from Kevin Johnston at Cyberpresse (translated),
Joe Sakic did not hesitate a second when asked whether he believed that the NHL could revive Quebec. “There is no doubt in my mind that the NHL should go back to their sources in Canada, he said. There are some markets that are struggling in the United States. A hockey player loves to play in an environment that is favorable. An environment where the sport is popular.”
Many will take these comments with a grain of salt. Does the new retirement card playing politics or is it really sincere? A question for which he was well prepared: “The vast majority of players who have gone through have loved Quebec experience. I spent seven years of my life with you and I had many good times. I can never say enough about the fans who lived only for their hockey club. You know, I never heard a member of a winning team complain. There were grunts during our difficult years, but when we started up the slope, Quebec was the best place to practice our sport. It’s just a shame we could not go all the way to the people of Quebec.”
