Quebec City sent a solid slap in the face to Gary Bettman and the NHL

Sunday saw the conclusion of the last QMJHL series between the Quebec Remparts and the Halifax Mooseheads, with Patrick Roy’s team winning with a thrilling victory in game six.

All three games of the championship series in Quebec were attended by sold-out audiences, and the Remparts received unheard-of support from its supporters. This contrasts with the ludicrous narrative of the Coyotes in Arizona, where no city is prepared to accept the NHL club.

Take a look at the photos of the fans cheering on their winning team as they arrived back from Halifax late last night.

With a huge audience gathered outside the Center Vidéotron, it was just amazing!

The Nordiques’ eagerly awaiting Quebec supporters sent Gary Bettman a strong message. The most compelling argument the city could make to the league commissioner is that it is ready for an NHL team.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
