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.
The NHL will never accept the most titled franchise in the history to be moved in another city.. Thats a totally unrealistic scenario and quite useless thread..
