching.

Should the habs move this would be game over for me. The league would need to do something incredible to get me back.
