Let them be in Hamilton. Hamilton people were disappointed after the failed NHL team. The fans will come back.
If Laval gets the Bulldogs, attendance won't be better because the Habs will be the only team Montrealers support. There was a AHL affiliate in Sherbrooke before and it failed as well. Montreal had many QMJHL and most failed as well. We have the Montreal Juniors QMJHL again however the attendance must be low.
