What Percival Molson Stadium did for Montreal wasn't revitalizing the downtown; it revitalized the Alouettes. The Als were in serious danger of folding before the move to Molson. Now they are as hot a ticket as the Canadiens and the stadium experience is second-to-none despite the primitive facilities. So in that sense, the move downtown brought a lot of benefits to the city of Montreal.

As for Copps, the downtown is always hopping and exciting for big events at Copps, and it allows the city to bring in those big events which it would not otherwise attract. And even for the (lesser-attended) Bulldogs games, downtown around Copps is much busier - especially the bars pubs and restaurants - on game nights.
