The authorities of Quebec desires an NHL group in Quebec City. Premier François Legault had opened the door to talk with the NHL in November, professing an interest in seeing professional hockey return to Quebec City.
Quebec government officials met with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman the day gone by and have been given awful information. The NHL told the Quebec government, there's no hobby currently from the NHL having a group in Quebec City.
Right now, it seems like the Nordiques will now not be creating a come again any time soon. Quebec authorities officers could be watching the scenario closely in Arizona and Calgary.
The Coyotes need a brand new area to play in and the crew cannot find a metropolis that wants to build an area. If Quebec had been to be granted every other team it might likely be the Coyotes franchise.
The other alternative is the Flames transferring. The team and city had a deal in location for a brand new arena inside the downtown Calgary core however that has fallen thru, leaving ownership to decide if they need to spend money on the Calgary Saddledome or likely circulate the crew. (my cash is the town and Flames ownership agreeing to a new deal on a brand new area within the downtown center)
