But Quebec still being 2nd on the list, even with Winnipeg solved, and Coyotes, Isles, Panthers, Hurricanes and others teams losing big buck, I don't think a new expansion is soon to be seen, and if you don't give the next team to Quebec, you can be sure people won't accept 400$ mil in tax money going into winds just like that.
You wrong my friend, even if we are dissapointed with not getting the Coyotes, Quebec really needs a new arena, NHL hockey or not. So the thing is getting build no matter what and its start this summer.

The posters on this thread seem to be in the wait and see mode, right now, particulary since our local TV stations, broke the news (which the NHL is denying since they don't want to screw over ticket sales in Phoenix) that Jamieson has been approved in principle and the Coyotes are staying. On the QC thread, they seem totally blind to this even being possible.

We, people of Québec have been following this issue for a long time , unlike people from Seattle who just started following the Coyotes situation, have heard those ''done deals ownership in Phoenix'' so many times. So as long as the board of governors of the NHl as not approved the sale, the Coyotes possible relocation is very alive. This issue will be resolved within two months. Either the team stays in Phoenix with a new owner that will go bankrupt or it moves to Quebec City.

Need to let the political process work now. Its moving fast in Seattle. First public meeting was last night. Goal is to be ready by NBA relocation deadline (Hornets).

Bellevue is getting ready just in case Seattle screws this up.

It looking really good for NHL and NBA in the Seattle area.

Exagerrate much?
Again, I predict, that they play 1 more year in Phoenix, that's more likely than them moving to either QC or Seattle.
This effort looks better than the other ones and one of the sportscasters in Seattle who would die to have a team there, confirmed that an agreement has been reached in principle with the NHL and Jamison. The only thing that stands between Jamison and the team now, is negotiations with the City of Glendale.

Maybe I'm a tard, but if the Coyotes are staying, how would the NHL denying that news help ticket sales in Phoenix - wouldn't it help ticket sales in Phoenix?

The only thing? That's like saying I already walked from Montreal to San Francisco, now the only thing I need to do is swim to Tokyo.
