Former Detroit Red Wings and new Tampa Bay Lightning Gm Steve Yzerman said that the city of Quebec deserve a NHL hockey team.

"Things have changed since the Nordiques left,said Yzerman while in Toronto during the World Hockey Summit. Quebec is a good market that would be able to support an NHL team. The current economy favors small markets"
