The file on the return of the Quebec Nordiques to the NHL is probably the one that has been stagnating the most for several years.

After a big rise in hope about 10 years ago, it doesn't seem to be going anywhere despite the actions taken by the current Quebec government.

In short, in the last few minutes, for a rare occasion, we have a concrete figure.

"10% chance of the Nordiques returning, according to Eric Girard.

Thus, it is understood that there is still a 90% chance that it will not happen. This file is becoming more and more discouraging, definitely.

Recall that Gary Bettman recently announced that Quebec has again shown interest in an expansion team and that the NHL is keeping this in mind, but that expansions are not for the immediate future.

A seemingly strategic statement, following the announcement of the Kings.
