The 18,259 tickets for Game 5 between the Remparts and Mooseheads were sold out in… 18 minutes!

I’m not saying the Nordiques’ return should be considered more seriously, but this statistic speaks for itself.
Speaking of statistics, here’s another one concerning the Remparts, further demonstrating the passion for field hockey of the people of Quebec City.

Let’s not forget that the Remparts sold over 100% of their tickets, while the Florida Panthers, who recently booked their ticket to the conference finals, filled 98.23% of their capacity.
It’s just crazy to see a junior team in Quebec City playing in front of so many ecstatic fans, game after game.
Many know that Bettman isn’t the biggest fan of Canada in general, and probably even less so of Quebec (and therefore of the CH). Adding a second Quebec team would help the NHL and give the NHL commissioner one more team to hate.
