Jets avoid disaster.

It has been less than a month since the return of the Winnipeg Jets, and NHL teams are already testing us.  Seems the Philadelphia Flyers wanted to deal us Mike Richards.  The catch?  we would just have to give up Evander Kane, Alexnder Burmistrov, and our first round draft pick.

Mike Richards is a fine player, but he is no Sidney Crosby.  I guess nobody bothered to fill in Flyers that Mike Smith is not managing our team any more.  Nice try guys, but no dice.

Having said that, it was great to see so many Winnipeggers in St.Paul for the draft.  I have to admit that I was pretty stoked to hear Chipman say the name "Winnipeg Jets"  so nonchalant.  Our GM may have mixed up the Twin Cities, hence the boos from the crowd, but overall it's great to have an NHL team again.

The Jets are back!!!

Well I have not written in the past couple of weeks.  I have been working, continually checking sites like for updates on our new NHL team, and partying more than usual.  Unfortunately I could not get season tickets, so I guess I will just have to be content with watching Winnipeg's first ever NHL game since 1996 at a sports bar like 4Play.  

I have a new found pride for my native city.  We proved all the sceptics and naysayers like the author of this website wrong.  Winnipeg truly is a world class city!
