Sports Economist - Quebec Arena

Brad Humphreys of the Sports Economist reports that the new proposed Quebec arena may face challenges. The article quotes Bettman, who says the proposed rink doesn't guarantee anything as far as getting a team:
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has already said: “I don’t want anybody getting excited…in the conversations that I’ve had with a variety of people, including the Mayor and the Premier, we have said we’re not planning on expanding. We’re not planning on relocation. So we cannot promise [Quebec] a franchise.”
