Doan is looking for reasons to stay, not reasons to leave. If the team has any stability at all then he'll remain a desert dog. He's a UFA regardless, but his intentions are to remain unless the franchise remains as unstable as it has for the past few years.


Yeah I know all that.

and seattle still has the seahawks and mariners... what's your point?

also, QC has no one, which is clearly the subject, not the entire province, just the city.

Brooklyn has a better chance than Seattle. Brooklyn now has a greater population then Manhattan.

I would take QC, I don't know alot about Seatle's situation but Quebec has an Arena on the way, and they also have the boxes sold out, so the arena (once built to NHL Standards) will be 100% ready to go.


And for Ownership they have media giant Quebecor.

All the pieces seem to be coming into place.

While in Seattle last week, they were talking about the new arena deal on the news. It's apparently over one of the initiatives in the deal. Anyone know anything about it? It comes down to how quickly they can get the shovels in the ground, before they get the NBA, let alone an NHL franchise. BUT, they do want both, in order to get the funding is my understanding.

Seattle isn't chopped liver though, they've got things underway as well.

Yeah I know, that's why I said I don't know much about there situation, but It seems to me like Quebec is much closer to having a team.

I can only see the Islanders going to Brooklyn at this point... like really... 4 NYC metro teams? At least the Islanders are in an aged arena, and can have the NBA's Nets as a co-tenant.

Brooklyn is on long island... and they just built a new building, but it's too small for a NHL team. the only way brooklyn is getting a team in the islanders moving 25 miles west into a smaller, but newer, building (and technically, they already have a team in the Islanders).

seattle is close to having their ground breaking, basically as soon as a team is coming the work will start. the only resistance right now is the port of seattle claiming the traffic might be too heavy, but they already submitted reports stating otherwise (the arena would, for the most part, be used at different times than the baseball and football stadiums). and with the CEO of Microsoft, and the 2 owners of Nordstroms backing the bid, it's pretty much a foregone conclusion at this point.

I think Quebec will get a fanchise before Seattle. I also feel that the Islanders will build a new stadium in the next few years.

Yeah both area's seem ready.

Imo Quebec seems more ready since they already have the Arena approved and underway.

And personally I would like to see Quebec get a team back, having Seattle would be really nice for us Nuck's fans but as a Canadian I would like to see another Canadian team, and I feel for them since Winnipeg got there team back and they haven't.

I would hate for us to loose our team, and I can only imagine how they feel. I just would like them to get there team back, they deserve it, especially for all the crap they went through when they had there team. Like the Lindros saga, and then seeing that team go to Colorado and win the cup then next year must have been heartbreaking to say the least (although I know Quebec wouldn't have got Roy but still)

the only problem is I don't see betteman allowing canada to get another team so quickly, though I hope I'm wrong.
