A great Canadian hockey rivalry for about fifteen seasons. When I look at NHL hockey in Quebec (which is not often) and I think about Montreal and Quebec City (which again is not often) I sort of think about New York City when it comes to baseball and football. The NYC area has two MLB teams in the Yankees and Mets and two NFL teams, the Giants and Jets. And even though the Mets and Jets have both had some success in New York and have won championships of their own, they’ve always been the little brother of the Yankees and Giants. The Yankees are one of the most successful franchises not just in MLB but in pro sports. The Giants are not just one of the most successful franchises in the NFL but in pro sports. The Montreal Canadians are not only one of the most successful franchises in the NHL but in Canada and North America as well. And they were always the big brother of the Quebec Nordiques.
