Labatt Bleue is a must have in terms of sponsor. Makes so much sense.

The new realignment being accepted by the NHLPA, it looks like we're ****ed. It looks much harder to change the divisions in case of relocation from west to east.

They ran something like this a few years ago.

And in the reportage most people they interviewed in Seattle said they are not sure if hockey will be viable there as there's not a huge push for it and it's not part of the culture.

Remember that the NHLPA asked the NHL what would happen if the Coyotes had to move to Quebec City. They must have received an acceptable answer if they accepted the proposal. I'm sure the NHL has a contingency plan in case the team has to move. Don't read to much into it. If you want to read into something, read into the "we will revaluate after the 2014-15 season" thing. Our arena is set to open in Septembre of 2015. Coincidence? I think not

Which is pretty funny considering RDS's efforts to sell Seattle as a hockey market.

He also explained how Key Arena was a great place that can hold 15 000 fans and only needed a new scoreboard to be NHL ready.

Maybe it can hold 15,000 fans, but how many unobstucted seats are there? 10,000? They will take a financial bath in that arena unless people are willing to pay reasonable prices for partially obstructed or fully obstructed seats.

The journalist was already there to cover the Montreal Impact game...

Get your facts straight.

They still asked him to promote Seattle's NHL bid, who cares if he was there primarly for the Impact game? The funny thing is that a Bell-owned network promotes Seattle has an NHL city, that's it.

I just find it very funny. It is quite obvious that it is a little jab at their competition. No biggie, just funny and a little pathetic.

When half the province is "parano", the doctor maybe wrong.

Almost all and every time Renaud Lavoie talk about this, he "almost" never mention Quebec city as a candidate. But Seattle and Las Vegas are candidates for Coyotes relo.

Lavoie and RDS are nothing else but Bell media representatives in this matter. Zero objectivity for zero credibility.

Wonder what the Quebec city RDS subscribers think about the Ontario Teachers plan owned channel services?

Don't give ideas to PKP/Quebecor. Imagine Julie Snyder or an ex-Star Academie winner as coach
