Quebecor, owner of Sun Media, made the statement as it reported a surge in income and profits for 2011.http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Hockey/NHL/2012/03/15/19508811.html
"Quebecor Media now has all the tools it needs to pursue its goals, which are to manage a world-class multipurpose centre and to bring a National Hockey League team to Quebec City," the company said in a statement.
Quebecor CEO Pierre Karl Peladeau has made it clear that he is very interested in buying an NHL team and moving them to Quebec. He has already 25 year 33 million dollar deal for naming rights on a new arena that is planed to be completed by 2015. If that year sounds fimilar to you that is since its the same year the Islanders lease ends with Nassau. At the moment it seems like its going be a two horse race between Brooklyn and Quebec for the Islanders, but there is a chance that a dark horse may come in and win this race. If not though then make your choice Brooklyn or Quebec. I know who I am rooting for in this race.
