Also a digital picture of Saputo Stade in Montreal for the Impacts finished additon of their 20,000 seat soccer specific Stade. Similar can be done in Quebec City with only the stadium at the league Minimum 25,000. The surrounde bowl seating and one level would put the fans close to the field and with excellent sight lines. Currently their will have about 40 luxury boxes surrounding the stadium, as you can see from the digital image, right above the single level of seating also closer to the field.

You're welcome, Steve!
Yeah, I think a second team in southern Ontario or better yet, directly in the Toronto area, would be good for the Leafs. It would give them direct competition for the hockey fans' dollars. Competition would mean they would actually have to try and win games to attract and keep a fan base. I've said for years that because their building was full every game, they didn't have to try to improve.
There's been talk of another team in Toronto for about five years now.
I think this is why there's such a push on by Burke this year. They look like a serious team now, especially with Frattin, Colborne and Franson starting to click and Reimer on his way back to regular play.
Thanks very much for the kudos on my edit of your story, "Alexander Ovechkin Sinking and the Washington Capitals With Him: NHL".
It's good to hear from someone back home who appreciates my ability, especially someone as talented as yourself. You are a prolific writer!
I am an erstwhile Leaf fan who has reclaimed that status in the last couple of years, due to the genuine effort made by Brian Burke to put a bona fide winner on the ice. Someone finally recognized that 'blue-and-white disease' was the real problem: the building was full every night, regardless of how poorly the team played. I think there was an experiment last season where it looked like Burke took half of the Marlies and dressed them in Leaf sweaters for a game. The fans didn't seem to care; they are too loyal and are abused by the players' lack of effort as a result.
It was a treat to see 'Ovy' and his friends get a real thrashing last week, losing 7-1 to my buddies in blue-and-white. It's just too bad it wasn't a shutout. There were a couple of 'firsts' in that game. Frattin got his first NHL goal and Franson scored his first as a Leaf.
Kessel now has 19 goals and 29 points in 25 games. Lupul is producing almost as much simply because he's on the same line. He has ten goals himself. I hope Connolly can stay healthy. I think Burke made a mistake in picking him up.
Maybe I'll edit another story of yours in the near future.
To Your Good Health,
Beginning of the end of the Preds in Nashville? :) (Wishful thinking I know)
Wilson is a Battleford, Sask. native.

Do you see a Canadian owning this team to possibly someday move them to W. Canada? Maybe he moves the Stars to Seattle which helps your realignment obsession and love for Seattle?
This news broke 2 days ago here in the US.
Cox: NHL set to unload or move Coyotes
How about your Leafs? I sure wish I'd have snuck them in to the bottom of the East playoffs when I made my picks. John Michael Liles has been a great addition but also the goalie. Kessel for Hart so far!
Coyotes drew 6,300+ last night vs. Nashville. Enough of this crap. When do they move? I know I know, "Fans are staying away because of the uncertain ownership situation" yeah sure. DId you hear Reinsdorf is back in the mix for a THIRD time to try and save the day? When is enough enough?
