Second, Quebec & Portland. Quebec is ready to roll. These two teams make for 34, 17-17, which is a bizarre number. But the NHL will say "ringing the Nordiques home is the right thing to do… and since Seattle's doing so well…"
Sorry, but I really dont see Québec being ignored once expansion is given the go ahead.
I mean... our building has almost finished being built. While we are still speaking of theoretical arenas in Las Vegas and Seattle (and of a very, very hypothetical one in Seattle).
I truly believe that once expansion will be given the go ahead (and that could be in a few years), Québec will be part of the ''first batch''.
