Hey guys. Read this up its an interesting article which explains why the Habs and the Canucks(or any Canadian team for that matter) might not be able to have teams in the NHL if the NHL decided to go with replacement players.....really suck...

Big ifs all around, but if it came to the Habs not being allowed to use replacement players in Quebec, then perhaps they could play out of Halifax, or Hamilton, or Winnipeg, or, failing that, anywhere that lets them play, really. Cleveland. Kansas City. Seattle. No worries.

I don't know whether we would want to be part of any quasi-NHL utilizing scabs.

I would. I'm almost to the kind of twisted state where I'd rather see the scabs than the regular players.

I'm not there... at least for now. I stopped caring about a month ago but I love following our prospects nontheless! Right now I'm trying to put the NHL aside and hopefully time will pass quick and things will resolve behind my back, and when I turn around, the NHL will be there

No way!
I'm maybe a bit too possessive. But damn. It's our team, The Winnipeg Canadiens ? Wtf. You really want to move this team to Ontario ? I know I dont.

Pretty sure there could be an amendment to law.

This is nothing new , we've known about the labour laws problem from the first mention of replacement players .

First off, there may not be a replacement player league , which would make this discussion irrelevant anyway.

Second , does anyone honestly think that the NHL would not find a way to have Montreal bypass these laws? The NHLPA isn't a real Union so , there's definitely a loop hole in the whole "labour law" debate.

Just nitpicking... But Winnipeg isn't in Ontario. Unless you meant Hamilton or that lost place where Darz lives.

Just to clarify - if it so happens that this infernal impasse still exists next year and the NHL, in it's infinite wisdom, decides that they want to reanimate the WHA of yesteryear, I say huzzah! Just don't call them the Montreal Canadiens.

it is not so simple about the replacement players...
i invite you to go to the habrus board ;there is more info about the laws and the possible issue of the move.

taken from the habrus board;


The issue of replacement workers could open another front in Canada, which delegates authority to provincial labor boards with varying standards and practices.

It is illegal to use replacement workers in Quebec and British Columbia, where the Montreal Canadiens and Vancouver Canucks, play. Owners could argue that hockey players in Canada are not employees but rather independent contractors who are not covered by the labor code.

Also, there are questions about whether the provinces recognize the NHLPA as a certified union, like the UAW or the Teamsters, which are protected from replacement workers taking their jobs.

"In Quebec, hockey players are not covered by the labor code," said Michele Poitras, spokeswoman for the Quebec Ministry of Labor.
