Plot twist in the saga of the return of the Quebec Nordiques

Last week, the general managers' meeting took place in Seattle. On this occasion, various topics were discussed, including the possibility of further expansion in the NHL.

There are increasing rumors about this, with at least four very serious potential destinations being considered by Gary Bettman and his team. According to Pierre LeBrun, the NHL is exploring the option of adding four teams, bringing the total to 36.

This is significant news for the people of Quebec, who may now more than ever believe in the return of their team. It's known that Salt Lake City, Houston, and Atlanta are also prime locations for establishing a team.

However, Gary Bettman has once again tempered expectations by stating that no expansion plan is currently on the table. His strategy is well-known, aiming to drive up the bidding as potential new teams would have to pay astronomical amounts to join the NHL.

Perhaps most disheartening is the commissioner's continued confidence in keeping the Coyotes in Arizona. It's truly disappointing.
