Evolo Condos in Montreal
Some NHL players who haven’t gone off to Europe are planning a friendly weekly tournament between Montreal and Quebec City with the take to go to charity.

Wow. Yes. Amazing.
One of the best ideas I’ve heard in a while. Likely won’t happen though.
You think not? I think the main problem with the idea as described is they would probably have to play in secondary, suburban arenas not too accessible to downtown. The opening game is in Chateauguay ffs.
This is just a little thing, Taylor – it’s not something the NHL is going to be focused on shutting down. Quebec-born/raised players did the same thing during the last lockout, with all the proceeds then going to charity as well.
And you’re right, Kate, they won’t be playing in any large arenas. I see no reason not to expect them to barnstorm through places like the Verdun Aud though.
Hey if it works I’m not complaining, though I am concerned the game has become so incredibly corporate the NHL would try to put the clamps on it.
Especially if it became popular.
Perhaps I’m just a pessimist.
Fair enough, but it’s worth nothing that “the game” =/= “the NHL”. Junior hockey, senior leagues, CIS: You have all of these in Montreal. I hope they are all well-supported, especially during the lockout, but I fear they won’t be.
I note that the Ottawa ’67s had a remarkable 11,000 people out at their game last night, and good on those fans for it.
Well, the NHL may not own the game, but they may own the players — or better, they may own whatever the players play. Maybe the NHL could sue to get the proceeds, rather than having them go to charities.
