    Yeah! this city is trying to get some signatures to get this team back in the NHL... nice project!

    if you want to sign for them.. juste go there:
    www.retourdesnordiques.com this is a french website so you click on
    " Signez la Pétition! " under the Nordique word in red..
    and then type:
    your name,
    your email,
    confirm your email
    and your City...

    Thanks Dude!
     
  2. Nordiques! I loved the old Montreal/Quebec rivalry. It wasn't as legendary as Montreal/Toronto or Montreal/Boston, but it always ensured a lot of fights and hostility between fans. Amazing!

    I think the NHL has enough teams already. Get rid of a couple expansion teams *ahem Carolina, Columbus ahem* and then bring back the 'diques. :)

    Not going to happen.

    In case you didn't know, one of the reasons why the NHL went to sh*t is because there are too many teams.

    I'm all for moving a team from one of those pointless Southern cities that has no right even having a team back to Quebec, but that would make too much sense I guess.
     
  5. I signed it. Go me.

    Carolina wasn't an expansion team, they moved from Hartford...that club, reguardless of where they are has some history...like sucking for about 17 consecutive seasons.

    Man, I want to see a new team in Winnipeg, that'd be sweet.

    They should just relocate the Avalance back. Easy fix. :D
     
  8. I think Winnipeg is more likely to get a team back before Quebec City is... from what I understand they have a basically new stadium sitting there still waiting for an NHL team to come back.

    And Carolina made it to the finals a couple years ago... so they didn't suck for one of those seasons.

    It would be great if that happened.....Quebec deserves it. It must have been crushing to lose their team after years of "almost, but not quite" and then see them immediately thereafter win a couple of Stanley Cups in Denver.
     


  11. Just doing what I can :D




    Speaking of franchises, rumor has it Mark Cuban wants to buy the St. Louis Blues and move them to Houston. I know it's just word of mouth rumor, but I hope it's true.
