But word has been out for awhile that Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver could support a second NHL team with ease. Hockey is blood in Canada. The studies and claims are out there, ... University of Toronto etc and so forth. Go get 'em.
There was a team in ancient NHL history called the Quebec Bulldogs. I wonder if the fans would go for that, or would they feel a more nostalgic appeal for Nordiques and Expos?
I mean, I know there is a big expansion drive to put more NHL on the map to grow the sport, so it really won't happen for a long long time, but it's fun to think about.
