...the Nordiques chances of relocation or acquisition of an expansion franchise in Quebec City? There is going to be a provincial election in Quebec in 2012 or 2013, and it's almost guaranteed that the separatist party the PQ will win a majority, and facilitate another separation referendum. If it is successful, will Quebec City's chances of getting a franchise be endangered? Is this something the NHL might take into consideration? (since it is a real possibility) and further, could anything happen to the Habs in such a circumstance?
