that's the complete season by season record for each team in the Q, i'll let you make your own assessment. check the last 4 expansion teams records (Baie-Comeau, Halifax, Moncton, PEI/Montreal). I'm not counting teams like Lewiston, Cape Breton who were relocated. arguably the best franchise of those four was Halifax who played 4 games under .500 - in only in their second season. Moncton didn't have a winning record until their 5th year. first years are rough for any expansion team.
