You would think that fans in Quebec would be smart enough to realize that they have to eat their brussel spouts before they get dessert. They are definitely sending a less than enthusing message to the NHL in regards to future relocatioin or expansion.
Maybe it has to do with the marketing. I didn't even know until yesterday that they were going to play in Quebec.
But if the NHL can have a team in Florida, TB, Carolina, Phx, etc, then they can have one in Qc. They don't need to test the market with a preseason game. It's all about sponsors and corporate deals anyways.
