Anyone hear about this invasion ... It's for the Hawks Wings tilt in April. This weekend they are in Ottawa vs Edmonton and in March in Boston.

Good for them. I didn't want a Quebec team... but with the stupid uneven divisions, I want two expansion teams to make things fair. Plus two more teams might make the skill level go down and might make the goons come back.

Add two teams to wherever they can support a team.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I caught the 3rd period of the Oilers/Sens game Saturday afternoon, and was pleasently surprised to see all the Nordique fans at the Corel Center in Ottawa...Forget Seattle - Quebec City is more than ready, and able to support the Yotes, and in a few more years they'll have a new arena.

It looks like they're just out there to watch some hockey and remind everyone that they would like a team. Not hurting anyone, not getting angry or demanding. Just some folks having good, clean fun. Nothing wrong with that.

It was an impressive showing Saturday in Ottawa. I was lost when they originally started making a bunch of noise (at the 15:15 mark IIRC) until the broadcast crew mentioned what was going on.

What is the relevance of 15:15?

"The more I know about people - the better I like my dog." - Mark Twain

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

I'm taking a guess here, but they moved out to Denver in 1995 and started launching a movement to get the team back in 2010 (the mayor and premier met to discuss a new arena and stuff) so it was 15 years without a team until they started trying to get one back.

Also, the new arena will be completed in 2015. So that's two "15" things that are relevant.

Like I said, it's a guess. Hopefully someone who knows for sure will enlighten us.

After exhaustive searching, this is the correct answer.
With government investigations into the original estimate for the cost of a new arena, the inevitable cost overruns as well as corruption in the construction industry in the province of Quebec, it might be a stretch in thinking that a new arena could be built by 2015. Then again, with the winter they've had, a lot of their home games could be played outdoors.

Hey, maybe they will actually be there at the start of the game so the arena appears to be at least halfway full.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Little bump here...

Was browsing SportsK.com, and found these retro Nordique jerseys both plain, and with player names/numbers already sewn on.

I would love to see a renewed rivalry between the Nords, and the Habs.

Original 6 match up to end the season, national television exposure, yeah I can see why they would want to attend it.

Should be interesting. I appreciate what you folks are doing, even if it is for the lowly Nordiques :D Good luck, spend money, and try not to distract too much from the two Original Six teams playing.

I was there last year in New Jersey, last game against the Devils. There were 2000 of us and we had a blast and I think the fans did too. When we left, people were begging us to come back this year. We're doing this for the love of the game.

Bienvenue!

J'espère que vous avez un très bon moment au jeu, et faire des tonnes de bruit ... Difficile de croire qu'un nouvel aréna sera en cours de construction de cette fin de l'été, et avec qui, il ya l'espoir de vos Nordiques du scrutin ainsi.
