Segment 2: BIG Topic -
This week, Denis Lessard from La Presse reported that there were discussions between the Ottawa Senators, the NHL, Quebecor and the Quebec government to schedule five Senators games at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City next season.
Quebec City has been without a team since 1995. The 18,000 seat Videotron Centre is presently the home of the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL. In the unlikely event that the Quebec Nordiques return to the NHL, what would it mean for the Montreal Canadiens?
