"The only possible scenario for the Nordiques' return is for the Ottawa Senators to move" Says Insider

As you are no doubt aware, hopes are slim for the Nordiques' return to Quebec City. We used to be more confident about this.

However, there could still be a small, slim opportunity to see NHL hockey in the old capital again in the "near" future.

La Presse sports journalist Richard Labbé provided some information during his appearance on the Sortie de Zone podcast, in collaboration with 98.5 Sports and La Presse.

According to Labbé, the Nordiques' only hope lies in the Senators' situation. If the new stadium plans situation don't work out, and they have to move as a last resort, Quebec City could serve as a spare wheel for the NHL.


National Hockey League people behind the scenes have told me that there's only one scenario for the Nordiques' return, and that's the Senators' move.

It makes sense because it stays in Canada. In the same conference and division. An "average" Canadian market unlike Toronto and Montreal, but much healthier than some U.S. dealerships.

But the chances of the Senators leaving the Canadian capital are very, very slim.
