Notable Talk From Jeremy Jacobs

from Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald,

So with that, the good folks in Quebec City hopeful to land the next NHL franchise should take note. Jacobs does not see it coming to fruition.

“Quebec’s a great market and it has been for many years. But really when I think about it, I don’t see expansion going into the East,” Jacobs said, adding that the league is not in any current discussions with any prospective expansion group. “But that’s me, talking as Boston. I’m not talking as the league. The league may feel differently.”

It may be no coincidence that Jacobs’ Sportservice Corporation has reportedly signed a concessions deal with the group proposing to renovate Seattle’s KeyArena, but Jacobs called Rain City, a couple of hours drive from the Canadian border, a “very interesting location.” But he also mentioned Houston as intriguing, as he has in the past.

“Those are two huge markets,” Jacobs said of Seattle and Houston.

Again this year, Jacobs addressed participation in the Olympics. Though several of his players, Brad Marchand among them, are extremely disappointed that the NHL won’t be participating in these Games, Jacobs defended the league’s decision to sit this one out.

I’d rather the NHL go where the fans are passionate and love the game.

Stick to using Bettman as you puppet, stick to your own team as dementia maybe in its 1st stage.

I think Jacobs represents a lot that is wrong in the NHL.
