Geoff Molson has reiterated several times that he is in favor of the return of the Nordiques to Quebec. According to him, the rivalry along Highway 20 is very good for all Quebecers.

If the capital's market is considered too small in the eyes of Gary Bettman, the fans are certainly much more passionate than in many other cities currently hosting a hockey team. The people of Quebec are able to fill a National Hockey League (NHL) arena for junior games, which speaks volumes.

For these reasons, the Canadiens (CH) enjoy playing preseason games at the Centre Vidéotron, and the people of Quebec are also delighted. The CH was even willing to return there in the upcoming season at no cost, but it is the Los Angeles Kings who will be hosting two games in Quebec.

Controversy has erupted over this decision. Not only because the Canadiens should have been favored according to many, but also because the Kings will receive 7 million from the government for their visit, while the CH asked for nothing.


"The Canadiens just confirmed to me the story originally reported by
Alexandre Pratt, from La Presse.

The Habs offered to play in Quebec City next preseason with no government subsidies... and were refused.

Instead, the province is offering up to $7M for the LA Kings "

This situation is absolutely absurd, and many Quebecers are furious. It's safe to say that explanations will be demanded regarding this decision.
