The more probable scenario for a new stadium is near the Peel basin at the head of the Lachine canal close to downtown and the skyline. A new electric suburban rail line will drop a station in adjacent Griffintown and the Bonaventure highway is very close with a fast link to the new Champlain bridge now under construction and deemed to be ready in 2020 or thereabout. The South shore commuters and American tourists often use that improving route into the city.
Thanks for the update.

If an MLB team were to return to Montreal, it would be great to see it retain the Expos team name and branding elements. They had one of the more unique logo designs and caps in all of baseball, IMO.
