If you (Not you personally, but Hamilton fans, elitest hockey snobs, Canadian media, etc) are going to gloat over Nashville losing a team, we'll excuse me if I'm just a little bit happy that it blew up in your face.


From what I remember of the Expos move, (i'm a die hard baseball fan and was against them moving), there was little fan backlash against the team, Montreal, or its supporters from fans around the league. It was simply a market or ownership group that was unable or unwilling to support the team. (I remember them selling off Guererro, Martinez, RJ).
As a Pens fan, know exactly what that feels like, but we dealt with it for years instead of months.

I agree del Biaggio is better than Balsillie, but it still sucks, and I personally have a dislike for KC now for obvious reasons.

Hope you guys can get the 14k a game, you deserve to keep the team.
