I doubt PK would sell to any group in Hartford. He's the type of guy that does not want admit failure, especially to the Hartford fans. My guess would be Quebec.
  5. What would be your guess? Quebec maybe? It's no secret that their attendance and financial situation is not great.

Could be because they always gave the Whale respect.
  8. Anytime the Bruins lose is a Happy Time!!!!!!

And yes you must be Mr. Perfect right?????? Weren't you the guy that said Winnipeg wouldn't get a team again? How did that prediction work out for you? Pot calling the kettle black.

Any politician that would approve an arena smaller than XL would need to be impeached right away.

Totally understandable!!!! In all honesty there isn't an NHL team in the US that I really like.
  12. Their review of the XL Center seemed to be very positive. I'm sure with a renovation the XL would probably move up past Providence.
  13. I've always had a soft spot for Montreal........... A great team and fans that always respected the Whalers when they visited Hartford.
  14. i always had a soft spot for the Montreal Canadians.
