The look on MacKinnon's face when the relocation was announced would be priceless.

Why would MacKinnon care, he's out of the Q after this season...

That right belongs to the Q...

They blocked the sale of the Junior the first time around because he wanted to keep the right.

It won't be Cape Breton. We can still draw 2300 fans with a lineup that looks like a Tier II outfit. Bathurst would kill for those numbers.

Un groupe composé du président du Canadien de Montréal Geoff Molson, l’ancien président des Cataractes Réal Breton et Peter Simons s’affairerait depuis plusieurs mois déjà à l’implantation d’une nouvelle concession de la Ligue de hockey junior majeur du Québec à Trois-Rivières, selon Le Nouvelliste.

The Rocket is not moving. They would not plan a rebrand and then move. VP of Operations Trent Birt made a statement on the Rocket board that the Rocket is dedicated to staying and working on the Island.

These relocation rumours are getting tiring...Next!

It's been two years. 1 more and we're good.

I'd like to see Longueuil!

Thanks for this! I do remember the MAINEiacs situation too well and recall they went a year with 17 teams and added Sherbrooke a year later..so I guess Jan 31 is not the be all and end all.

In this article, there is very little doubt left that the Rocket was indeed the team negociating with this group:
http://www.lapresse.ca/le-nouvellist...nclenchee.php?

"Dans un monde idéal, ils voulaient garder le secret jusqu'en mars, question de terminer d'attacher toutes les petites ficelles et ne pas placer une épée de Damoclès au-dessus du Rocket de l'Île-du-Prince-Édouard, l'équipe visée par un éventuel transfert."

So much for the Islanders....

Sounds like Trois Rivieres would play hard ball if Shawinigan tries to get in the way according to this article.

http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/blogs/jrh...065825161.html

Quote from the article

Either Trois-Rivières gets a major junior team or "it will look for the American League," which would require an even larger seating capacity and operating budget than a Q team. In other words, accept a huge threat to your bottom line or the gigantic one.

Junior turf war anyone?
