Bring back the Habs-Nordiques rivalry

Richard Meunier, Harrisville, R.I.

The recent The Hockey News poll (Oct. 11 issue) on "what city the NHL should go to next" was right on.

I believe fans would love to see two NHL franchises in Quebec (Montreal and wherever), maybe a resurrection of the Nordiques. It would definitely heat up an old rivalry, as all true hockey fans will remember "Le Guerre Civile du Quebec" or the Civil War of Quebec (for all you English speaking folks) during the 1980s.

Tons of penalty minutes and just plain old-time hockey. Just another road to revival for the post-strike NHL.
