Trois-Rivières

A group of businessmen is apparently trying to buy a team in the Maritimes to relocate it to Trois-Rivières.

Quote:
Selon ce qu'ont appris de source sûre «L'Écho de Shawinigan» et TVA Trois-Rivières, une formation des Maritimes serait tout près de plier bagage et s'installer en Mauricie.

Un groupe d'hommes d'affaires prospères et bien connus dans le monde du hockey travaillent présentement en coulisse afin d'acquérir cette concession.

«C'est sûr que lorsque nous avons lancé le projet de construction d'un amphithéâtre de 5000 sièges avec des loges corporatives, ce n'était pas seulement pour le hockey mineur. Nous voulions nous positionner pour amener une équipe junior majeure à Trois-Rivières», s'est réjoui le maire Yves Lévesque qui confirme que le montage financier des actionnaires est déjà complété.

Can't get a link to a translation through google translate so I suggest you use GT if you're an unilingual maritimer.

Good, no reason why Trois-Rivières can't support a team.

This would screw up the divisions though...Rimouski goes to the Maritimes division?

Population-wise Fredricton could support a junior team, but if I'm not mistaken the rink there is owned by UNB, where hockey is King. There isn't a place to play for a Q franchise.

Yes I doubt it's the Rocket considering all the name change speculation over the past couple of months. I could see Bathurst or Cape-Breton moving though.

They (T-R mayor and the journalist) seemed confident on TVA earlier that there will be a team in Trois-Rivieres by next season.

As much as I'd like to see the Draveurs came back, it would be a shame to not find out what the Prince Edward Island Prince Edward Islanders of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island are planning to wear. I was looking forward to a PEI dirt red jersey.

Fans would be fuming if its our team were losing we finally have a decent team to go see since the 06-07 season and the numbers are starting to come back the whole name change finally a stability kind of feeling with the franchise but it would not suprise me if the team was moved away all the positives we have been seeing might as well give us a big negative

Nope!

Here is what is written in part of the article:
"Le commissaire s'est par la suite rendu dans les Maritimes, une tournée qui était déjà prévue. Il en aurait toutefois profité pour rencontrer les propriétaires de l'équipe en question ."

Translation:
The Commisioner went afterward in the Maritimes , a tourney which was already planned. He took advantage of that to meet the owners of the team in question.

The only thing I am saying is that it is not Bathurst as Courteau did not visit here and is expected on February 15th.
I says black and white in the article that Courteau already visited and talked to the owners of the moving team.

He was coming to Bathurst in December but had to cancel his flight reservations because of a snow storm in Montreal and Quebec City.
He will be here in February.

The weakest link is clearly Bathurst.
