Another point… The game will be shown on giant screens in the Quebec Pepsi Colisée to a capacity crowd of 15 000 +. The goal is to demonstrate to the NHL brass that Quebec City is ready to get its Nordiques back… (http://matchbleu.com)

By how – watching TV? I hope that the event sponsorship for this thing is out of the world, since it was that – and not the fans – that caused the ‘Diques to move.

Their next event will be to go down to a New Jersey-Boston game in April 2100 strong… It is a 12 hour bus drive…

There are two teams in the NHL that I truly enjoy defeating. The Dallas Stars and the Montreal Canadiens. Let’s Go Thrashers!

Anyone who does not believe in booing the refs has should be convinced that it does have an effect on them after seeing the penalty call against Buff. What a joke.
