The annual Hockey Day in Canada celebrations were infiltrated by thousands of fans looking for a team of their own. On Saturday, February 11th, 22 bus loads of fans made the trip from Quebec City to Ottawa where the Senators were playing the Edmonton Oilers at Scotiabank Place. They were all sporting the powder blue of the former Quebec Nordiques with the goal of catching the attention of NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. "Nordiques Nation" was out to prove that they were passionate enough to deserve a second shot at the NHL. Rumours have been floating around that the Phoenix Coyotes are ready to make a move out of the desert and Jobing.com Arena, and Quebec City is one of a few speculated locations. The square outside Scotiabank Place, saw over one thousand Nordiques supporters chanting, and making themselves noticed by anyone walking by. They carried signs specifically addressed to Gary Bettman.
