Even though many Nordiques fans had given up on the possibility of seeing an NHL team in Quebec again, Pierre LeBrun just provided a very interesting update.

Indeed, according to information reported on TSN, LeBrun confirmed that Gary Bettman is considering an expansion in the near future, adding that four cities, including Quebec, are still part of the discussions.

"For me, it's not 'if,' but 'when.' You could feel that listening to Gary Bettman and clearly seeing his body language at the governors' meeting in New York on Wednesday."

"It looked like he was about to say something was going to happen, but he stated: 'No, we're not ready yet.' However, he then spoke of the recurring interest expressed in the conversations he has with the four cities: Atlanta, Houston, Salt Lake City, and Quebec." - Pierre LeBrun



Wow! What a major turn of events!

Of course, there's no guarantee that the Quebec Nordiques will indeed return to the NHL, but it's still a very encouraging sign to hear that the city is still in negotiations with the NHL leaders.

Moreover, it's even more promising when such words come directly from the league's commissioner.

Will we see the return of the Canadiens-Nordiques rivalry within a few years? One thing's for sure, it would be absolutely insane to watch these two teams face off multiple times in the same season.
