Yeah they're out of Duluth, its a pain to get to. I live just south of Atlanta and it takes a hour to get there, and that's without traffic.

No matter where a team is placed someone will be unhappy about it.

Ville de Quebec only wants an NHL team.
When the Nords left an old IHL team the Rafales (which interestingly were the Atlanta Knights relocated) but only lasted 2 seasons.
The Remparts have upwards of 11,000 attendance.........can't see minor pro in Quebec working with the strong following of the Rems. Nor do I think anyone really wants minor pro in Quebec City.

There is a noisy group from Quebec behind one goal in Detroit today.

Actually they just finished up their 9th season. When Atlanta had the Knights, Tampa Bay was the NHL affiliate so perhaps in the future Tampa may want to have its AHL team a little closer. I wouldn't mind a Nashville-Atlanta/Gwinnett affiliation either just because the Preds are a good organization.

You just have to convince the right person to switch from Cincinnati. Good Luck!

I meant if Gwinnett became an AHL team and Nashville ended their affiliation with Milwaukee.
